We are heartbroken to share the loss of our beloved mother, sister, wife, and friend. Grazia passed away peacefully at home on May 3, 2024, with her sister by her side, after saying a final good night to both her children.

Grazia was born in the Province of Venice in Italy on September 9, 1939. She grew up in a loving, close knit family and was educated at the University of Bologna. She met her husband, Derek Wood, when she was completing her studies in England. They came to Canada in the late sixties and then started a family and decided to make Antigonish their home, making many wonderful friends and strong connections here.

Grazia was a member of the faculty at St. Francis Xavier University until her retirement, and she always held a special place in her heart for her colleagues and the many students that she taught in her Spanish classes over the years, many of whom she stayed connected with.

Grazia leaves behind her son, Marco Wood; her daughter, Lara Wood (Jason Aube); and her beloved grandson, Jack Liam Aube; as well as her dear sister, Maria Iside Bruschi; and her brother, Alberto Bruschi.

Together with the many people whose lives she touched; her family will keep her with us through our happy memories.

Interment has taken place in Grazia’s family plot in Italy.  A visitation for her Nova Scotia friends and colleagues will be held Friday, May 17th in C.L. Curry Funeral Home, 135 College Street, Antigonish, from 2 to 6pm.

In Memoriam, donations to LILT Rovigo, the Italian Cancer Society of which Grazia's family is a strong supporter, or St. Martha's Regional Hospital Ladies Auxiliary.  Online condolences:
