MARIA JDA NEU
Born: May 1st, 1935
Passed on: February 28th, 2013
After a courageous battle with cancer, Oma left us on February 28th, 2013 surrounded by her family.
She is survived by her sons Stephan (Diana) Neu, Ralph (Terry) Neu, her daughter Sonja (Clint) Dempster and the absolute lights of her life, her seven grandchildren: Kirsten (Tony), Toni, Amanda, Chelsey (Matt), Calvin, Derrick and Taylor. She is also survived by her sisters Lilo (Hans) Krauseneck and Bonnie (Bob) Schubel, as well as the Krauseneck, Langner, and Neu families.
She is predeceased by her loving husband Gerhard of 52 years, and her parents Paul and Jda Wurth.
Maria was born in Schopfheim, Germany on May 1, 1935. In 1957 she married the love of her life Gerhard and three years later they moved to British Columbia to begin a new life. They settled in Savona in 1964 where they raised their family and made numerous lifelong friends. Oma will be forever remembered for her cheerful smile, her warm charisma, and her positive outlook on life. Her passions were: family and friends, gardening, knitting, baking, reading and taking daily walks with her beloved dog Dudley.
Oma's greatest joy was her family. They brought her true pride and she put them first and foremost in everything she did. With her selfless ways, Oma taught us the true meaning of love.
Oma will be greatly missed
by all and will remain
forever in our hearts.
