Lucia Portelance (née D’Orazio) left this earthly realm with dignity and grace on February 28th, 2021, after her decade-long battle with Posterior Cortical Atrophy. She was 60 years old. It would be wrong to say that Lucy lost her battle because she never stopped fighting. When others would have broken, Lucy’s loving spirit endured. Through her we understand the true face of tenacity, resilience and perseverance. Her insidious disease could never overcome her grace, love and devotion to her family. Daughter of Giovanni and Anna D’Orazio (deceased) Lucy is forever loved by her husband Michael and their sons Daniel, Mitchell, and Neil, daughter-in-law Daniela, grandchildren Sebastian and Juliette, sister Lidia, brothers Eugene (Lynn), Nick and Danny (deceased), relatives and friends.
A private family funeral service will be held in the R.J. Barnard Chapel, Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home, 233 Larch Street, Sudbury, on Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021, at 11:30am. Only family will attend the service; others may view the livestream: at the Civic Memorial Cemetery. Donations, if so desired, can be made to the Alzheimer Society.

My deepest sympathies, Mike and family, I had the pleasure of working with Lucy in Corporate Services for a few years. Her gentle demeanour and soft voice seemed to bring out the same in others. Although most of us are retired now she will always be remembered for her warm smile and quiet laughter. Rest peacefully Lucy.

My deepest condolences for your loss. Lucy was a lovely, sweet person. It's hard to believe she is gone.
God bless her and your family.

Lucia and I became friends when paired in a grade 6 science project... and even though there were times when our lives took us in different directions, we remained friends the rest of our lives. I will always remember her gentle, caring ways, always putting family first... and, in the D'Orazio way, all were family just by walking through the door. Many fun memories come back... the endless days at Antwerp playground and sliding in the 'pit' there as children, to summers at my family's camp in our teens, and later on fun times like Lucy, Lidia and I hiding out in her family bathroom to get some 'girl' time in the night before her wedding. I will cherish all of these.

To Michael, Daniel, Mitchell and Neil, my deepest sympathies, Mama will continue to watch over you. To Eugene, Nicky and Lidia, you know she loved you all fiercely and that love continues.

My friend, you have transitioned to the next level and I am comforted knowing you are now free and at peace. Until we meet again.
