Nella Marchetti, 87, of Moncton, passed away on Friday September 21, 2018 at The Moncton Hospital. Born on December 10, 1930 in Elce, Italy, she was the daughter of the late Gaetano and Filomena (Paoletti) Tittarelli.
Nella immigrated to Canada in 1959 where she married the love of her life Vincenzo in 1960. She worked for many years at Cy’s Seafood and Fisherman’s Paradise. She also billeted many Wildcats hockey players. Family and her faith were the most important things to Nella. One of the ways she showed her love was through her cooking. Nobody ever went to Nella’s house without having something to eat or bringing a care package home, whether homemade pasta or bread. She shared her generosity, honesty, strength and wisdom with the many who visited her.
Nella will be sadly missed by her three children: Dina Girouard (Jean-Guy), Gabriella Mockler (Thomas), and Luigi (Sherry), all of Moncton; three grandchildren: Ty, Michela, and Grace; her sisters: Delfina Cormier, Domenica DiDomenico, both of Moncton, and Nerina Marini of Rome, Italy; as well as several nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her husband, Vincenzo (1987); her brothers: Pietro, Elio, and Gabriele; and her sisters: Clementina, Maria Giuseppa, Elisabetta, Angiolina, and Ida.
The family will receive condolences at Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, 88 Church Street, Moncton (858-1900). Visiting hours are Sunday from 1-4 pm & 7-9 pm only. The funeral mass will be celebrated at Notre-Dame-de-Grâce R.C. Church, 858 Mountain Road, Moncton, on Monday September 24 at 11 am. Interment will be in Our Lady of Calvary Cemetery, Dieppe.
In memory of Nella, a contribution to the Friends of the Moncton Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.
