Maie Hiroko Dustin passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 1, 2009 at home after a long, hard-fought battle with scleroderma.

Maie Noda was born July 6, 1944 in Lethbridge, AB and grew up in the Rosemary, Duchess, and Bassano area. She had a long career as a highly respected elementary school teacher in the Calgary public school system. Maie truly loved her family very much and derived special joy from her grandchildren.

Maie is survived by her husband Grant of 42 years, sons Ryan and Cameron, daughters-in-law Margo and Jill, and grandchildren Maya, Owen, Marcus, and Natalie. She is also survived by her mother, sisters, brothers, and many nieces and nephews.

A private family service will be held at a later date. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire donations in Maie’s memory may be made to the Scleroderma Society of Canada, www.scleroderma.ca, or care of 1240 Tara Drive, Ottawa, ON, K2C 2H5.

    Our deepest condolences to all the family members in particular Grant, Ryan & Cameron along with their families. I know the grandchildren were the apple of Maie’s eye & gave her great pleasures when she was visiting or they were visiting here in Calgary. It is sadness when someone passes away but remember the pleasure Maie brought to everyone around her along with the joy, happiness & all of the great memories. Maie was a tireless worker for the Scleroderma cause from the local Calgary level all the way through to Canadian Society. May the peace which comes from the memories of love shared, comfort you now and in the days ahead. We will miss you Maie
