Nina Disano

Posted By Obits On August 8, 2018 @ 9:21 am In Obituaries | 37 Comments

DISANO, Nina (nee D’Andrea):  It’s with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Nina Disano at Kirkland and District Hospital on Sunday, August 5th, 2018 with her family by her side. Nina is predeceased by her parents Antonio and Catarina (nee DiMarco) D’Andrea. She will be forever missed by her husband of 60 years, Anthony Disano and her sons Domenic, Paul, Michael and Danny Disano, all of Kirkland Lake. She will also be lovingly remembered by her brother Germano D’Andrea of Port Colborne, ON, her sister-in-law Clara Bottaro of Kirkland Lake; her nieces and nephews Dino (Anna) Bottaro of Brampton, ON, Leanna (Brent) Seaton of Kirkland Lake, Cathy D’Andrea of Coquitlam, BC, John (Adrianna) of Lakefield, ON, Mark (Mary) D’Andrea of Etobicoke, ON and David (Monica) D’Andrea of St. Catharines, ON.

Nina was born in Villa St. Lucia, Degli Abruzzi, Italy (just southeast of Rome) on March 25th, 1930. In 1948, she and her family emigrated to Canada and settled in Kirkland Lake where her father worked in the local mines. In 1958, she married Anthony and began a family of her own.

Nina was a loving and devoted wife, mother and aunt who had a beautiful smile that touched everyone she knew. She was a devoted Roman Catholic who regularly attended mass at Holy Name Parish until her failing health prevented her from doing so. Mom was an exceptional cook whose homemade lasagna was a huge favorite of friends and family. She loved gardening and also canvassing for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario, in which she did for over 25 years.

Nina’s family would like to extend their most sincere thanks for the excellent care she received by the nurses and doctors of Kirkland and District Hospital during her last months. Special thanks also goes out to the personal support workers from Closing the Gap, whose excellent homecare was of great comfort for her and her family during her final time at home.

In respect of Nina’s wishes, cremation has taken place and no funeral or visitation will be held at this time.

Condolence from Ada Ciccone and sons on August 14th, 2018 1:54 pm

To Tony and sons, We just heard about Nina’s passing today and wanted to send along our deepest condolences. As you know, our mother Ada and Nina were the best of childhood friends in Villa Santa Lucia degli Abruzzi. Growing up there had left them with so many stories! Our mother continues to recount them even today. Although their respective failing health had not allow them to talk as much as before, they were always so happy, animated and laughing when they did; whether in person or on the phone. Nina was a special lady that made anyone and everyone smile with just a few words and a wink. She will be missed by so many. Our love goes out to all of you. Ada Ciccone & sons, Lino and Mario

Condolence from Dolores D’Andrea and Family on August 22nd, 2018 9:23 am

Dearest Tony Nick, Paul, Danny, Michael and family

We are so sorry you now must live life here without your wonderful wife and mother. But, it must be a relief in many ways as it is so hard to see a loved one suffer and know things are not going to get better…and she suffered. We hope all of you can get some much deserved rest….you were the most dedicated loving group of men and she was blessed to have you there beside her thru all of her hardships with her health. You can always know you gave her your best! We had so many wonderful memories of happy times….family get togethers…lots of love and FOOD! She had the most beautiful smile, giggle, Italian brown eyes and enthusiasm and gave a lot of herself to her family and Kirkland Lake. We will miss her and very grateful we were and are couginis! Ti Vogliamo Bene!

Domenic Dolores Carol Ann, Michael, Robert, Larry, Beverley, Frances, Marilyn D’Andrea and all our families xxoo

When God walks by with quiet tread
to touch a loved one who’s then led
away from sleep, away from pain,
to wake with joy to live again…..
You’ll hear her on a whispered breeze,
a calling bird in swaying trees.
Do not weep long, but lift your eyes-
You’ll see her glory in God’s skies.
She’ll be there in a swallow’s flight,
her eyes in stars on a velvet night…
her courage strong in every tree,
her name carved well, for eternity.
Hide not your love within your heart,
for she will always be a part
of you and everything you do,
for death is naught when love is true
