It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Mafalda Bruni, also known as Mary. Beloved wife of the late Giovanni Bruni and cherished Mother to Anthony, loving Nonna to Matthew (Michelle), Melissa, Jordan (Melissa) and Parker.

She will be dearly missed by her immediate family as well as her sister Emma; her brother Nino (Aida); and sister-in-law Tina, along with many loving nieces, nephews, family and friends throughout Canada, Italy and the United States. Mafalda will be welcomed with open arms by her loving husband, parents, siblings and loved ones who passed before her. 


A talented accordion player, Mafalda enjoyed music and dancing, assisting with Church bazaars and visiting with family and friends. An active member of her Church, a loving mother, grandmother and wife, a faithful friend and kind neighbour. Mafalda had a joyful spirit, her strength and love for family and friends will forever live on in our hearts.
