IACHETTA, Grazia GRAZIA IACHETTA 1921 – 2023 Mrs. Grazia Iachetta of Lethbridge, beloved wife of the late Mr. Alberto Iachetta, passed away at Chinook Regional Hospital on December 7, 2023, at the age of 102 years.
Grazia was born July 2, 1921, in Dipignano, Cosenza, Italy, to Frank and Anna Tutera. She was educated in Laurignano. On June 22, 1946, Grazia married the love of her life Alberto lachetta. They were married in Laurignano, but they resided in Grimaldi, Cosenza, Italy, for five years before Alberto came to Canada in December 1951. Grazia left her home country in 1952 to follow Alberto to Michel, British Columbia and later to Fernie, British Columbia. They resided in British Columbia for 23 years, and in 1975, they called Lethbridge home.
Grazia was a loving, caring, and devoted wife to Alberto for 55 years. They were more than best friends; they were soulmates. They were like two peas in a pod and loved doing many things together, especially travelling. They had the opportunity to travel to Italy three times and visit Sault St. Marie numerous times. One of their favourite trips was to Hawaii to attend their great-niece’s wedding.
Besides being a devoted wife, Grazia was also a devoted Catholic and devoted to the Madonna della Catena Laurignano. When she could no longer attend church services, Grazia would participate in the weekly Sunday service on television. Her prayer book was always on her table next to her rosary.
Grazia enjoyed knitting and crocheting. She knitted and crocheted numerous dishcloths, blankets, baby clothes, and doilies. At the age of 100, she was still knitting away in her chair while watching her favourite television programs. Wrestling, The Young and the Restless, Family Feud, and Italian shows, provided her with plenty of entertainment. However, it was the visits and phone calls from family and friends that she cherished the most. The birthday letters she received when she turned 100 from Pope Francis, Prime Minister Trudeau, and Mayor Blaine Hyggen, just to name a few, definitely put a smile on her face when she received them in the mail. Grazia was also a member of the Italian Canadian Cultural Centre.
Grazia had three things on her daily to-do list – get up, survive, and go back to bed. It is these three things that perhaps got her to the age of 102 – a life well-lived! Special thanks to Dr. Leam, for the excellent care he provided for Grazia, as well as the caregivers at St. Therese Ville (First East). Thank you to Ed Hellwigh for spending time with Grazia; she looked forward to his visits. Last, but not least, a heartfelt thank you to the 4A nurses and Dr. Mtshali at the Chinook Regional Hospital and Ed Vegter and staff at Norbridge Pharmacy who looked after Grazia.
Grazia is survived by her nieces and nephews from Lethbridge, Frank (Leona) Donato, Teresa Mantello, and Flora Donato; Anna Gignac, Lina Aceti, Joe lachetta, Roy lachetta, and Teresa Burns from Sault St. Marie; and Vanda Guerriero and Sara Germanese from Grimaldi, Italy. Grazia is also remembered by many great-nieces and nephews, great-great-nieces and nephews, and great-great-great nephews.
Grazia was predeceased by her parents Frank and Anna Tutera, her husband Alberto lachetta, her sisters Maria Donato and Sister Anna Flora, her nephew Joseph Mantello, and her cousins Fernando and Antonietta Rose.
