Mariana de Sousa Faria da Silva

Born in Bretanha, Ponta Delgada, S. Miguel (Azores)
passed away peacefully on March 11, 2018
at Mount St. Joseph’s Hospital in Vancouver, BC
at the age of 90. Predeceased by her husband, Manuel,
9 brothers & sisters. She is survived by her son, Jack (Luisa),
grandsons, Jordan, Marcus & Evan. Mariana immigrated to
Vancouver, B.C. in 1957 as a newlywed to begin a new life
with her husband. They were one of the first Portuguese
couples to immigrate to the West Coast to peruse their dreams.
She worked at Mount St. Joseph’s Hospital as a seamstress
for 25 years & had many fond memories of her time there.
She was hard working & dedicated to her job. She then went
on to work as a caregiver to Joanna & Sasha for about 15 years
& to say that these were her most amazing & fulfilling years
would be an understatement. Mariana was a loving wife, mother,
grandmother, godmother, aunt & friend. She so loved her grandsons
& always looked so forward to seeing them. She will be lovingly
remembered by her family & friends. All will miss her quick wit,
sense of humor, loud laugh & amazing cooking & baking. Prayers
will be said 10:00a.m. at Our Lady of Fatima Parish 1423 East 13th
Ave., Vancouver, B.C. followed by Mass of Christian Burial at
10:30a.m. Interment to follow at Ocean View Burial Park
