Maria Correia, 81, of Streetsville, passed away peacefully after a brief illness, with her family constantly by her side, on Monday, August 9, 2021. Beloved wife of the late Octavio. Devoted mother of Walter (Pam), Dean (Janet), and Ana (Catherine). Adored grandmother of Michael, Matthew, and Madeleine.
She was the epitome of grace, class, and kindness. She was a gentle soul that exuded love and warmth and infused all our lives with her compassion. She was the pillar of our family. She encouraged us to be our best. She loved us unconditionally, hugged us tight, and always said ‘I love you.’
Maria loved to cook for family gatherings, kept an immaculate house, and was gifted with a crochet hook. We all own blankets and tablecloths that we will treasure forever.
She loved to travel to be with family. Her travels took her to Portugal, Florida, Texas, California, and Arizona.
She was a life long, devoted fan of General Hospital and Young and The Restless. She was passionate about her gardening. Her flowers were meticulously cared for and bloomed generously for all to enjoy.
We were blessed to have you in our lives Mom, and we will forever carry you in our hearts.
