Rita Palandra Obituary

Rita Palandra

PALANDRA, RITA Passed away peacefully on October 17, 2020 at the age of 62 at her home in Toronto. Dear daughter of Antonio and Maria Caravaggi. Loving wife of Tony for over 43 years. Beloved mother of Michael and Laura (Martin Lavigueur). Dear sister of Linda (Tony Padalino). She will be dearly missed by her extended family and friends, both in Canada and Italy. Rita was a kind, loving, generous woman with a passion for reading. She made a lasting impression on anyone in her life. Rita was thoughtful and reserved, but exuded a warmth of spirit that made everyone around her feel special and cared for. She helped craft many great memories for her husband and children to hold in their hearts.
