Maria Gil

November 12, 1921 - May 8, 2015

Tribute

On May 8, 2015, Mrs. Maria P. Gil of Oliver passed away peacefully at McKinney Place at the age of 93 years.

She was predeceased by her husband Joaquim Gil; father Francisco Pires; mother Rosalia Da Trindade; brothers Alfredo Pires, Joaquim Pires, Jose Pires and Antonio Pires and her sisters Maria Do Céu Pires and Ana De Jesus Pires.

Maria will forever be fondly remembered by her son Joaquim Gil (Socorro) and daughter Maria Morais (Manuel); grandchildren Anabela (George) Goncalves, Claudia (Dean) Demchuk, Paulo (Sofia) Gil and Lara (Paulo) Dantas and great-grandchildren Bryan and Brandon Demchuk, Carolina and Beatriz Dantas and Miguel, Duarte and João Gil.

Maria was born in São Martinho, Beira Baixa, Portugal on November 12, 1921. She immigrated to Mozambique, Africa to seek a better lifestyle where we settled for eighteen years and her four grandchildren were born. When the war broke out, we fled back to our mother country Portugal and in 1976, we were sponsored by family Damaso & Etelvina Barroca to Osoyoos. Later they made their home in Oliver until her passing.

Maria loved to work in the orchards, vineyards and her garden where she grew many vegetables, fruit and flowers. She also enjoyed the art of crochet and exchanged many patterns with friends and family.

Visitation will be held from 9:30 – 10:30 A.M. prior to mass. A funeral mass will be celebrated by Fr. Martin Bettin at 10:30 A.M. Monday May 18, 2015 at Christ the King Catholic Church. Maria will be laid next to her husband following the mass.

The family would like to sincerely thank Dr. Myslek, the staff of McKinney Place, the Sunnybank Day Program, Fr. Martin, the CWL for the reception, Linda for the beautiful music, Nunes-Pottinger Funeral Service and the many friends for the thoughts, prayers, support, visits and food during this difficult time.
