At LHSC – University Hospital on Monday, May 30, 2022 of Ilderton and formerly of Udine, Italy at the age of 81. Loving wife of the late Bruno Pittao (2021). Dear mother of Tommy Pittao and Rosemary Guil, Tracy Hill, and Tina and Wayne Parry. Beloved Nonna of Jordan and Natalie, Josh; Madison and Paulina, Miranda; Luke, Zach, and Will. Dear sister of Pat Sandri and sister-in-law of Mario and Maria Pittao, Enzo and Theresa Pittao. She will be fondly remembered by Dianne Pittao, Benjamin Hill, and her nieces and nephews.
Lina will be remembered as a feisty entrepreneur who would not let the various obstacles in life slow her down. Her work ethic and determination were her hallmark traits. From her early teenage years working as seamstress, then on to hairdressing, and finally Lina, along side her husband Bruno created Pittao Homes, and went on to develop land and build houses. While her work accomplishments are impressive, Lina’s passion was for ballroom dancing, gardening, cooking, and traveling. Lina and Bruno made Cabo their second home and made many wonderful, lasting friendships there.
The talents of her green thumb were evident both inside and outside her home and each visitor would leave with a full stomach after a delicious Italian meal prepared with love. While she took great pride in her ability to care for all, it was her grandchildren that filled her heart.
