PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS WEBSITE (AS DEFINED HEREIN). By using this Website, you signify your acknowledgment and agreement to these Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree with these Terms and Conditions, DO NOT use this Website (as defined herein).

These Terms and Conditions govern the use of the Book Of Memories websites (the "Website") and other services (collectively the "Services"). FrontRunner Professional ("Company," "we," "us," "our") reserves the right in our sole discretion to change, amend or modify (the "changes") all or part of these Terms and Conditions at any time and from time to time for any reason. Any changes to these Terms and Conditions will be noted by indicating the date these Terms and Conditions were last made. Any changes will become effective no earlier than fourteen (14) days after they are posted; provided, however, that changes addressing new functions of the Services or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. Your use or continued use of the Services after the date any such changes become effective shall constitute your express acceptance of the Terms and Conditions as changed, amended or modified.

Eligibility: Users under 18 years of age are not eligible to use the Services without consent. Users between the ages of 13 and 17, can use the Services with the consent and supervision of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age; provided, however, that such parent or legal guardian agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, and agrees to be responsible for such use of the Services. Company reserves the right to refuse use of the Services to anyone and to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove or suspend any Campaign, Donation, or the Services at any time for any reason without liability.

Definitions: In these Terms and Conditions "Campaign Organizers" means those raising funds, and "Campaigns" as their fundraising campaigns. Additionally, "Donors" means those contributing funds, and "Donations" as the funds they contribute. Campaign Organizers, Donors and other visitors to the Services are referred to collectively as "Users". The term "Campaign Organizers" shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a beneficiary of Campaigns.

Services: The Services are offered as a platform (the "Platform") to Users of the Services. Among other features, the Services are designed to allow Campaign Organizers to post Campaigns to the Platform to accept Donations from Donors. Although there are no fees to set up Campaigns, a portion of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services and those of our third party payment processors. Company reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services with or without notice. You agree that Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance thereof. The Company has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or uploaded by the Services. To the extent you access the Services through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier's standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Services may work with all carriers or devices. By using the Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding Company and other entities by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about use of the Services may be communicated to us.

Charitable Giving: Campaigns are not charities to which you can make tax-deductible charitable contributions. Any Donation you make through the Platform may be processed by an unaffiliated business partner for which a processing fee (in addition to our FrontRunner Professional Fee) is deducted. You understand, acknowledge and agree that Company is not a charity, and Company does not solicit charitable donations for itself or for any third-party charitable institution. Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations.

Administrative Platform Only: The Services are an administrative platform only. The Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations between Campaign Organizers and Donors, and is not a party to any agreement between Campaign Organizers and Donors. Company is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user. Company has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by Campaign Organizers, and Company hereby disclaims all liability in this regard. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the success or outcome of any Campaign. Donors must in their sole discretion make the final determination of making Donations to any Campaigns. Donors are solely responsible for asking questions and investigating Campaign Organizers and Campaigns to the extent they feel is necessary before making a Contribution. All Donations are made voluntarily and at the sole discretion and risk of Donors. Company does not guarantee that Donations will be used as promised. Company does not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, or legality of any Campaign. Donors are solely responsible for determining how to treat their Donations for tax purposes.

No Verification of Campaign Information: We do not verify the information that Campaign Organizers supply, and do not guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by Campaign Organizers. We disclaim and assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws.

Your Registration Obligations: You may be required to register with Company in order to access and use certain features of the Services. If you choose to register for the Services, you agree to provide and maintain true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services' registration form. Campaign Organizers must register using their true identities, including their name and any image purporting to depict the Campaign Organizer. Registration data and certain other information about you are governed by our Privacy Policy. If you are under 13 years of age, you are not authorized to use the Services, with or without registering. In addition, if you are under 18 years old, you may use the Services, with or without registering, only with the approval of your parent or guardian. Certain aspects of our Services may also require you to register with (and agree to the terms of) third party service providers (e.g., payment processors or charitable donation processors) in order to utilize such Services. While we may help facilitate such registration in some cases, we are not a party to any such relationships and disclaim any responsibility or liability for the performance by such third parties. We may exchange information with such third party services in order to facilitate the provision of Services (and related third party services).

