It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Anna Maria Stampacchia. Anna passed away peacefully with her husband, daughter and sister Elena at her bedside following a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Anna is survived by her loving husband Gianni (John) of 49 years, her daughter Marta (Ian) son Matteo (Onora) and her six grandchildren also known as her angels Rina, Julia, Cristian, Matteo, Gianluca and Siena. Anna was born in Rome Italy, met and married the “love of her life”, had her two kids then moved to Canada. The family lived in Langley, Surrey and then Anna and Gianni retired to Chilliwack. Anna will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, sister, friend and most importantly the greatest Nona ever. Thank you to Dr. Bright and all the nurses at Cascade Hospice that saw her through her final days.
