Caterina (Nee Morabito) Zappavigna

June 3, 1926 - February 22, 2018


Caterina would have said, "God Bless You"
before thinking of herself throughout her
distressing journey with Alzheimer's.

Born in S. Nicola D’Adore to Nicola and Maria Rosa Morabito. Caterina and her Son John crossed the stormy North Atlantic by ship and crossed Canada by coal driven train to reunite with her Husband Giuseppe and her family in 1954. Caterina believed that the path for her family was through education because, she knew well what hard work meant. Predeceased by her brother Giuseppe Morabito.

Caterina will be dearly missed by her Husband Giuseppe of 70 years, Son John (Maria).

To the Zappavigna family and friends,
When a loved one dies, it brings grief and pain. Sometimes the comfort that we need comes from those who love us. It may also be found in words such as these. “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” It is my hope and prayer these words will comfort you as they did me.
