It is with great heartache that we announce the passing of Jenice Fumagalli on January 15, 2019 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre, Blairmore, AB. She was 83 years of age.
Jenice was born in Blairmore, AB on December 30, 1935. She married Anthony “Tony” Fumagalli on March 23, 1957; the couple had two children, Tony Jr. and Laurie, and fifty-seven years of marriage.
Music was a passion for Jenice. Beginning at a young age she played piano and accordion in a dance band with her Uncle Frank, and the organ for Catholic Church services and functions. She taught piano and music theory to generations of music students in the Crowsnest Pass and Pincher Creek, and was a cellist in the Crowsnest Pass Symphony Orchestra. Jenice was also an ardent animal lover. She will be deeply missed and fondly remembered.
The family is grateful for the exceptional caregivers at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre.
Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life are her children, Anthony “Tony” Fumagalli Jr. and Laurie Fumagalli; her grandchildren, Lauren Ross and Sydney (Michael) Ross; her brother, Larry(Bev) Comin; as well as her extended family and countless friends.
She was predeceased by her husband, Anthony “Tony” Fumagalli Sr.; her parents, Silvio and Neysa Comin; her sister, Florence (Gary) Keller; her son-in-law, Tim Ryan; and her sisters-in-law, Rica (Joe) Lenchuca and Molly (Harold) Morency.
