Our Blessed Mother and her angels came down on Thursday, January 29, 2015 to carry Angelo Mingotti to meet his Creator.
Angelo is survived by his loving wife, Yolanda; daughter Julie (Bruce); sons Richard (Sophita) and Paul (Robin); grandchildren Michael (Lisa), Alana, Ashley, Jakkrin, Nathan, Jerita, and Kyle. Also, in Italy, he is survived by his sister, Lucia; brother Attilio (Maria); as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father, Paolo; mother Maria; and brother Domenico (Nino).
In 1926, Angelo was born in Palazzolo, sull'Oglio, Brescia, Italy. He immigrated to Canada in 1951. He had many different jobs, finally settling in with the Canadian Pacific Railway as a mechanist, where Dad worked for 35 years, retiring in 1987. He volunteered and was president of the Holy Rosary Bingo Club for many years. He was also an avid gardener – Dad loved to see his tomatoes and lettuce grow. He loved to walk…everywhere, if he wasn’t walking, he was riding his bicycle.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Monday, February 2, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. in Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church, 510 River Avenue. A private family Entombment will be held in the Queen of Heaven Mausoleum in Assumption Roman Catholic Cemetery, 3990 Portage Avenue.
The family would like to thank the fifth floor staff at Poseidon Care Centre who made Dad’s final days comfortable.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 6 Donald Street, Winnipeg, MB, R3L 0K6.