Public Display of Donations: Donors have the option to publicly display their Donations for public viewing or allow their information to be provided to the Campaign beneficiary(ies). To keep the details of your Donation private, simply click the appropriate checkbox during the Donation process. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information on the ways that we may collect, use, and store certain information about you and your use of the Services.

Payment of Donations: In order to contribute to a Campaign, Donors will be required to provide Company information regarding its credit card (i.e., VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or other payment method. Donors represent and warrant to Company that such information is true and that Donors are authorized to use the credit card or payment method. Donors agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and that all Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. Donors agree to promptly update account information with any changes that may occur and to pay the Donation amount that you specify. Donors hereby authorize Company to bill Donors' credit cards and payment methods in advance on a periodic basis until Donors terminate periodic payments through the Platform.

Fees: Company does not charge Campaign Organizers any upfront fees for Campaigns. Company retains a portion of each Donation contributed to Campaigns in the amount of four percent (4%) ("FrontRunner Professional Fee"). A portion of the Donation is payable to our third party payment processors ("Processing Fee"). Donors acknowledge that by contributing Donations to Campaigns, Donors are agreeing to any and all applicable terms and conditions set forth by a third party payment processor, in addition to these Terms and Conditions. The portion of each Donation payable to and retained by our third party payment processors are:

        • US Users ONLY: Third party payment processor charges a fee of 2.9% AND $0.30 per donation for VISA, MasterCard or Discover cards or 3.4% AND $0.30 per donation for American Express cards.

        • CA Users ONLY: Third party payment processor charges a fee of 2.9% AND $0.30 per donation for VISA, MasterCard or Discover cards or 3.4% AND $0.30 per donation for American Express cards.

All Tribute Pay Fees and Processing Fees ("Fees") are deducted directly from each Donation and are not reflected in the amount which Campaign Organizers can withdraw from the Campaign. We reserve the right to change any of the Fees from time to time. If we change any of the Fees, we will provide notice of the change on the Website or otherwise, at our option, at least fourteen (14) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the change in any of the Fees becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Fees.

Indemnification: You agree to release, indemnify and hold Company and its affiliates and their owners, officers, employees, directors and agents harmless from any from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, rights, claims, causes of action, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Services, any Donation or Campaign, your violation of these Terms and Conditions or your violation of any rights of another. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine

DISPUTE RESOLUTION - ARBITRATION (READ CAREFULLY): You agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between you and Company (including our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns). Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Company should be sent to 2501 Parmenter Street, Suite 300A, Middleton, WI 53562, Attn: President, with a copy by email to support@tributepayments.com ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Company and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) days after the Notice is received, you or Company may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Company or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Company is entitled.

The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Terms and Conditions, and will be administered by the AAA.

Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless both you and Company agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

Please read this Privacy Policy ("Policy") carefully to understand how we will use and protect your Personal Information. We will not share your Personal Information with anyone except as described in this Policy. Changes to this Policy will be announced on our Site, so please check back periodically. This Policy forms part of the Company’s TERMS AND CONDITIONS and is incorporated by reference to those Terms and Conditions.

This Policy outlines Company’s general policies and practices for protecting your private information on this Site. It covers why Company collects information, the types of information it gathers, how it uses such information, and the notice and choice affected individuals have regarding Company’s use of and their ability to correct their information. This Policy applies to all personal information received by Company whether in electronic, written, or verbal format.

Company reserves the right to modify this Policy at any time and will do so from time to time. Each modification shall be effective upon its posting to the Site. Your continued use of the Site following any such modification constitutes your acceptance of any change(s) to this Policy. It is therefore important that you review this Policy regularly. If you have any questions concerning this Policy please contact Company at support@frontrunner360.com.

1. Scope

This Policy covers the Site in part and as a whole. However, it does not apply to entities that Company does not own or control, including without limitation, Campaign, advertisers or developers of content. Company may include third-party links on the Site. These third-party sites are governed by their own privacy policies and NOT this Policy. Company therefore has no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these third-party sites. Please check the privacy policy of any third-party site you interact with on or off the Site.

2. General Policy Provisions

  1. Definitions

    “Personal Information” includes both “Personally Identifiable Information” and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information”.

    "Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact or locate you. Personally Identifiable Information is requested when you register with us, make a Donation, correspond with us, or otherwise volunteer information, for instance, through the use of "Contact Us". Personally Identifiable Information may include, without limitation, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, and other identification and contact information.

