Imperio Liegghio of Sarnia, ON, on November 1, 2022, age 83. Imperio and Gina immigrated to Sarnia from Italy in the early 1960s and subsequently heard the gospel. He was saved through Revelation 3:20 on February 7, 1973. They fellowshipped in the Sarnia assembly and served the Lord faithfully for 50 years. Their home was used for many gospel meetings with the desire to see other family members and neighbors saved. God blessed His Word and all of his immediate family were saved. The Sarnia believers and others were refreshed by their hospitality (2 Timothy 1:16). Many enjoyed Gina’s cooking and felt the warmth of Imperio’s big smile. John Prins, Ivan Poirier and Dennis La Vallee spoke during the funeral service. He is fondly remembered by family and friends from the US, Italy and local regions. Imperio will be missed. May the Lord continue to bless Gina and the family.

She raised five children and three continue in assembly fellowship. She loved serving the elderly saints at Elim Homes for many years, at times cooking and preparing meals. She also loved babysitting children for needy parents. Ardith was extremely well loved and respected in her community. Her last days were spent at Hillcrest LTC in Midland, ON. She is survived by a brother and two sisters. Her son David Potter and Andy Fletcher spoke to a large gathering at the funeral.
