Orvieto Elaine Cummins aka McGowan



We are deeply saddened by the passing of our dearest Orvieta.

Loss comes like a swift wind…unannounced and often brutal.

Losing someone is never easy, but we are blessed to have been able to share in her remarkable life.

Her times with us in Malta were deeply memorable, not least for her beauty inside and out, but for the true affection she expressed toward her Malta family.

Orvieta was a cat lover.  When she was here, our white Persian cat was devoted to her as she was to him.  She washed his eyes daily, fed him and he slept with her.  The devotion can’t be measured but it can still be felt.  This devotion was a measure of her tenderness for all of life.

We would like to convey the respect and fondness expressed by the people she touched in Malta whilst she was here….and she touched many. Her animated journey through life inspired us all.

We extend comfort and courage to all her family near and far.  We have faith that Tasha and Kieran will fill her empty physical space with all the love and devotion she showed them throughout her life.

Orvi…..you may be gone from our sight but never from our hearts.  You are and will always be, a unique flower in the garden of life.

“Say not in grief that she is no more…but live in thankfulness that she was”

We will never forget you.

A prayer, a candle, and a flower shining in Malta.
