1924 – 2007
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alda Banducci on Thursday, March 29, 2007, at the age of 82 years. Alda was born in Italy on July 30, 1924, and, at the age of 36, she immigrated to Canada with her family. For the next 30 years, Alda lived in Kitimat, BC, where, with her husband Steve, enjoyed many happy times with their many friends. Following the death of her husband, she moved to Vernon to be with her sons. Alda will be greatly missed by her two sons, Sam (Nella) and Franco, and her granddaughter Lara as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and relatives in Kelowna, Vancouver, Italy, California and Illinois. The family would like to thank Dr. Lemiski, Dr. Abdel-Kader, and all the nursing staff at the Polson Special Unit for the loving care provided to Alda.
Prayers will be recited at St. James’ Catholic Church on Sunday, April 1st, at 5:00 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated there on Monday, April 2nd, at 10:00 a.m. with the Reverend Father Martin Peyton, celebrant. Interment will follow in Pleasant Valley Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, friends wishing to do so may make donations in memory of Alda to the Alzheimer’s Society, 300 – 828 W 8th Avenue, Vancouver, BC V5C 1E2. Funeral arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155
