elevated kmG0O Maria lost her hard-fought battle with cancer in the early morning of Saturday July 24th, 2021 in Richmond Hill. Born in Villamaina, Italy in 1940, she ventured to Canada in her mid-teens where she would meet her beloved Ugo. She worked for 40 years with N. Markus Fashions becoming an honourary member of their family. She was a force to be reckoned with and loved life to the fullest. She is predeceased by her soulmate Ugo (2010), her brother Angelo (2020) and will be greatly missed by her two sisters, Palmina (Amadeo, d. 2003) and Tina (Lucio), her loving son Ted (Beth) and daughter Linda (Daniel). She leaves behind four beautiful grandkids whom she was able to watch grow and who will miss her dearly; Julia, Griffin, Justin & Quentin.
