In Loving Memory of Clementina (nee Comacchio) Furlan, 80 years, passed away April 2nd 2019 peacefully with loving family at her side. Beloved wife of 58 years to Albano Furlan. Loving mother of Carla (Peter), David (Joan) and Robert (Cathy) and cherished Nonna of Andrew (Trisha), Mae Lynn (Rory) and Brenden. Dear daughter of Giuseppe Comacchio and Giovanna (Martinello), both predeceased. Sister to John (Jeannine predeceased), Judy (Roland predeceased) and Linda (Klaus). She will be missed by many nieces and nephews. Clem was actively involved in the creation of Sudbury Branch 42 of the Canadian Diabetic Association and served as second vice-president during its installation. She remained a great supporter to the cause in hope of finding a cure. A devout Roman Catholic, Clem was a long-time parishioner of St. Paul the Apostle Church and for 56 years, an active member of the parish CWL. Clem’s beautiful voice graced the parish choir for many years. A Coniston Lioness and Lion, Clem participated in many fundraisers. She gave generously of her time and energy and helped many families in need in the community. She was a great cook and loved to host family dinners and have everyone enjoy the enormous amount of food that she lovingly prepared. Nobody could beat her polenta and toccio or her risotto. Her culinary finesse was also welcomed at the Club Allegri in Coniston, where on most weekends you would be able to find her in the club’s kitchen cooking for a wedding or some other special occasion. Resting at the Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home, 233 Larch Street, Sudbury. Friends may call from 2-5 and 7-9pm April 5th, 2019.
