Maryann Maida

July 16, 1920 - November 7, 2012


It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our mother,

grandmother and great-grandmother, Maryann Maida on November 7, 2012, at the age

of 92 years. Maryann will be dearly missed by daughters, Catharene (Cathy) (Glenn)

and Rosemary (Dave), grandchildren, Andrew, Dan, Doug, Tammie, Joanne, Melanie,

Allison and Dale, as well as great-grandchildren, Shayla, Sienna, Bree-Anne, Dawson

and Heidi-Rose. Maryann was predeceased by husband, Lou Maida, daughter, Patricia

and son, Barry as well as her siblings.

Maryann was born in Big River, Saskatchewan on July 16, 1920. She was very active

in sports and played hockey for the women’s team and softball for the Saskatoon Pats.

She later moved to BC where she met Lou. They were married at Christina Lake in

1940. Maryann lived in Saskatoon while Lou served in the army overseas. Their eldest

daughter, Cathy was born there. They returned to Christina Lake in 1946. Rosemary

and Patricia were born a few years later. The family moved in 1952 to the mining town

of Riondel where they settled,and Barry was an addition to the family in 1953. Maryann

and Lou loved to spend time on Kootenay Lake boating and fishing with the family. In

recent years, Maryann lived on her own in Grand Forks and had just moved into a new

Independent Living Retirement Home in October. We know that she would want her

friends in Riondel, Nelson and area to know of her passing. At Maryann’s request there

will be no service. The family will have a Celebration of Life at a later date. In lieu of

flowers, those who wish to make a donation in Maryann’s memory may do so to a

charity or organization of their choice. Our loving mother, grandmother and friend may

no longer be with us, but her love and spirit will remain with us always.
