It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of our beautiful mother at the age of 94. Maria Jose was born in Furnas, Sao Miguel, Açores in 1926 and arrived in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1960. She lost her beloved husband Gustavo in 1985. She will be sadly and forever missed by her three children, daughters Maria Manuela (Eric), Margarida (Nick), and son Victor (Kim) and 6 grandchildren, Derek (Rebecca), Jesse, Sebastian, Jordan, Will, and Luke. Prayers and Mass were held by invitation only due to indoor restrictions on October 16, 2020 at Our Lady of Fatima Parish. Many thanks to the staff of Cedars Senior home for keeping her safe during the pandemic, to the Burnaby Hospital staff for their care and support, and to St. James Cottage staff for their love and compassion during her final days. Mom, we love you so much and may you rest in eternal peace.
