It is with profound sadness that the family of Girolamo Palmegiani announce his passing at the Steadman Community Hospice. Surrounded by his loving family, Girolamo passed away on December 4th, 2019 in his 87th year.

Beloved husband of 67 years to Maria (nee Ferraccioli). Loving and cherished father of Tony Palmegiani and his wife Barbara Palmegiani and Teresa McDonald and her husband John McDonald. Loving and proud Nonno of Andrea Winn (Zane Neily). Predeceased by his beloved grandson Paul James Winn (2015).

Dear brother of the late Maria Lombardi (the late Giuseppe), the late Teresa Rossi (the late Antonio), Maddalena Ferraccioli (the late Biagio), Clotilda Vicano (Loreto), and Savina Toti (the late Angelo). Brother-in-law of Caterina Imola (the late Giovanni), and of the late Assunta Ferraccioli. Dear Zio to many loving nieces and nephews.

Predeceased by parents Angelo and Colomba Palmegiani, parents-in law Giacinto and Margherita Ferraccioli. Girolamo had fond memories of his parents.

Girolamo was born in Pofi, Frosinone Italy on January 3, 1933 and immigrated to Brantford in 1953, with his wife Maria. The two of them worked tirelessly to build a foundation of greatness for their family.

Girolamo was extremely proud of his 36 year tenure at KeepRite as an assembly line foreman. He retired at the age of 60, blessing him with the opportunity to enjoy his true passions. He loved to spend his days in the bush picking asparagus and hunting wild mushrooms. At home, he enjoyed curating his homemade wine, homemade prosciutto, and hot peppers. He was happiest when he was in his garden, and socializing with family and friends. As a founding member, he was passionate and committed to the San Rocco Association, serving as a longtime Trustee.

Girolamo took the most pride in his family. He was a devoted husband, father, and Nonno. His family knew him as the leader. We will hold his memory in our hearts forever.

Friends will be received at the TOLL FUNERAL HOME, 55 Charing Cross Street, Brantford on Sunday, December 8, 2019 from 2-4pm and 6-9pm. Parish prayers on Sunday, December 8, 2019 at 8:00 pm. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Pius X Roman Catholic Church, 9 Waverly Street, Brantford on Monday, December 9, 2019 at 11:00 am. Entombment Our Lady of the Assumption Mausoleum, Holy Cross Cemetery, 620 Governors Rd E. Paris, Ontario.

An enormous thank you to the many healthcare professionals that have cared for Girolamo. Many thanks to the staff at the BGH Cancer Clinic, palliative outreach, and the Stedman Community Hospice.

In memory of Girolamo, donations may be made to Brantford General Hospital (Cancer Clinic) and the Stedman Community Hospice.

To the Palmegiani Family and my colleague Teresa McDonald. We are so sorry for your loss; losing a parent is never easy - we get so used to seeing them around that a lot of times their absence create a vacuum in our lives. As I offer my condolences to you all, please also be strong to carry on with his fond memories in you!

To the Palmegiani Family,

We are so sorry for your loss. I have such great memories from my childhood of all the visits we made to Brantford. I learned so many life lessons from the Palmegiani family as they were like another set of parents to me and Tony and Teresa were like my adopted older siblings. We spent many weekends at the Palmegiani homestead, especially in the summer time and right around the Festival of San Rocco. I will never forget all the Sunday mornings spent around the kitchen table, enjoying Tim Hortons donuts that Zio Girolamo had just picked up. This was a special treat because we didn’t have a Timmies in Leamington at the time yet. He became my sponsor at Confirmation later and was always a great role model to me throughout the years. I will always cherish the many conversations we had.

On behalf of the whole Gori Family, please accept our sincerest condolences and may our prayers comfort you during this difficult time.

The Giovanni Ligori family
