July 11, 1965 – November 30, 2010
We are sad to announce the passing of Maria Migliarese on November 30, 2010 at the age of 45 years.
Maria was born July 11, 1965 in Trail, B.C. and went on to live in Calgary, AB. She started as a volunteer in the Emergency Dept. at Foothills Hospital and worked her way up to being a clerk on Unit 58. Throughout her life she battled with many health problems, but overcame them all due to her desire to be with her family. Maria always loved going to Las Vegas and Italy and very much enjoyed attending concerts. Her biggest passions were watching Wheel of Fortune and The Young and the Restless. Many of the funniest moments of her life were when she would imitate her brothers dancing. The most important thing to Maria was always her family, she loved spoiling her nieces and nephews and planning family functions. Maria will always be remembered as a generous, caring and loving individual.
Maria is survived by her parents Angelo and Caterina; brothers and sisters-in-law; Francesco and Rosa, John and Connie (Angela, Julia), Saverio and Anna (Alessandra, Domenic), Daniel and Susan (Daniela Mico, Nick), Angelo and Miria (Caterina, Rosa, Alexa), Tony and Traci (Lauren, Kennedy). She is also survived by many Aunts, Uncles and cousins in Canada and Italy. A very special thank you to her Aunt Franca.
