192? - August, 2021

Yes, you read that correctly. As a very young orphan girl in Russia, survivor of concentration camps, and, later, a proud Canadian citizen, Mom's birthdate/year was arbitrarily determined when the camps were liberated.
As she had hoped, Mom was cradled by her two daughters, Terèsa and Michelle, when she passed on the afternoon of Friday, August 27, 2021.
In true Maria fashion, Mom gave us the gift of peaceful and graceful last moments together.

"To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power.
Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow." Maya Angelou

Due to Covid concerns, a service will not be held at this time.
Her life was remarkable.

Condolences may be left on her Tribute wall at

Gilbart Funeral Home, Selkirk
in care of arrangements.
