It is with deep sadness and broken hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved mother Luciana Luisa Taronno (nee Consiglio) on December 22, 2021 at the age of 73 years.
Luciana will be lovingly remembered by her three sons, Tony (Emily), Roberto (Emilia), and Marco. She adored and was very proud of her five grandchildren, Nicholas, Stefano, Massimo, Marisa and Valentina.
Luciana is survived by her sisters, Rosa (Franco), Teresa, Bruna (Franco) and brothers, Francesco (Alicia) and Vincenzo. Also left to cherish her memory are her sister-in-law Filippa, and brothers-in-law, Mike (Sabia), Mimi (Joanne), and many nieces and nephews.
Luciana was predeceased by her loving husband Dino and brother Domenico.
Luciana was born in Calabria, Italy on March 23, 1948 and was one of seven children. She immigrated to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada with her brother Francesco and sister Teresa in pursuit of a better life.
Luciana was a very hard worker and dedicated employee, who maintained several jobs throughout her working career. Luciana's most recent employment was at Catherine Place, where she took care of the residents for over 20 years. Caregiving was just a genuine part of her nature.
Luciana's joys in life included spending time with her three sons and grandchildren, sharing a home cooked meal with her family and friends, gardening, going for walks in the park with her close friends Debbie and Kim, and seeing others happy.
A Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, January 4, 2022 with a viewing at 10:00 a.m., eulogy at 11:00 a.m., followed with a Catholic Mass.
Due to the current pandemic restrictions, only double vaccinated persons will be allowed to enter the parish (QR code and ID will be checked at the door). The service will be limited to include immediate family members, relatives and close friends.
The family encourages people to access the service virtually if they are able, so as to help keep our community safe. You can access the website, search for Luciana's obituary under "RECENT OBITUARIES", click on her name and then scroll down to the "SERVICES" section under the obituary, then click on the "JOIN LIVESTREAM" link.
Entombment will be located at the Holy Angel Mausoleum. It is the family's request that this part be attended by immediate family members only.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Heart & Stroke Foundation or to St. Boniface Hospital Foundation.

  • My Aunt Luciana was a genuine, unique and a special person. I will miss her deeply. Family and friends came first to Aunt Luciana. I was fortunate to have dinner with her and a family friend just before her passing. I have fond memories of her that go back 50 years that bring a smile to me every time. She will be in my heart forever. And now Aunt Luciana will be with her love of her life in the garden of heaven. - Posted by: Filomena Donaldson (Niece) on: Jan 05, 2022
