CAPERCHIONE, Annie (Née Marchetti)



Surrounded by the love of her family on Thursday, December 30, 2021 at Niagara Health St. Catharines Site, at the age of 80.  Beloved wife and best friend of the late Gaetano “Guy” for more than 58 years.  Cherished mother of twin sons Patrick and Paul (Krista) and daughter Cristina, and predeceased by her daughter Luisa.    Nonna will be lovingly remembered by her granddaughters Hannah and Karlie.   Dear sister of Vic (Kathy) Marchetti and Maurice (Judy) Marchetti.  Annie is predeceased by her sister Licia (Renato) Valencich and her parents Ferruccio and Natalia Marchetti.  Annie will also be missed by her nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends.  

  Annie arrived in Canada with her family when she was 10 years old.  She worked at Monarch and Packer Factories and enjoyed her later career as the “Cafeteria Lady” at Sir Winston and Lakeport Schools.  Annie was a long-time volunteer with the Club Roma Ladies Auxiliary and was part of the executive group who ran the golf tournament in support of Tender Wishes for 25 years.  She was an avid golfer herself, and a world traveler.  She was a great cook, and a loving mother who told it as it was, and her sassy spirit will never be forgotten.
