Eduardo Gabriele Quirico married Maria Pierna Boerio in 1913 before making his way to Kelowna, with his cousin Pasquale Barrera and in-law, Giovachino Lanfranco, in 1914. He established a dairy and mixed farm across from Casorso Road Elementary School. Here Gabriele and Pierina raised daughters Rosa and Mary and son Eduardo. After Gabriele’s sudden passing in 1945 Pierina and her daughters moved to California to join Gabriele’s family. Son Eduardo remained in BC with family members now residing in Alberta.
