Faustina Perini (87) went to her heavenly home on October 18, 2020. She was born in Fiume, Italy on September 23, 1933 to Renato and Carmella Filippi. She was raised with her older brother Alfio and her three sisters: Renata (Aldo Nesi), Silvana (Mario Bertachini), and Vanda (Lucio Morello).
She immigrated to Canada and subsequently to the USA living in New York, Connecticut, Florida, Maryland and ultimately Tennessee. She built her life around her husband Gino Perini and her children Boris Perini and Ester (Daryl Visser). Her pride and joy are the kids that call her Nonna and Zia. Tina loved life and had a ready laugh, smile, song or saying for every occasion.
Her life will be celebrated at the Elizabethton First Church of the Nazarene on October 31st at 1:00 p.m. Friends are invited to attend and are asked to wear their masks. She was treasured in life and will be missed and remembered until we meet again in heaven.
