Terenta - Sabotin


May 17, 1929 – May 10, 2020

It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother (stara mama), and great-grandmother (mamca). Marija was born in a beautiful village, Gancani, Slovenia.

In 1959, Marija with her three children arrived in Montreal to join her husband, Ivan, who left Slovenia as a political refugee. Marija was an active member of St. Vladimir Slovenian Parish and Bishop Baraga society. She was always willing to help out, working in the kitchen or making noodles for special events. She also enjoyed singing in the church choir. Marija is survived and will be missed by her children Mary (Russel), Ivan (Anna), Vera (Milivoj); grandchildren Sean (Amanda), Tania (Anthony), Steven (Chrissy), Daniel, Seana (Brad), Natalie (Martin) and Mark (Amanda); great-grandchildren Alexa, Ewan, Vanessa, Preston, Gavin, Owen, Alex and Victoria She will also be missed by her niece Dragica (Jozef) and friends in Montreal; her sister Milica and her nieces, nephews, in-laws and friends in Slovenia. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Ivan (1973); granddaughter, Mary-Noel; and her brother, Anton.

Thank you to the friends who showed their support and love.

A special thank you to Rev. F. Letonja for the visits and spiritual support, as well as the many visits and kindness from friends and extended family throughout her stay at the long term care assisted living (Vivalis). The family would like to express its deepest gratitude to the amazing staff at Vivalis and the Lakeshore General Hospital who were involved in Marija’s care.

If so desired, memorial donations may be made in Marija's name to St. Vladimir Slovenian Parish.

Due to the recent Covid restrictions, a private service will be held for immediate family only on Saturday, May 16, 2020.

Announcements will be made for a public memorial to be held at a later date. To express condolences to the family, please visit: j.a.guilbault@videotron.ca
