The Mescia family immigrated to Canada in 1958 from Italy. Mike and Antonia chose London, Ontario to begin a new chapter of their life, raising their family. Antonia worked at LacMac throughtout the years until retired. Antonio made sure to keep up the Italian tradition with home-made sauce, pastas, breads and sweets. She was an incredible cook, very well respected by family and friends, Antonia was incredible for her sacrifice in leaving Italy, not knowing English, to allow for her family an opportunity to have a better life and succeeded. Antonia and Michele raised two sons and she was lucky enough to have grandchildren and great-grandchildren added to the family. The family wishes to express their sincere appreciation to Chartwell Long Term Care Residence for the amazing care and friendship Antonia received.
