Maria Moro

Maria Moro

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother and nonna, Maria Moro on April 2, 2012 at the age of 93.

Maria was born in San Giorgio della Richinvelda, Italy on May 20, 1918. She immigrated to Canada with her family in 1952, joining her husband Giovanni, who had immigrated to Trail in 1949.

Maria was proud to become a Canadian citizen in 1960. She enjoyed reading, gardening, cooking and loved to have a house full of company. Marie had a soft spot for animals, especially the many birds that were daily visitors in the back yard. We will all miss her generosity and sense of humour. Maria was also a proud member of both the San Martino Club and Sisters of Colombo.

Maria was predeceased by her husband, Giovanni in 1985. She is survived by four children: Guido (Paola), Gabriella (Bob), Lino (Sheila), Lida (Jesse); five grandchildren: Jaret, Derek, Jeff, Jarrod and Brent; and four great-grandchildren: Brooke, Jack, Dean and Owe.

The family would like to thank Doctors Benzer and Dobovicnik and the staff of Kiro Manor and Columbia View Lodge for their loving care.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Monday, April 9, 2012 at 10:30 at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Trail with Father Matthieu Gombo Yange OfmCap, celebrant. Burial will take place at Mountain View Cemetery following the Mass.

Bill Clark of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements.
