Mona Grace Piazza passed peacefully into the presence of her Saviour, Jesus, surrounded by family on Thursday, March 30, 2017, at the age of 85. She leaves behind Bert, her husband of 65 years.
Mona was born on July 8, 1931 in Atwater, Saskatchewan to Axel and Margaret Ulveland. She was born at home, eight weeks premature. The priest was called to baptize her because she was not expected to live. But Mona did not give up easily—her feisty resilience pulled her through just as it continued to do throughout her life.
Mona grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan and Salmon Arm, British Columbia before moving to Kamloops with her
family. It was in Kamloops where she met and married her love, Bert, on June 16, 1951. Over the next twenty four years, she poured her life into raising their seven children as a stay-at-home Mom. Coming home from school to fresh baked bread and Friday night spaghetti are some of her children’s favorite memories.Read More & Leave Condolences »
