INES TOCCI
(nee CESARIO)
Born on December 13, 1941
Died peacefully on April 5, 2021

Ines was predeceased by her husband Franceso Tocci, her brothers, Ercolino and Giuseppe Cesario and her very special
nephew Roberto Cesario.
Ines is survived by her loving and devoted family. Son Amedeo (Dawn) Tocci. Her daughter Maria (Richard) Martens. Her grandchildren, Christina (Jaime), Angela, Francesco (Kianah) Tocci. Her brothers, Fausto (Camelina) Cesario, Aldo (Lorraine) Cesario, Ugo (Linda) Cesario. Her sister Carmelina Regno (from Italy) and her sisters- in- law, Franca Cesario and Lina Petrillo. Ines also leaves to mourn numerous nieces and
nephews from Canada and Italy.
Ines (Mama) was born in Italy and lived there for the first 18 years of her life. She
immigrated to Canada (as this was her dream from childhood) along with her husband in 1960, where she lived the rest of her life in Winnipeg, MB.
In her life's journey she first worked at an apparel factory. Later through the years Ines opened her own grocery store along with her brothers. It was there she thrived interacting with her customers and had a true sense of purpose within the community.
She was the epitome of the Italian Mother; Mama, Nonna and Zia. Family, friends,
cooking, gardening and her faith were central to her. She also made the best lasagna by far and her Italian peaches were legendary.
She was strong-willed, but loving,
welcoming and engaging to family, friends and even strangers.
Her most treasured times were those spent with her famiglia, especially the grand-children. In fact her grandson Frankie
became her superhero in the last months of her life.
She was the Matriach of the family and will be sadly missed.
The family would like to thank (Seven Oaks) homecare and nursing staff for their care and compassion shown to Ines (known to them as MaMa.)
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to the Canadian Diabetes
Foundation.
"So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love."

– 1 Corinthians 13:13
