It is with profound sadness that Maria Elizabeth Nilsson’s family says goodbye and announces her passing in Calgary, AB. On December 27, 2021, Maria quietly folded her hands and closed her eyes to join Bjorn – her beloved husband – who left us on December 31st, 2007.
Born on May 21, 1925, in Rockyford AB, Maria is survived by her five children – Lynda, Michael, Ross, Karin and Eldon. She will be lovingly remembered by her eight grandchildren and her many friends. Stories of her remarkable life will be passed down to her ten great-grandchildren.
A mass for Maria will be said at Holy Name Catholic Church and the family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to The Alberta Cancer Foundation. In recognition of the current restrictions regarding gatherings, we will be holding a Celebration of Life for Maria in the spring, when the ground warms and her favourite flowers can be planted.
To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Maria Elizabeth Nilsson, please visit our floral store.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Maria Elizabeth Nilsson May 21 1925 December 27 2021 (age 96)..