    "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information. We gather certain information about you based upon what you view on our Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Site’s Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (‘Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop

    “Sensitive Personal Information” means Personal Information that reveals race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or that concerns an individual’s health.

  2. Notice

    Company shall inform you of the purposes for which it collects and uses Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which Company discloses or may disclose that information. Company shall provide you with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of your Personal Information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when you are first asked to provide Personal Information to Company, or as soon as practicable thereafter. In any event, you will receive notice before Company uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.

  3. Choice

    Company will offer you the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether Personal Information is to be disclosed to a third party or to be used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. For Sensitive Personal Information (when applicable), Company will give you the opportunity to affirmatively or explicitly consent (opt-in) to the disclosure of the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. Company will treat Sensitive Personal Information it receives from anyone the same as it would treat its own Sensitive Personal Information.

  4. Security

    Company shall take reasonable steps to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. No company is immune from Internet attacks or data breaches. Company cannot guarantee the security of information on or transmitted via the Internet.

  5. Data Integrity

    Company shall only process Personal Information in a way that is compatible with and relevant to the purpose for which it was collected or has been authorized. To the extent necessary for those purposes, Company shall take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information is accurate, complete, current, and reliable for its intended use.

  6. How to Access Your Information

    Company offers you choices for the collection, use and sharing of Personal Information. You may notify Company of your preferences, or change any Personal Information, by emailing support@frontrunner360.com. Please be sure to provide complete account information so Company can identify you in its records.

    You may also stop the delivery of future promotional e-mail from Company by responding directly to any email you receive with a request to remove you from the mailing list.

3.Reasons the Company Collects Personal Information

Company collects your Personal Information because it helps deliver a superior online experience, gives you convenient access to the Site for browsing, and allows key features of the Site to function properly. In order to better provide you with this superior level of customer service, our Site collects two types of information (referred to in this policy as "Personal Information") about our visitors: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. In addition, your Personal Information helps Company keep you informed about the latest announcements, special offers, and events that you might like to hear about.

4. Information Company Collects About You

Any time a guest or member (collectively “Users”) accesses the Site they receive a “cookie” from Company. Company uses cookies (small pieces of data stored for an extended period of time on a computer, mobile phone, or other device) to make the Site easier to use and to protect both you and Company. These cookies give Company certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information about your use of the Site. You may remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to use the Site. Company may also use pixels, widgets and other tools to gather such Non-Personally Identifiable Information to improve the experience of the website or mobile application.

Company may contract with third-party service providers to assist it in better understanding its Site Users. These service providers are not permitted to use the Non-Personally Identifiable Information collected on Company’s behalf except to help it conduct and improve its business.

When you access the Site from a computer, mobile phone, or other device, Company may collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about the user base as a whole. Company will not use the information collected to market directly to that person.

Company keeps track of some of the actions you take on the Site such as member profiles and pages you view. Even if you do not provide certain information, Company may obtain it from you profile or the pages of its Site that you visit. Company may retain the details of connections or transactions you make on the Site.

5. Information You Provide to Company

To become a User, Company shall collect certain Personally Identifiable Information, which you are required to provide. Information that is not required shall be deemed voluntary and you may provide such information, although not mandatory.

While using the Site, you may provide text, files, images, photos, videos, location data, or any other materials (collectively “Content”) to Company by uploading, posting, or publishing the Content on the Site. Frequently, Content you place on the Site will contain a picture of your face. Company may retain the details of connections or transactions you make on the Site.

Where applicable, when you interact with other Users on the Site, you may provide other information about yourself, such as political or topical views, religious affiliation, or marital status. Any information in a public forum is accessible by anyone, including people who are not members of the Site. Please be aware they may share information you give them with other Users you may not know. They may also share the information outside the Site without your prior approval. Company does not have control over the actions of its Users and accepts no responsibility or liability for their actions. Please keep this fact in mind when using the Site, and use care when disclosing Personal Information to other Users of the Site.

Company may also collect information from ads you click on when using the Site. Company may also keep track of links you click on in e-mails you receive from Company. This is done to increase the relevancy of the ads you see.

