August 25, 2020 6 Condolences Print Obituary

On Monday August 24, 2020 Donata (Donna) Margiotta, loving wife and mother to three sons, passed away at the age of 98.

Donna was born on February 8, 1922 in Potenza, Italy to Giuseppe and Maria Colletta. She immigrated to Canada in 1953 with her sons Tony and Tito to meet her husband Giuseppe who had arrived earlier to find work and set up a home.

Donna’s primary commitment was to ensure her husband and family’s needs were always met. She devoted herself completely and unconditionally to family and friends. She was a remarkable person with conviction and determination and would not allow anything to obstruct her from completing what she felt were her goals and tasks. She worked tirelessly out of the home at Swifts and in the home. She never wavered from what she felt was her calling. She put others needs before her own and was always prepared to lend a hand to who ever needed it.

Donna was predeceased in death by her husband Giuseppe and her eldest son Tony. She is survived by her son Tito (Sandi), daughter in-law Dianne (Tony), son Peter (Lisa), grandchildren: Donna (George), Rodney (Maria), Guyle (Sandra), Tina (Damian), Leah (Dan), Ryan (Landyn) and several great grandchildren.

A private Funeral Service and interment will be held, a memorial service celebrating and remembering her life will be held at a later date. Invitations will be forwarded advising of a time and place.


In Lieu of floral tributes, If friends so desire, donations can be made directly to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

  2. Donna and Margiotta family, please accept my sincere sympathies on the passing of your dear Donna. I met her through my mother years ago. They were neighbours and worked together at Swifts for years. My mother shared many stories of their experiences. Donna, you were very dear to your grandmother and I had the opportunity of knowing you a little. as well, sometime ago. I hope that Donna’s influence in your life taught you how to have a great, fun-filled and satisfying life. I know my own mother will welcome Donna in heaven. May they both enjoy the peace and rest they both deserve. May all the wonderful memories you enjoyed of the life you shared with Donna give you comfort at this time and keep her close to your heart for a very long time.

  3. Our deepest condolences to the Margiotta family, on the loss of your loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Mario shared numerous stories with me this week about Donna’s wonderful sense of humour and her ability to handle the hijinks of three active boys! After school, the Margiotta house was the centre of fun and entertaining visits, where many a loaf of Donna’s fresh bread was polished off between Peter and Mario. She was a great nonna.

  4. We are all very sorry for the loss of mama Nonna. May she rest in peace . Love Jon & Melissa Pucci xo

  5. Peter & Lisa,
