Obituary

Obituary for Rosina Colica (Logiacco)

With great sadness, we announce the passing of Rosina Colica of Squamish BC on Mother’s Day, May 9, 2021 at the age of 92.

“Rosa” was born on April 13th 1929 in Vibo Marina, Italy, the second youngest of nine children and step-children of Domenico and Rosa LoGiacco. She and her husband Leonardo Colica were married in 1957 and immigrated to Canada in 1961 and settled in mining town of Britannia Beach. They became parents of their only child Lucio a year later. Leonardo found work in the mill of the Britannia mine while Rosa perfected her home-making skills. In 1975, after the mine closed permanently, Leonardo became employed at the Woodfibre pulp mill, and the family moved into their newly built house in Hospital Hill where Rosa and her husband remained in until 2020.

Rosa was quite talented at cooking, baking bread, sewing, and doing needlework and crochet. She had a passion for gardening as could be witnessed by her flower gardens of gladiolas and dahlias at her Britannia Beach house, as well as the multiple varieties of roses and cascading clematis and wisteria at her Hospital Hill house. Very devoted to family, friends and neighbours, Rosa helped others unconditionally. She had a tremendous share of raising her two grandchildren Mary Ann and Vincent, and always made herself available to help or teach others especially in the areas of cooking and gardening,

Rosa is survived by her 97-year-old husband of 63 years Leonardo Colica, her son Lucio Robert Colica, her granddaughter Mary Ann Rose Colica, and her grandson Vincent Leonardo Colica.

She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She will be dearly missed.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, there will only be a small private family service. We thank George McKenzie of Squamish Funeral Chapel & Crematorium who has been entrusted with the arrangements.

We have been privileged to have had Rosa as our neighbour since 1983 and our adult children have never known life without the Colica family nearby. She was such a gentle loving hard working woman who had the incredible gift of the greenest thumb, the gardens she tended were magnificent. She was a fierce protector as there wasn’t a single bear that would approach her property that she wouldn’t just chase off back into the woods yelling at it while waving a tea towel as her weapon. Both Rosa and Leonardo have shared their knowledge with us over the years and we are better because of it. We thank her for the years of friendship and the family she has bestowed, for our connection will continue. She will be missed. She was loved.