6. How Company Uses Your Personal Information

Company uses the information you are required to provide to become a User in order to insure you are over the age of thirteen (13). THE SITE IS NOT MEANT TO BE USED BY ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF THIRTEEN (13). If you are under thirteen, please do not attempt to register with the Site or send Company any Personal Information. Company may also use your age information to be sure you receive an age appropriate experience while using the Site.

Company will use the information it collects to provide, without limitation, services and features to you and facilitate payment for any Donations between Campaign Organizers and Donors and provide information to Campaign Organizers and Campaign beneficiaries. Company will also use the information to measure and improve the Site, and to provide you with customer support.

Company may contact you with new or updated products or services, designs, routes, surveys, or other related announcements from time to time. You may opt-out of all communications except essential updates. Company may include Content in the e-mails sent to you.

Certain software applications and applets transmit data to Company. Company may not make a formal disclosure if it believes its collection of and use of the information is the obvious purpose of the Site or its related application. If it is not obvious that Company is collecting or using such information, it will disclose its collection to you the first time you provide the information.

Company may use the information collected to prevent potential illegal activities. Company may also use a variety of methods to detect and address anomalous activity and screen content to prevent abuse.

Company may use your information to serve you personalized advertising. Company does not share your information with advertisers without your consent. Company allows advertisers to choose the characteristics of Users who will see their advertisements. Company may use any of the Non-Personally Identifiable Information it has collected in any fashion to select the appropriate audience. Company will not tell the advertiser who you are as part of this process. When you interact with an advertisement there is a possibility that you may receive a cookie from the advertiser.

7. How Company Shares Your Information

Company shares your Personal Information with third parties when it believes you have permitted such sharing, that it is reasonably necessary to offer services, or when legally required to do so. Company will not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties in a way that it thinks violates your privacy. The following non-exhaustive list contains examples of how Company shares or could share your information:

  1. If Site allows you to invite a friend to join the Site or become a User, and you choose to do so, the invitation will contain information that will allow your friend to identify you. The invitation may contain information about other Users your friend might know.

  2. Certain information you provide to Company may be shared by using the Site’s search function. This allows other Users to locate your profile and it allows new Users to find people they know on the Site.

  3. Company provides some public information to search engines. This information allows search engines to locate the Site. It also allows people to locate you on the Site using a major search engine. This does not mean all information you post on the Site may be accessed using a search engine.

  4. There are also times when Company may make certain Personal Information about you available to strategic partners or third parties. These companies may help Company process information, render services to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in products and services, or conduct research or satisfaction surveys. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to use Company's Site and services.

  5. Company may also share Personal Information when it has a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect itself and you from people violating the Terms and Conditions of the Site. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, and courts or other government entities.

  6. Company may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) if it has a good faith belief that the law requires such a response. This may include requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States if Company has a good faith belief that the response is required by law under the local laws in that jurisdiction, is applicable to users from that jurisdiction, and is consistent with generally accepted international standards.

  7. Company may disclose analyzed data in the form of purchasing trends or statistical data. No Personally Identifiable Information will be attached to this disclosure.

8. Business or Asset Transfer or Sale

Company may be sold, sell or buy businesses or assets of businesses, or merge with another business. In such transactions, Personal Information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Company, a line of business of Company, or substantially all the assets of Company are transferred, Personal Information may well be one of the transferred assets. Company will make a reasonable effort to provide notice on the Site, and to notify you via e-mail to the most recent e-mail address that you have provided of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

