Anna Maria Corradi & Margaret Helen Meadows - In memorium

Seldom does one lose two neighbours within weeks of each other. Helen and Anna Maria were our neighbours for 37 years. One to the left of our home and the other to the right. Unimaginably they both passed away in the month of February, 2018.

Helen (as she liked to be called) died on February 1, 2018 at the age of 96. I referred to her as a feisty old English broad who spoke her mind, yet was gentle as a lamb. Anna Maria died at the age of 78 on February 24, 2018 after two decades of battling cancer. Both women leave a legacy of hard work and dedication to their family.

My wife and I moved into this neighbourhood long ago and now virtually everyone we knew has died, or moved away (most in an old age home). Life is so quick.

I ask that the Lord Jesus reunites these two women with their late husbands, Ernie and Giorgio, and may they rest in peace.

Farewell ladies - until we meet again,
Joseph & Maria Pede
