Obituary for Lucia "Lucy" Infelise (Infelise)

Lucia "Lucy" Infelise (Infelise)
INFELISE, LUCIA “LUCY” – 1926 – 2017
On April 1st, Lucy left on her final journey. After a long life, lived on her own terms, she is taking her last trip. She danced to her own tune, doing what she wanted to do and when she wished to do it. Not even God could change Lucy’s mind. It all started at age 4 years, when she stood on the kitchen table and announced to her mother in Italian “that she wanted to be called “Lucy” not her given name “Lucia”. Thus began Lucy’s unique personality. Lucy passed away peacefully and with dignity at Lakeridge Oshawa. She was surrounded by loving friends and caring staff.
A proud northern Ontarian from a farm and logging camp in Timmins Ontario. She was predeceased by her parents Josephine and Paul Infelise (immigrants from Italy). Her brothers Gus (Mary) of St. Catharines; Tony (Angela) of Timmins; Arthur of Timmins and her sister Terese an RN at Oshawa Hospital for many years. She is survived by her niece, Johanne (Infelise) Colleni and family of St. Catharines. Cousins Lena Orlando of Barrie, Ralph Orlando of Timmins; Helen Orlando of St. Catharines and many kin from U.S.A as well as the Piraino family of Sault Ste. Marie. Lovingly remembered by dear friends Kivai and Robert Baylan of Toronto and Don and Norma Welsh and family of Bowmanville. Lucy came to Toronto in her teens and worked in the office at T. EatonCo. and later at Diamond Taxi. On retirement she came to live with Terese in Oshawa in 1993. She loved bowling, lawn bowling, euchre and the Blue Jays. For the last three years she resided at White Cliffe Terrace in Courtice, where she was treated with love and kindness. Everyone knew “Lucy”. She was a treasured family member of the staff. Kudos to the caring considerate 4th floor staff. You’re all so special. She loved you all. Profound gratitude to you all.
Where do we begin to thank all the compassionate, kind and dedicated people, who supported Lucy on her journey. To the ever patient neighbours whose enduring patience and help, always picking her up after falls; made it possible for her to remain at Snowberry Court for so long. To the Fire Fighters who put out her frying pan fires. To the Durham Transit drivers who waited patiently and all the extras you did for her, you’re great people. To the Dialysis staff- all of you- you were like family. You cared, were compassionate and took good care of her. No words are adequate to thank you for your patience, intelligence and concerns. You dear people really do God’s work. We’ll be eternally grateful to all of you. So much respect and admiration for all. To the last group of staff who took her on her final lap, especially the rehab team of 5th floor, your caring and dedicated to the end. Profound thanks to Lucy’s nurses on Friday and Saturday you held us up. Thank you wonderful people the world is a nicer place because of you all. Respecting Lucy’s wishes there will be no funeral service. Lucy will be laid to rest with her sister at Bowmanville Cemetery on Wednesday April 5, 2017at 11 a.m. Blessings and thanks to all who touched Lucy’s life. Rest in peace sweet Lucy.
“We all Loved Lucy”
