Fillippa Latella Luvera was born May 13, 1870, in Pallaro, near Reggio, Calabria, Italy, to Consolato and Antonia Latella. She married Nicola Luvera on August 9, 1894. Nicola immigrated to Coleman, Alberta, Canada, in 1901; Fillippa and three children followed in 1909. Nicola's health problems spurred the family to come to Anacortes in 1918. He worked in his son's store, Luvera's Grocery, and the family lived at 2406 24th Street according to the 1937 city directory. Fillippa died in Anacortes in 1966.
