It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of Mary Nelson, beloved wife of Cyril Nelson, on November 5, 2020 in Edmonton at the age of 92 years.

Mary is survived by son, Randy (Sheila); and daughter, Anne Marie (John) Burrill; as well as grandsons, David, Joshua, Zachary, Christian and Luke; great-grandson, Jackson; brother, William Rozecki; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Cyril; sister, Rose Baydock; and brother, John Rozecki.

Mary was born on December 21, 1927 in Malonton, in the Manitoba Interlake district. After receiving her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Manitoba, she taught in Brandon before moving to Moose Jaw, where she met and married Cyril in 1956. She worked as a French and Latin teacher at Central Collegiate before moving to the Saskatchewan Technical Institute where she taught English and Secretarial Sciences for over 20 years. After retirement Mary and Cyril moved to Sparwood, B.C. in the beautiful Crowsnest Pass country, where they enjoyed hiking and the company of new friends. They relocated to Lethbridge and were frequently to be found at Waterton Lakes National Park. In 2013, following Cyril’s passing, Mary relocated to Edmonton to be closer to her family. There, she treasured her new friends and the community that she found at Emmanuel Home.

While in Moose Jaw, Mary was an active member of her church, St. Andrew’s United. She loved travelling, sewing, cross country skiing, nature, theatre and music. An ardent CFL football fan, she was a fervent follower of the Saskatchewan Roughriders before switching allegiance to the Edmonton football team with her move to Alberta. Most of all though, she treasured time with her family and she delighted in the company of her grandsons. We will all miss her calm, patient manner, her words of encouragement, and her ready smile.

A Service in Celebration of Mary’s Life will be held for her immediate family. A video of this will then be posted for family and friends at in late November. Donations in Mary’s memory can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of ESTER ZAPPONE, beloved wife of the late Giuseppe “Joe” Zappone, at St. Therese Villa in Lethbridge, on Sunday, November 8, 2020 at the age of 90 years.

Ester is survived by her daughter, Filomena (David) Dowell; her son, Frank (Tracy) Zappone; her grandchildren, Robert, Tony, Marco, and Andrew (Brooke); and her great-grandchildren, Declan and Olive. She is also survived by her sisters, Rose Fiorino of Victoria, B.C., and Mirella Di Sabato of France; and her brother, Joe (Grace) Di Sabato of Lethbridge. Ester was predeceased by her husband, Giuseppe Zappone, her sister, Maria Di Natale of Italy, and two daughters: Mirella, in 2004, and Maria, in 2018.

Ester was born on September 3, 1930 in Agnone in the province of Isernia, Italy to Romeo and Giuseppina Di Sabato. She immigrated to Canada, where she married Giuseppe Zappone on April 28, 1956 at St. Basil’s Church in Lethbridge. She was a dedicated and loving woman who embraced her calling to the title of Nonna. Her four children, and later her four grandchildren, were her life’s cause. She took pride in keeping her family well fed and happy, both of which came to mean the same thing. As the home she and Giuseppe built grew in shape and size over the years, it was always full, a much-loved destination for family and friends, visitors from next door or from the other side of the world.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday, November 13, 2020 at 10:00 A.M. with Father Kevin Tumback celebrating. The Mass will be live-streamed and may be accessed via Ester’s obituary on the Cornerstone website.

Flowers are gratefully declined. Those wishing to make a memorial contribution in Ester’s name are encouraged to donate to the Mirella and Maria Zappone Fund for Social Justice at the Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta (
