As well, she leaves her sister Italia and brother Georgio (Julie) and many nieces and nephews in Canada and Italy.

Condolences may be offered to the family below.
Hi Sonia, I’m Barb from our Harbour Towers days together. My husband Peter always had a soft spot for your Mom, from when they worked at The Sherwood Park Inn at the same time.
We are both sorry for your loss. Our condolences to all of your family.
Dear Lili and Sonia,
So many memories, so much laughter, and all the good times.
I know our parents always enjoyed spending time with your mom and dad when they visited here and when our parents went to Victoria. I especially remember way back in the day when our dad was working on the Island and mom, Roger and I spent quite a lot of time hanging around your parents’ house during those summers.
Your mom was always incredibly welcoming, generous, and open hearted. Take solace that she had a well lived life, and was well loved. Much love and condolences to you and your families.
from both Roger and me
Condolences to Egle’s family & friends during this time of loss. Growing up with you, Sonia, I will remember your Mom for her warmth, her sparkly smile, the welcoming home she created with your Dad and, of course, her crostille. May she rest in peace & love.

Hello Sonia and Lili and family. Wishing you all the very best during this difficult time. Our deepest condolences to the loss of your mom and a dear friend to many of us. So many fond memories of your mom and dad. Wish we could be there with you and reflect on her life with a good glass of wine. Hugs to all. Love Daniela and Don.
Dear sister you played a big part of our life, but now that you are gone the love that we still have for you will just go on and on.
Cara sorella quando hai lasciato questa vita terrena il paradiso ha ricevuto un angelo molto speciale ci mancherai a tutti noi ciao
Our condolences to all family and friends. Zia Egle was always very generous and has such a loving family. I especially remember the times “in the VW van”, the PNE and all the meals together. May we all continue with her spirit in mind.
We treasure many fond memories of Zia Egle and keep her in our heart. Deepest condolences to the girls and all the grandchildren.
My late Wife Luwana Daoust (from Hawaii) who passed away in 2021, worked with Egle in the Legislative Dining Room for Many years. To Egle’s Family & friends, please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Egle & Luwana are together once again.

Our deepest condolences to the family
To my Victoria Family – Zia Egle was my most favourite Zia and there are so many things I will miss – her kindness, her outward love for me and my family, her crostolli, how when I hugged her she came just below my chin and much more! She definitely gave life to the saying – “she may be small but she is mighty”. It was so lovely seeing her last year and to get to spend some time with her. Zia, may you rest in peace. Our love and condolences to Lili, Sonia and families xoxox Tanya Terry
