TOLTESI Maria Etelka 1919 - 2006 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Maria Toltesi on Friday, July 28, 2006 at the age of 87 years. Maria was predeceased by her husband John in 2001 and brother Balazs Szabo in the same year. She will be greatly missed by her son John and daughter-in-law Marta; grandchildren, Lisa and Steven and Christopher and Christa; and great-granddaughter Natalie Marie. Maria is also survived by her brothers, Istvan and Illes Szabo, both of Hungary. Maria was born in Csanadapaca, Hungary on March 22, 1919, the eldest and only daughter of four children born to Agnes and Balazs Szabo. She met her future husband, John, when she was sixteen years old and they were married on November 23, 1941. They immigrated to Canada with their eleven year old son, John in 1957. The welfare of her family was always her first priority and her greatest source of joy was her grandchildren and little great-granddaughter. She will be remembered for her strong, quiet faith, her gentleness, her ready smile and her unbounded generosity. Her legacy is a legacy of unselfish love that we will cherish and remember and strive to imitate.
