Peacefully on October 5, 2019 with her family on her side, Antonia passed away at the age of 90, at St. Boniface Hospital.
Antonia is predeceased by her husband Donato; her parents, Vito Amico and Carmela Valluzzi; sisters, Lucia and Anna; her brother Giovanni Amico; father-in-law Salvatore Pellettieri and mother-in-law Maria Giuseppa Paterno; and all other in-laws from Canada and Italy.

Antonia was born on June 14, 1929 in Castelmezzano, Italy. On December 7, 1950 Antonia married Donato Pellettieri. In 1962 they left Italy and immigrated to Switzerland with their three children.
In 1967 Mom and Dad with the three of us came to Winnipeg, Canada to join Dad's three brothers and their families, and to give us a better future and opportunities. Antonia was a very hardworking woman who enjoyed gardening and cooking. She also worked full time in the garment industry and Misericordia Hospital until she retired in 1989. Her passion for life was fully dedicated to family and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
The family wishes to express their sincere thanks and gratitude to Zia Lucia and Zio Rocco for their continuous love, kindness and support as well as to other immediate and extended families and friends.
The family also extends their appreciation and gratitude to home care staff and all nurses, to the ambulatory services, doctors and staff at St. Boniface Hospital Emergency Department for their help, kindness and compassion.
