She was predeceased by her parents, husband Giuseppe, sisters, Antonia and Rita, sisters-in law, Nunziata and Elena, and brothers-in-law, Onofrio and Giovanni.
Marina will be missed by her children: Connie (Barry), Maria (Garry), Nancy (Nick), Michael (Anna), Betty (Dave), and Wanda (Joe), grandchildren: Christopher (Shaylene), Daniel (Amy), Joseph, Melissa (Kent), Jessica (Matthew), Marina (Evan), Michael (Shirlyne), Stefanie (Neale), Natalie, Amanda (Nathan), Julia (Ryan), Michaela, Alexia, Katerina and great-grandchildren: Emma, Gabriella, Eliza, Liam, Braden, Jacob, Matteo, Charlotte, Eliana, and Amelia.

Marina was born in Lipari, a small island off the coast of Sicily, on August 5, 1936. She married her beloved husband Giuseppe on March 14, 1955 and they created a lovely home where they raised five beautiful children.
In August of 1966, they made the decision to leave their homeland in search of greater prosperity and immigrated to Canada, where they were blessed with a sixth child.
Marina devoted her life to her family and many of her happiest moments revolved around spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Marina loved to cook, especially for her family, and made many trips to Italy to spend time with all her family and friends.
The family would like to thank all the doctors and health care staff from Concordia Hospital, Grace Hospital, Seven Oaks Hospital, St. Boniface General Hospital, Home Care staff, Dr. Ali and Dr. McMillan for all of their love and support for Marina over the years.

Our heartfelt and deepest sympathies to all the family. Losing a parent at any age is always a difficult journey, and she was so much more, to her children, grandchildren, siblings, nieces, nephews, and friends. Know that she will live on in each of you, and take comfort in the loving memories each of you have, and knowing she now at peace. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Le nostre più sentite condoglianze a tutti la famiglia. Raphaela and Gerald Lecomte - Posted by: Raphaela (Friends) on: Jan 17, 2023
My family first met the Manicotto family when the first came to Manitoba and moved right next door to us. My sister Ann and I were so excited to meet someone new, especially new to Winnipeg. Bonus, there were children our age! Mrs. Manicotto was the kindest, most welcoming person . We were always next door and always welcome for homemade pasta, pizza etc. The whole family treated my sister and I as family. Even after the moved from our area, we continued to keep in touch, with weddings , births, showers, and unfortunately deaths. She was an amazing person, and will be missed. Now she is with Joe. Rest in Peace. - Posted by: Margaret Feliksiak (Neighbour. Friend) on: Jan 17, 2023
