Obituary

Sartoretto, Anita 'Tina' - It is with heavy hearts that the Sartoretto family announces the passing of Anita 'Tina' Sartoretto on October 3, 2020,

Tina was predeceased by her father Gulio Sartoretto, her mother Ida (nee Mercier) Sartoretto and by her brother Gary. Tina is survived by her brother Albert “Bert” (Jeannine) and brother Jeff. She also leaves behind many loving nieces and nephews

In the early years, Tina grew up in Swastika surrounded by many aunts, uncles and cousins. Her teenage years were Snowbird. After graduation from Cobalt High School, Tina continued her path to higher education at Laurentian University. After To further her education, Tina obtained her Master’s degree at Boston University. Tina’s last position in academia was at Boreal College where she was awarded the position of V.P. Academic.

Tina finally retired and moved back to her dear old town of Cobalt where many of her friends still reside. Not one to sit around, Tina ran for office and became the mayor of Cobalt for two terms. Tina was often interviewed by the local radio station CJTT and by CBC. Her love and devotion to the town of Cobalt was apparent in her everyday activities as mayor. During this time she also served on the board of governors at Laurentian University.

Tina’s contribution to education and to society as a whole was remarkable. Those who knew her would tell you of her brilliance, charm and wit, all served up with a big dose of humility. She raised the bar.

Due to the current COVID situation, it is impossible to have a decent, deserving service. The family will be having a celebration of life when restrictions are lifted. We look forward to seeing all of our family and friends. With some luck July or August might work, we will reach out. As an expression of sympathy memorial contributions in Tina's memory can be made to Tina Satoretto Fund at the following link http://www.temiskamingfoundation.ca/Tina.

Dear Sartoretto Family
We are sorry for your loss. May it bring you comfort to know that all of us share your sorrow and are thinking of you. Thank you for sharing Tina with us.
Tina, you are my family’s special “Aunt”, and Deb’s Bestie friend from University. What was special about you? You were a vibrant, intelligent, Scrabble Queen, with a wonderful sense of humour and an infectious laugh. You honoured us when you sang “Amazing Grace” at Mom’s funeral.
After a lifetime of teaching and generously helping students and Sudbury, you moved farther north and made Cobalt and its folks your focus. Lucky Cobalt to get you, and share your time, talents, cooking, friendship, and love. You lived God’s words and sadly, your time on earth has run out.
Your unexpected passing has a special name – ‘sudden death grief syndrome’. Those you loved and those of us who loved you may not have had a chance to say ‘Good-bye’. Our shock and sadness can feel overwhelming. Everyone must comfort and take care of each other. Take time everyone, share stories and memories of our Aunt Tina with anyone who will listen, and share them with her, too. We are sure she is still listening. Good-bye Tina, bye for now.

As a fellow governor on the Board for Laurentian U, I had the honour and pleasure to meet Tina. Tina was thoughtful, passionate and committed to education and the 'North'. Her quick wit and sense of humour was a welcome contribution to all of our meetings and she will be greatly missed. My thoughts go out to all of her family and friends.

OMG, the news of Tina’s passing was received with disbelief! This sweet and adorable human being touched mine and so many other lives. Tina and I met at Laurentian University, first as student colleagues and also as colleagues heavily involved with student governments and activities at Laurentian University. As students we also became very good friends. Our friendship and contact continued over the next few years as she completed her degree at Laurentian and I, after graduating, managed Laurentian’s Student Financial Services and Student Affairs Office.
Tina and I were fortunate enough to continue our contact and friendship as colleagues at Cambrian College. When I left Cambrian College, Tina replaced me as the Registrar and that was a perfect and strategic decision by Cambrian’s administration. Undoubtedly, Tina had the “right stuff” to be an amazing Registrar. When I left Sudbury in 1985 to take up roots in Toronto and new employment opportunities, our career paths severed our contact, but the close friendship remained in a “state of preservation”
My memories of Tina are so vivid! An amazing and authentic human being whose attributes included her smile, humour, laughter, compassion and empathy for others, sensitivity, fearlessness, intelligence, orientation for solutions and incredible life-long friendship. Tina’s magnetic personalty is reflected by the many, many friends she had and will continue to have even after her passing. Indeed, Tina’s passing is a tremendous loss to her family, relatives and to so many friends. She is also a significant loss to places she loved and proudly identified as home, Cobalt, Sudbury and Northern Ontario,

My heart-felt and deep condolences to Tina’s family and relatives. Let’s cherish our memories of this beautiful, outgoing and passionate soul!

Rest in peace dearest Tina,
Roman Woloszczuk

She will always be 'Mayor Tina' to me. My family, friends and I will never forget this amazing lady. It was pretty neat, as we got to know each other, to discover that we had mutual friends throughout time. We always had a connection from day one, even to Rouyn-Noranda. Tina will be missed dearly. My condolences to the family.
