Maria was a role model as a female ophthalmologist when I was in the Toronto ophthalmology course in the 1960's. After I finished the course. , she allowed me to work in her office part time on Edward St.. She arranged a surprise bridal shower for me in 1969. I remember her as always kind and beautiful.
We are so sorry for your loss. This has been a sad time for your family and we extend our sincerest condolences.

A wonderful friend, teacher and colleague at SickKids. I first remember Maria as a resident brought to our cottage by my late father Dr Tom. later as 1 of my teachers and for many years a colleague. My best wishes to Jurate, Gintaras and grandchildren. She was a pioneer for women in the field! The world is a lesser place with her passing.

37 years ago on November 4, 1979 our son Christopher was born with damage to his left eye. It was the wonderful medical care provided my Dr. Maria that made the difference to his sight. She had such skill, compassion and humour. May she rest in well deserved peace.
I shall keep your mother in my prayers. Her talents and passion allows me to see perfectly to this day. She and her partner, Dr. Morgan, operated on my eyes in 1963, in 1974 and again in 1977. She was so kind to me and kept me as a patient until I was 35 yrs old. I was losing my eyesight one day and called your Mom and she saw me immediately and diagnosed my Glaucoma. While in her office she called one of her many former students and insisted I get to see her within the hour. I did and still do and today I can still see perfectly because of the wonderful care your mother gave me. May God grant her eternal rest forevermore.
