January 1937 – March 2010
Lucia Fruscalzo passed away on Saturday March 13, after a long bout with several illnesses. Her last weeks were spent in the Campbell River & District Regional Hospital, where she received excellent and caring attention.
Lucia wished to specifically thank Doctors Gerhardus Jacobs and Piotr Juszkiewicz whom she respected profoundly, as well as doctors Heath, Gelinas, and all the nurses and staff that made her stay in hospital as good as it could be.
Lucia was predeceased by 3 brothers, and survived by her husband Lodovico and son Bruno, along with sisters, a brother, and many nieces, nephews, and friends in Campbell River, and throughout North America and Europe.
She requested there not be a memorial after her passing. Her wishes will be respected. The extremely high level of empathy, caring, and professionalism inside the ICU were very much appreciated by Lucia and her visitors. Displays of sympathy for the family may please be expressed in the form of donations in her name to the Campbell River & District Regional Hospital.
