Sadly missed by loving nieces and nephews. A selfless and generous lady who put others before herself she was always there for her family and friends whether it be a needed hand or a kind word. She was a great source of strength, comfort and guidance. Maria had a unique and optimistic view of life, which helped her overcome adversity with grace and humour. She taught us the value of family, honour, honesty and respect for others. A hard and diligent worker, she ingrained this work ethic in her children. A hospitable lady whose door was open to everyone and always at the ready to put on that pot of coffee and prepare a meal. An excellent cook, she prepared the most delicious meals with the simplest of ingredients. Her grandchildren savoured her homemade gnocchi and lasagna. Maria enjoyed embroidery and creating small sewing projects. The light of her life was her precious grandchildren and great-grandchildren whom she loved dearly. She took great delight and pride in their accomplishments. A lady of great faith, with devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and San Francesco di Paola.
