Maria went home to be with Jesus.
Born in Portugal, Maria grew up there, and later moved to England where she got a nursing degree and worked as an OR nurse. She came to Canada in 1975, becoming a citizen soon afterwards which gave her great pride. She worked at the Aberhardt hospital for many years and enjoyed friends, traveling, and music. She came to know Jesus as an adult. Maria lived life with much joy, told great stories, and leaves behind friends who miss her dearly. A special thank you to staff and residents at St. Joseph’s Hospital for befriending and caring for her. A Celebration of Life service will be held at Life Church, 4461 – 50 Street, Edmonton, on Wednesday, May 6, 2020 at 11:00 am.
