MATTEOTTI, SARA MICHELLE
It is with great sadness and also great peace we share with you
the passing of our daughter, our sister, our niece, our cousin,
our granddaughter, our beautiful friend Sara Michelle Matteotti.
Sara passed away on Monday, May 7th, 2012 at the age of 29 years at the end of her long and courageous battle with Life. She now flies free.
Sara was one-of-a-kind, a brilliant gem, an extraordinary soul whose effervescence, compassion, irreverent sense of humour and spirit touched many lives, young and old.
Sara was passionately connected to her family, forevermore bonded to sister Chelsey who was her jewel, her passion, her love, her best bud. A fiercely protective, proudly loyal, and always true daughter and sister.
A deeply gifted artist and musician, dancer and singer,
wonderful and creative cook, lover of gardens and all things natural, she loved all animals, particularly our cat, Misty. She loved and missed her bird, Cola, and cat, Bojaz. Sara had an affinity and a soft spot for older folks, kids, the
She is survived by her mother, Marlene Matkin, father,
John (Jack) Matteotti, sister Chelsey Nicole Matteotti,
grandmother, Louise Bullis, and many, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. She is predeceased by her
grandmother, Eileen Matteotti, grandfather, Henry Matteotti, and grandfather, Bert Baker Matkin.
In lieu of flowers, etc., Sara would want you to plant a
flower, make a wish, help a child, do a random act of
kindness. Sara would also prefer you put your energy into: working towards world peace, eradicating world hunger, erasing racism and the subjugation of women worldwide, stopping the abuse of children and cruelty to animals…
and abolishing tight-fitting clothing everywhere.
The Gathering for Sara will be held on Wednesday, May 16th, 2012 at 1:00 – 4:00 pm at the Laurel Packinghouse on Ellis Street in Kelowna, B.C. All are welcome to attend. Condolences may be sent to the family by
