Bambina Ventresca

Its with profonde sadness that we the family of Bambina (Bambi) ( Guglielmi) Ventresca announce her peaceful passing on  October 27th 2021 in her 82nd year.  Loving wife of the late Gelsomino Ventresca.  Cherished mother of Rachele Roversi and David Ventresca (Rita). Beloved grandmother of Erica and Elisa Roversi and Robert and Laura Ventresca.  Dear sister of Frank Guglielmi (Margaret), Tito Guglielmi (Ruth). Bambina will also be greatly missed by her many nieces, nephews and cousins from Canada, USA and Italy.  She was predeceased by her parents Panfilo and Gina (née Leone), brother Tony Guglielmi and sister Angela Di Cesare.

Bambi was happiest when she was cooking for her family with her grandchildren by her side.  Those memories brought her a lot of joy in her later years.  Bambi was a tireless volunteer, as a member of St. Andrew’s Catholic Women League, Casa Dante Lodge/Order of the Sons of Italy.  She was a lifelong bowler and bocce player.  Bambi and Gelso were avid travelers to many wonderful destinations.  They are together now on their final journey. 

The family would like to express much gratitude to all the staff at Woodlands of Sunset for the exceptional care they gave to mom over the past 8 years
