Death announcement

NARDILLI, Ermelina “Lena”

The family of Ermelina (Lena) Nardilli shares the news of her passing on Friday,October 2, 2020.  Beloved mother of Anita (Gary) Marshall and Linda (Stephen) Morrin.  Grandmother (Nonna) of Tyler & Audrey Morrin (Nathan), and Kelly LaForest (Rick) and great-grandmother (bisnonna) of Alvin LaForest.  Sister of Ben (Sylvia) Benvenuti.  Predeceased by her husband Ed Nardilli and her sister Libera (Vic) Paiero.  Survived by many nieces and nephews and their families.  Her latter years were blessed with living independently in her apartment in Toronto, and over the past year at the Empire Retirement Home (North Bay), and recently at the Serenity Hospice.  We are grateful for the social contacts she always enjoyed and the loving care received at the retirement home and the services provided by the LHIN.  Mom told us she didn’t want any “fuss” or celebration when her time came, but for all who knew her, you know how much she loved her gardens and food:  cooking for others or enjoying a meal out.  In lieu of flowers or donations we would ask you to celebrate Lena by planting something new in your garden in the spring or supporting a local restaurant, enjoying a meal with a loved one, and raising a glass to her.  Ciao for now Mom. To leave a message of support, to make a donation, or for more information go to: or call Paul Funeral Home at (705) 724-2024.
