Caterina "Rina" Polidori (nee Ceccarelli)

Passed away peacefully at her home in Windsor surrounded by her family on February 10, 2020 at the age of 73, after a courageous battle with lymphoma.

Born in Castro Frosinone (Italy) on August 22, 1946.

Predeceased by her loving husband Domenico with whom she shared 45 years of marriage. Loving mother of Ornella (Dino) Ciavaglia, Frank (Lisa) Polidori, and Orietta (Dave) Ciavaglia. Proud Nonna of her six grandsons Giancarlo & Marco Ciavaglia, Ryan & Jason Polidori, Nico & Christian Ciavaglia. Dear sister of Arcangela (Remo) Boroczfi of France, Cataldo (Piera) Ceccarelli and Santina (Bruno) Nuccilli of Italy.

Predeceased by her parents Giuseppe & Assunta Ceccarelli, parents-in-law Francesco & Caterina Polidori, sister/brother-in-law Giuseppina & Nazzareno Palombi & Donato Polidori.

“Rina” was passionate about her garden and flowers. Her fabulous cooking and baking which she shared with family and friends will be missed by all especially her grandsons which meant the world to her.

We would like to extend a sincere thank you to Dr. Dhar and wife Lilly, Dr. Kanjeekal and 4th Floor Oncology for their love and care. A special thanks to Nando & Pia Gidillini, Arcangelo & Titina Urbano and Silvana Colasanti for always being there for our Mom. We thank you and hold you dear in our hearts.
