In memory of

Rosario & Donna Marie Tiano

Peacefully at home, Rosario Tiano passed away on Tuesday, September 12, 2023 at the age of 76 years old. Rosario is reunited in heaven with his cherished wife, Donna Marie Tiano, who passed away on February 3, 2021. Ross and Donna were happily married for 53 years, a union that was a shining example of love, commitment, and warmth. Their passing leaves a void that can never truly be filled, but their legacy of unconditional love and open-hearted hospitality will continue to live on in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to know them.

Ross and Donna leave behind a loving family that they held dear to their hearts. They are survived by their children, Robyn (Dwayne), Michael (Leanne), and Laura. They were proud grandparents to Olivia, Brian, Courtney, Carley, Jessie, Ryan, and Kyle, whose lives were enriched by the love and wisdom Ross and Donna shared.

In addition to their immediate family, Rosario leaves behind two brothers, Attilio (Barbara) and John, and a very special sister-in-law, Rosa Bruno, who was married to Paulo Bruno, Rosario's beloved brother who passed away. Donna is survived by her brother, Fred Andrews, brother-in-law, Keith, nephew, Jay (Carley), and great-nieces, Paige and Jayme. Donna was preceded in death by her sisters, Pat and Diann (Paul).

Rosario retired from his career as a butcher at the remarkable age of 72, a testament to his dedication and strong work ethic. Donna retired from her role as a school bus driver for special needs children after 20 years of service. However, their most enduring legacy is the countless lives they touched through their open doors and open hearts. They welcomed children from all walks of life into their home, providing them with a safe haven filled with love, laughter, and guidance.

Rosario and Donna Tiano will be remembered not only as loving parents, doting grandparents, and devoted siblings but also as pillars of their community. The impact they had on the lives of others will be felt for generations to come. They will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing them, and their memory will forever serve as a beacon of love and generosity.
