How can we possibly thank you enough, Marisa, and Istrianet for all you have done for us "old" Istriani and Fiumani who may be very proud Americans, Canadians, Australians and other nationalities and yet still feel the undescribable attachment to that far away land of ours, of our fathers and grandfathers.  May your web site enjoy continued success in 2008.

God bless you.

Sincerely,  Bruno Sinosic

Facciamo sapere a quei Polesani che la conoscevano, che Amalia (Ribarich-Riboni), moglie di Carmelo Perucich  è morta a Melbourne in Australia in Ottobre del 2007, a 96 anni d’età.

Lucida di mente fin all’ultimo, lamentava il dolore della sua lontananza da Pola, da dove mancava fino dagli anni dell’esodo e dove aveva sempre sperato, invano, di eventualmente ritornare e finire la sua vita.

Lei lascia nel dolore nipoti e pronipoti qui in Australia, negli USA ed in Italia. Sfortunatamente di alcuni di questi non conosciamo l’indirizzo e speriamo che abbiano occasione di venire a conoscenza della sua morte tramite questa inserzione.

Noi, suoi nipoti Warren, Laura e Sandra Perucich, salutiamo i ‘muli e mule de Pola' e tutti quelli che le erano amici. Ringraziamo Istrianet se ci concederà questo spazio.

Obituary annoucement; I sadly would like to inform you that our beloved and devoted retired president of 14 years and founder of the ‘Associazione Famiglie Istriane Giuliano-Dalmate di Montreal e dintorni’ “ Giuliana Steffe Pivetta “ passed away this past Tuesday January 8th 2008 at the proud age of 72 years old after a valiant fight with a disease. She was born in Santa Domenica di Albona Istria on February 15th 1935 and immigrated to Canada in 1952. It was an honor to have known this vibrantly colorful active great woman who was intensely dedicated with her husband Angelo at bringing together socially Istrianis and their children displaced from their homeland. My best memory is the feat of hosting the 1995 Raduno in Montreal in the province of Quebec in Canada where Istrianis from all over the world came together. I wish to thank her for the time she spent teaching me and many others about our beautiful Istriani culture and heritage. The funeral services will be held at 14h00 this Saturday January 12th at the St-Leonard Church located at 5525 Jarry est Saint-Leonard (Montreal) near Lacordaire boul. If you have any messages, memories, stories or pictures that you would like to share please send them to me I will transmit them to her family and the club.
