Obituary of Elisabeth Iacobelli

Iacobelli, Elisabeth
It is with great sadness that the family of Elisabeth Iacobelli (nee Fornetran) announces her passing on Sunday, February 3, 2019, at the age of 86 years. Elisabeth was born in Nikinci, Yugoslavia on March 14, 1932, the daughter of the late Joseph and Maria Fornetran. Elisabeth immigrated to Canada from Bruck, Austria in 1956 and settled in Windsor. Elisabeth met Angelo Iacobelli in 1958 and they were married on November 3, 1962. They settled in Leamington where they raised their family of 4 children. In 1973 they moved their family to the farm where she could plant and tend to her beautiful gardens and make a home. Finally in 1999 the first of her 5 grandchildren came along. She couldn’t wait to have precious grandchildren to shower with all her love. We will all miss her dearly and love her forever. Elisabeth is predeceased by her loving husband of 56 years, Angelo. Elisabeth will be lovingly remembered by her children, Cindy, Gina, Richard (Renee) and Ron (Carla).
