Much loved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Maria lovingly called Noni by all, passed away at home surrounded by love, on Sunday, August 28th,2021 in her 98th year. Noni wanted to live to be 100 so that we could have a huge party and dancing to celebrate and this was proof of her strong spirit and determination. Predeceased by her husband Frank, Noni will always remain in the hearts and memories of her children Anne Urbancic (Andrew O’Handley), Juli Petrasthuk (Ivan), Maggie Bruneau (Rene}, Betty Pacheco (Len Shpeley) and Michael (Judith). Maria and Frank had 15 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren who will carry on their commitment to hard work and the value of family. Our sincerest thanks to Dr. Nasimeh Rahkshani who called and visited regularly above and beyond the call of a family physician and to Fr. Robert Langone who visited and came to dinners when dinners were still normal things to do!