Obituary

Eulogy - Celebrating 101+ years of Rosa Rinaldi
Born April 29th, 1921, in Roseto Valfortore, Foggia, Italy, Maria Rosa Rinaldi (nee Trigiani), lived a life in
duration and fullness, that most can only ever imagine. Known to her friends and family as Rosa, Zia
Rosa, Mrs. Rinaldi, Ma, Mum, Nonna Rosa, Grandma Rosa and Mamma-Nonna, she exuded a strength
and resilience that can only be a product of the love she gave and received in her 101+ years of life. A
Centurion, having survived her husband by 25 years (the late Antonio Rinaldi, 1998), six siblings
(Rosalina (Michele), Michele (Giuseppina), Michelina (Francesco), Caterina (Giuseppe), Cosimo and
Filippo), son-in-law (Giuseppe (Joe) Basso), and hundreds of family, friends and neighbors, Rosa had her
share of trials through her century-plus long life. But that never kept her down long; she always had
more courage, strength, life, and love to give.
In 1938 in her small Italian mountain village, she met and fell in love with Antonio (Tony). She often
recounted how she had waited for him to return from war (WWII). After six long years, in 1946 they
were reunited. Rosa remembered how handsome he looked when he returned, how he had learned
English and the very first time, he kissed her. They married in January 1947, had their first child (Maria
Teresa) in 1948 and boarded the ship “Brazilia” in 1950 to start a new life in Canada. In 1952 they
purchased their first and only home in an Italian community in south Etobicoke. Rosa and Tony opened
their home and hosted many Rosetani who arrived in Canada. Every corner of their small bungalow had
beds in it. Sometimes as many as 15 borders at one time. She would cook and clean and they would lend
their skills and support to anyone living under their roof until they were able to find employment and a
home of their own. Her long kitchen table was always full of paesani, pasta, pane, and vino. In 1954,
they welcomed their son Lorenzo. Now a complete family.
A product of her era, you would never find Rosa idling. Upon arriving in Canada, she worked in the
laundry room at St. Joseph’s Hospital. Never having driven, on a few occasions when she missed her bus,
she would walk 2.5 hours home. In addition to running a household for not only her own family, but
others she extended her home to, she later worked closer to home at Polytainers as a factory worker.
One of her proudest stories to share was how she was promoted to ‘Lead Hand’. A huge
accomplishment for a woman in those times and the reward for being a dedicated, hard-working, and
loyal employee. She worked there with pride for decades until her retirement.
Rosa was content with living life simply and selflessly. Devoted to her family, she gave of herself
however and whenever she could. Whatever she did, she gave it 200%. Following Tony’s retirement,
they travelled annually to Cuba and even Argentina, creating lasting memories that she spoke of well
into her final years, forming genuine friendships and finally enjoying the hard work she had put into life
in general. It was often she would recount the long-distance phone calls she received from her dear
friends and how she enjoyed the conversations.
In 1998, she lost her husband of 51+ years. She often spoke of the sense of loneliness she felt with his
absence. Rosa remained in her small bungalow, living on her own until a few years ago. This was her
choice and possible in part to the thoughtfulness and kindness of her neighbors since 1955; for which
she was always grateful. Her strength and selflessness were passed to her daughter Teresa and son
Lorenzo, who continued to support Rosa’s wishes to remain independent and in the comfort of her
home, which held so many precious memories. She always welcomed her family with a Sunday lunch;
delicious and cooked with love. You might catch her staring at you from her assigned head of the kitchen
table seat, only to come to realize later in life, she was absorbing every moment, and taking it all in in

