CIPRIANO, Michelina (known to many as Nonna) – Has gone to be with the Lord in the early morning of Thursday, March 4, 2021 in her 78th year. Cherished mother of Angie Smith (Barry), Tony Cipriano and Gino Cipriano. Her dearest grandchildren were always the first thing on her mind Andrea, Hannah, Dylan, and Rebekah (Melissa and Andrew). She is survived by her brother Antonio Gerardo Maiorano (Giuseppina), Aunt to Lina Caruso (Giancarlo) and Dina Maiorano and great-aunt to Ernesto, Anthony and Larissa Caruso. Predeceased by her granddaughter Sarah and her first husband Raffaelo Cipriano. Michelina worked hard whether it was in restaurants, Wabasso Welland Plant or cleaning houses to provide for her children. She was very particular, and everything had a place. She showed her love by baking and cooking for her family and friends, and she wanted to make sure no-one was left hungry- if there were no leftovers, she would say she hadn’t made enough. The last few years she enjoyed sitting on the front porch talking with people as they passed by and in her final hours, she remained determined- or as her family called it stubbornness. A private family service has taken place. Memorial donations to either Camp Oochigeas or the Juravinski Centre would be appreciated by the family.
