Braz, Maria Antunes Gaspar

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Maria Antunes Braz announces her peaceful passing on May 28 at the age of 77 years.

Maria is lovingly remembered by her husband of 56 years Luis Braz, her children; Isabel (Kevin Seibert), George Braz, Albertina (Craig Herman), David Braz (Tanya Foran), her grandchildren; Stephanie (Darshan Ragbir), Aiden Lamb, Tyler Lamb, David JR, Ashley(Clayton Whyte), Cassidy Braz, Rachael Braz, Nicholas Braz, William Braz and her great grandchildren; Daxton Lamb and Ada Ragbir.

She was born in Portugal in 1945. She spent her childhood between Portugal and France. She met Luis in France and they married April 1966. They started their family in France before coming to Canada April 1976.

She was a woman of grace and courage, with a stubborn streak that showed up when she set her mind to something. She dedicated her career to Canada packers/maple leaf foods for over 30 years. She loved to bake and cook meals for her family, bringing them together for many memorable family gatherings. She loved to be outside tending to her garden, various animals such as chickens and rabbits and camping with her family. She also loved knitting, especially clothes for her grandchildren. She was a rock of stability and a source of strength for our family.
