Gina Barugolo

January 31, 1928 – November 15, 2019
On Friday, November 15, 2019 Gina passed away peacefully at Stanford Place in Parksville, BC. Gina was born in Trail, BC, moving with her family to Vancouver and then to Port Alberni. After attending Sprott Shaw College in Victoria, she moved to Vancouver where she spent her working years using the office skills she learned. In her spare time she loved to spend time listening to classical music and doing renovations around her home.
Her talent of sewing is divine. She also loved to play tennis, a game at which she became very proficient. Gina enjoyed travelling and, on one of her trips to visit family in Italy, she met her future husband and love of her life, Lorenzo. After marrying they spent half of their married life in Canada and half in Italy, retiring in Qualicum Beach.
Gina was a true lady who loved her family dearly. Time spent with them was very precious to her. Gina leaves behind her beloved and devoted daughter, Adina (Jeff); her brother, Angelo; sisters-in-law, Cathy and Edna; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by her parents, Maria and Vincenzo Grigoletto; her husband, Lorenzo; sister, Elda; brothers, Dino and Joseph.
Special thanks to Dr. Elkarsh, family and friends who faithfully visited Gina and to the staff at Stanford Place for their kindness and care.
Mom, our bond will never be broken.
A family gathering will take place at a later date to celebrate Gina’s life.
