MANCANTELLI _ Zabel Elvira 1910 - 2005 MANCANTELLI - Zabel Elvira Mancantelli (nee Dervishian) passed away suddenly in Calgary on Sunday, February 27, 2005 in her 95th year, with her daughter Ann and her son-in-law John by her side. She was born in Constantinople, of Armenian descent. Belle immigrated to Canada with her mother and sister in 1930 following the death of her grandfather, Dr. Haig Baronig Matteossian, a respected physician in Constantinople. In 1934 she married Robert Mancantelli in Toronto. They moved to northern Ontario where her husband began a career as a Metallurgical Engineer working across the Canadian Shield from Kirkland Lake in eastern Ontario to Eldorado in northern Saskatchewan. They lived in fifteen different communities and made many life-long friends. Belle took an active interest in her church. She golfed until her eightieth birthday and was an ardent bridge player. She left her beloved Haileybury, Ontario in 1998 to be with her son and his family in Regina. Later she continued west to be with her Calgary relatives. Her family wishes to express their thanks to Belle's friends at St. Stephen's Church and at Royal Park Retirement Residence for their friendship over the past three years. Belle was predeceased by her husband in 1983. She is survived by her daughter Ann (John) Brownlee of Calgary, her daughter Susan Mancantelli of Haileybury, Ontario and her son Rev. John (Clara) Mancantelli of Billings, Montana. She is also survived by her seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren in whose lives she took such great delight. A Memorial Service will be held at St. Stephen's Anglican Church (1121 - 14 Avenue S.W.) today, March 3, 2005 at 2:00 p.m. with the Rev. Brian E. Pearson, officiating. Flowers gratefully declined and if friends so desire, donations may be made to a charity of choice. In living memory of Belle Mancantelli, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W.
