Maria Sacco, age 82, of Stratford passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her children on April 23, 2022. Born in Scigliano Calvisi Provincia Cosenza, Italy, daughter of the late Antonio Rizzo and Rosina Grande. 

She is finally reunited with her late husband Antonio Sacco who predeceased her August 17, 2016. Loving mother of Teresa Sacco, Gisella Bennett (Jason) and Antonio Sacco (Heather). Grandmother of Cassandra Hyde (Stephen), Daniel Sargent (fiancée Meteisha and son, Louis), Connor, Ashlee and Allison Bennett, Natalie and Julia Sacco. Great grandmother of Elena and Kiara Hyde. 

From the moment she stepped foot in Canada in February 1957, she immediately established herself as a hardworking individual taking on many roles to provide for her family. She was a powerhouse of a woman, balancing the maintenance of a home and the needs of her children without missing a day of work; she was a pillar of strength for her family. Between her husband and herself, they created a life and legacy that lives on today through their children, and generations to come. Maria had a passion for gardening and a deep love for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren; family was everything to her.
