It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our beloved Oma. She lived to be 101 years old and was still living on her own.
What a life she led going through war times in the Netherlands and immigrating to Canada through Pier 21 with her husband and three kids. A woman who knew her mind, I am sure she is already telling God which wings she wants.
Maria was predeceased by her husband Theodore (Ted) and is survived by her children
Ted (Pat), Ann (Dick), Coby (Larry), loving grandchildren and cherished great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind longtime friend Kurt Gehring with whom she spent many happy years in Palm Springs.
A private family gathering will be held at a later date.
