Iva Louise "Thup" Sammartino

November 8, 1923-September 18, 2017

With much love and many beautiful memories we are sad to announce the passing of our Mom, Grandmother and Great Grandmother.

She will be greatly missed by her daughter, Debi Gare (Ernie) and her son Barry Sammartino. Her  grandsons, Skyler (Theresa), Landon (Johanna), Graydon (Carly), and Leath Gare (Sarah). Her granddaughters, Sydney  Williams (Derrick), and Devyn Sammartino.  Her great grandsons, Hayden, Liam, Shanahan, Payton, Canaan, Boston, and Mannix. Her great granddaughters, Kiedis, Vanna, Brynn, and Presley. 

Thup is also fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her husband Roly (1985), daughter Jody (2016), and sister Mildred Hunter (1992).

Thup graced the world with her extraordinary zest for life. She had a deep love for her family, her Trinity United family, and for her communities of Armstrong and Vernon.

For all her many friends at Regency Court, and all her friends she met on her weekly Vernon travels, we thank you all for your kindness to Thup.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Trinity United Church at 11 am October 7.

"We are the keepers of the memories.  A sacred trust given by one who has journeyed on"
