elevated aX9Qg After coming to Canada, she expanded her family when she had her daughter Carla and son Gianni. Nothing was more important to Maria than family and friends. Over the years, she enjoyed attending dances with Grazioso at the Famee Furlane, where she celebrated countless holidays and events.

elevated aX9Qg Maria could always be seen with a smile on her face whether she was with her family, preparing incredible meals, spending time with animals or enjoying delicious desserts. When she moved into the Friuli Terrace she spent her days winning games of bingo, getting her hair done, spending time with friends and drinking green beer every St. Patrick’s day. Maria’s talents included remembering everyone’s birthday, making the best crostoli and never leaving any dessert left on her plate.
