RUNFOLA, Dora O. (Pirocchi)

RUNFOLA - Dora O. (nee Pirocchi)
February 11, 2018. Beloved wife of the late Ross L. Runfola; devoted mother of Mary Lisa (John) Godert and Paula (Elias) Sarraf; adored grandmother of Ross, Nicholas, and Matthew Sarraf, Jacob and Marisa Godert; loving sister of Marie (late Werner) Hahn of Burlington, Ontario and the late Rita (Paolo) Greco of Toronto, Ontario; also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. Born in Teramo, Italy, Dora moved to Stratford, Ontario with her family when she was five years old. After practicing as a registered nurse in London, Ontario, she became a flight attendant with Air Canada because of her love of travel. On a flight to Montreal, she met a passenger, Ross Runfola. After a whirlwind romance, they were married and enjoyed a blessed marriage of 53 years. Dora's greatest joy in life was her family and being such a proud Nana to her five grandchildren. Family and friends are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial celebrated on Saturday at 10:30 AM at St. Gregory the Great Church, 200 St. Gregory Ct., Williamsville. Please assemble at church. Flowers gratefully declined. Arrangements by Anthony Greco, GRECO FUNERAL HOME. Please share condolences online at
