February 15, 1934 – June 22, 2016
it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, partner and friend Maria Rose. Maria died peacefully, surrounded by loved ones in Maple Ridge, BC at 9:45pm on June 22nd, 2016. She was 82 years old. Maria was born in Novi Sad, Yugoslavia on February 15th, 1934. She is survived by her three children Rhea, Eric and Cindy; her grandchildren Saffron and Morgan; her sister Chris and her brother Steve, her close friend Julius, and her nieces and nephews.
We will always remember how she took her tea with lemon instead of milk, loved to pass an afternoon feeding the birds or playing cards, and satisfied everyone’s sweet tooth with her delicious trifle. RIP Maria, you are forever in our hearts. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Reifle Bird Sanctuary.
