It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Evelyn Francesca Farano of Coleman, Alberta. She was surrounded with the love of her family while receiving care at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre in Blairmore but was called into the arms of our Lord on December 12, 2019.
Evelyn Francesca was born in Coleman, Alberta on St. Patrick’s Day to proud parents, Antonio and Carmela Gianiorio. She blossomed into a lovely and graceful young lady who captured the heart of a young gentleman, Monto Farano. They pledged their love in holy matrimony on November 28, 1952 and were further blessed with a family of their own.
Evelyn Patricia Farano always had a zest for life. She loved socializing with everyone she met. She had a special place in her heart for animals and was known for spoiling her pets. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, curling and golf. She was a member of the Coleman Legion, Royal Purple and Catholic Women’s League. Evelyn was also famous for her Sunday family dinners and she taught us all that “Good food takes time!” She always took care of herself and often said, “You are what you eat.” Her love for her family was paramount in her life and she felt blessed with time spent together.
Evelyn worked in the hospitality industry for her entire career and she cherished many lifelong friendships that she made along the way. She has touched the hearts of many and we will miss her very much. May she find eternal joy at the banquet prepared for her in heaven.
She is survived by her devoted sons, Alan (Jody Ransome) Farano of Blairmore, AB and Guy (Mitzi) Farano of Coleman, AB; her cherished grandchildren, Christopher, Erika and Kyle; her sister, Teresa Korner; as well as numerous nieces and nephews, extended family and friends.
She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Monto Farano; her parents, Antonio and Carmela Gianiorio; and her brother, Roy Gianiorio.
A Graveside Service will be held at a later date.
Donations in her memory may be directed towards the SPCA, Box 725, Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0. Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
