Maria Prest

August 14, 1917 - September 19, 2015



Maria Prest

August 14, 1917-September 19, 2015

With our hearts overflowing with Love, Truth, Honesty, Humility, Wisdom, Respect and Courage that we say good-bye for now to our Beautiful Grandmother Maria Prest. Grandma filled us with all the knowledge and teachings to carry on her legacy. Grandma loved Grampa Wilfred the most, more with every breath she took and she loved her two boys (Gordon and Richard) the most. Grandma excelled at all she did in life from her early days playing ladies fastball to raising her two wonderful sons and their families, dancing and singing at all the holiday festivities. Grandma lived her life on her terms and her beauty and personality took over every room she entered, she had style that reflected her personality. We will forever carry on the feasts that you made for us every holiday and every visit, your cabbage rolls, perogies, turkey with special stuffing, glazed ham, and baby cabbages that you made sure all your grandkids ate topped off with those delicious apple pies and the secret butter tarts will bind our family forever.  Grandma filled us with Love, Respect and Courage to be honest with ourselves and others. That laugh, we all will hear your bellowing laugh all our days. We will miss you forever and carry you with us in our hearts and our spirits always. Grandma met all challenges with courage and wisdom , she was predeceased by her husband Wilfred, Son Gordon, Son Richard and Daughter-in-law Donna. Grandma leaves her memory with daughter-in-law Louise, as well as four grandchildren Glen(Janice), Dawn(Wayne), Joe (Helen)and Chesley(Jenny),  twelve great grandchildren, Brittany, Joni, Tristan, Mary, Lil Donna, Lil Chesley, Jade, Lil Joseph, Deidre, Gordon, Chanel, Aubree, and eight great, great grandchildren Chenaya, Delareese, Marshal, Gordon, Miguel, Tyler, Rainalee, Delilah.

We Love You The Most Grandma.
