It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. Flavia Maria Feltracco (née Moro) of Timmins, Ontario passed away peacefully on Saturday, 16 April 2022 after a long illness.
Flavia was predeceased by her beloved son Adelchi Feltracco in 1991. She is survived by her three daughters: Anita Damini, husband Denis of Timmins; Deen Mueller, husband Rainer of Waterloo; and Annamaria Feltracco, husband Paul Winward of Wilsonville. She is also fondly remembered by the father of her children Augusto Feltracco of Barrie.
Flavia is the much loved nonna of Lauren Damini of Timmins, Tallia Damini and husband Brad Vrolyk of Timmins, Michael Damini and fiancée Rachael Bennett of Sudbury, Seth Winward of Kitchener, Dustin Winward (predeceased 1999) and Elias Winward of Wilsonville.

Flavia was born in Castelfranco Veneto, Italy on 26 December 1936. After a childhood marked by poverty and the trauma of war, she emigrated to Canada with her family in 1956, settling in Bradford, Ontario where her family farmed the Holland Marsh. She met Augusto Feltracco, also a recent immigrant from northern Italy. They married in 1958 and settled in Toronto for a short time where the first of their children was born. They moved to Timmins, Ontario in 1960 where Augusto, a bricklayer established his business. Flavia was a homemaker and supported the family business while raising four children. She was an excellent seamstress and cook and she lovingly babysat many children. Her spirit of resilience, drive and tenacity – especially in the face of illness is an inspiration to her family.
