Obituary of Maria Otilia da Costa


Feb. 24, 1928 – Dec. 11, 2022

With great sadness we announce the passing of our mother Maria on Sunday, Dec. 11, 2022.

She is lovingly remembered by her son Adelino (Victoria), sister Nalia Faial and also by many other relatives, many nieces, nephews and friends.

She was predeceased by her husband Jose in 2012, son Jose (Joe) Francisco in 2013 and brother Manuel in 2015.

Maria was born in Sao Miguel Azores, Portugal and immigrated to Canada in 1962 with her husband Jose.  Mom worked in a garment factory for 6 years and after her illness became a homemaker.  She was a wonderful person, dedicated, hard working, caring and always willing to help especially her family and others.  She was a woman of courage with a great heart, faith and a precious soul.

Thank you Lord for a wonderful mother.

Rest in peace, descanse en paz.

A special thank you to the staff of St. Joseph’s Residence for their wonderful care.