awe. The fulfillment she experienced watching her five grandchildren grow into adults and the cherished
moments being a great-grandmother to her five great-grand-children was exuding from the smile she
had when she spoke of any of them. Well into her 80’s and 90’s you might find Rosa putting a fresh coat
of paint on her interior walls while up on a ladder, knitting a blanket or scarf, making homemade tomato
sauce or focaccia slabs to feed a small village, shoveling her snow or more enjoyably, tending to her
enormous vegetable garden. Her garden of 100 tomato plants and a variety of other herbs and
vegetables was her passion, and joy. She had accumulated decades of valuable earned experience and
committed with pleasure to tending to it with pride.
On a nice day, if she wasn’t in her backyard garden, you might find her sitting in her garage, or on her
veranda, or perhaps even planting or watering her beloved red geraniums. In her younger mature years,
if the front door was closed or she didn’t answer her phone, she was likely walking with her buggy to the
local grocery store to buy her Cheerios and a few other simple items. In colder weather and in her more
challenging health years, she would sit and watch her Italian shows on TV and reminisce while looking at
all her family photos on her walls or flipping through her photo albums. She would wait for Teresa and
Lorenzo’s daily ‘check-in’ calls and get comfort in just hearing their voice. If their calls were late, she
would promptly call them and ensure all was well with them and their families.
Rosa always kept the front door open, to welcome any visitors which was often the highlight of her day.
She said time passed more quickly and enjoyably when her kids/grandkids/great grandkids would pop
in. She always had some taralli, lemon muffins or ice cream sandwiches to offer. You could not say no;
you would never leave hungry. And you were guaranteed to hear a story, or two, or five, which no doubt
she had told you many times before, but you sat and listened as though it was the first time because it
gave her such joy and pleasure to share her memories with you and have someone to keep her
company. When you didn’t call or visit for a while, she would nudge at you and sarcastically remind you
where she lived. Rosa would often spend her Saturday mornings sitting at her kitchen table with Teresa,
talking about anything and everything.
Five years ago, at the age of 96 following some health complications, Rosa required assisted living. She
settled in her new home at Villa Forum Long Term Care in the summer of 2018. Although never
comparable to her south Etobicoke bungalow of 66+ years, after having endured so much throughout
her already very long life, Rosa adapted and found new routine. She enjoyed the visits the home had
from heritage musical performers, the seasonal cultural activities, and events, and the conversations
and company of some new-found table mates and neighbors, relatives and paesani who also called it
home. Any time she was able to spend outdoors she enjoyed. A sweater over her shoulders, always a
necessity. Kind staff who took the time to know Rosa, had the opportunity to share the humorous side
of her personality and the spunk, wit, and fire she still had inside her until her last day. You couldn’t get
Rosa to do something she didn’t want to, even with her weakened body and at 101+ years old. She still
had an opinion and preference and made sure her voice was heard. She was always grateful for the
small kindnesses shown to her by some thoughtful care givers and greeted all with a smile. Her 99th
,
100th and 101st birthday celebrations through challenging restrictions, were made special by the staff
who spoiled her with compliments on her special day, and a few dear people who arranged the added
touch. Many would often be in disbelief when she shared her age. The food never quite measured up to
this Centurion’s homemade classic Italian standards, but she still looked forward to a visit to the Chinese
buffet to celebrate a family occasion. She enjoyed her daily little glass of red wine and ginger ale, well
into her senior years.

Rosa particularly enjoyed receiving visits from her family, whether that be her children, grandchildren,
great-grandchildren, friends, or relatives. She greeted you with “Cuore di Mama” and would sit and
stare at you and see in you the life she had lived so long ago. For many years in her family home, she
enjoyed the company of her canary Charlie; she was always playful when one of the family dogs came to
her new home for a visit. She would bid farewell to her great-grandchildren with “Nonna Love You”.
Rosa most treasured and looked forward to conversations with loved ones. She always enjoyed being
asked to recount a story of her youth, work, husband, family, or life in general; or tell you about the
people in her vacation photo albums or her garden. It was so meaningful to her when someone would
remember her on Christmas, her birthday or special occasion, or for no reason at all send her a card or
phone call, or surprise her with a silly gift.
It is unfathomable to catalogue the personal experiences this independent, strong, compassionate,
courageous, devoted woman witnessed, endured, experienced, and survived through. From sending
home telegrams to Italy in the 1950s, to seventy years later Facetiming her family in the 2020s during
pandemic lockdown. Wars; recessions; pandemics; global, societal, technological, medicinal, political,
cultural; devastation, success, development, innovation; the sheer amount of modern history she has
lived through is almost immeasurable and inexplicable in one lifetime. She endured, she adapted, she
survived, she thrived. Rosa lived a full life.
Even after 101+ years of a life lived beyond measure, this wonderful woman’s absence has created a
void that will forever be irreplaceable. She taught us that a life lived simply, surrounded by loved ones, is
a life lived fully. It is with difficulty we say goodbye to the company of our mother, grandmother, great
grandmother, friend. With profound sadness we announce the passing of Maria Rosa Rinaldi, who died
peacefully on Sunday February 12, 2023; at the age of One-Hundred and One Years and Ten Months; at
Villa Forum Long Term Care in Mississauga, Ontario Canada. Cherished mother of Teresa and (the late)
Giuseppe (Joe), Lorenzo and Joan; Beloved Mamma Nonna and Grandma of Len & Carla, Tony and
Maria, Rita and Frank, Katherine & Anthony, (the late) Rosa; Adored Nonna Rosa/Great-grandmother of
Calista, Cayden, Chiara, Sienna, and Adriana; Fur-Nonna of Molly, Luna and Cooper. Our family lost a
matriarch, but heaven gained an angel. What an incredible 101+ years of life she lived that will live on in
her memory in our hearts for an eternity. As she always said in Rosetano dialect “Volit’vi
Bene”....“Always Love Each Other”. We will always love you. Rest in peace.
