Marianne was born in Palizzi Marina, Italy and moved to Revelstoke at the age of five years. She enjoyed her family, home and her friends. Taking care of her family was her number one priority in her life. Marianne’s grandchildren meant the world to her. Anyone who drove by her home would see the pride she took in her garden and the spectacular display of colour in her flowers.
Marianne was predeceased by her parents Bruno and Maria Pratico, her beloved husband Bruno, son Robert John and brothers Victor “Lefty”, Tony, John and Vince. Marianne leaves her two beloved children: daughter Rosemarie and husband Ben Jacques and son David; her pride and joy, her grandchildren Jennifer, Joey and Spencer; three sisters-in-law Fran of Kelowna, Alice of Vernon and Marie of Revelstoke, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Marianne is also survived by a lifetime of memories that will always be dear to our hearts.
