numerous nieces, nephews and cousins in Slovenia. She is also survived by

numerous nieces and nephews in the Oevering families.
Maria was predeceased by her parents, Charlie’s parents, two brothers and
two brothers-in-law.
Maria was born in Slovenia January 18, 1943. In 1964 she immigrated to
Canada and lived in Toronto to be near her oldest brother Joe. Several years
later she moved to Brooks where she met Charlie, the love of her life. They
were married in 1981 and moved to Taber in 1997. They were happily married
until she lost her lengthy battle with cancer.
Maria worked several years for the Brooks School District until her
retirement. She loved her church life and her friends were very important to
her but above all she cherished her family. She enjoyed gardening, swimming,
camping and playing tile rummy.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Maria’s name may be made
directly to the Taber and District Hospital Foundation, 4326 – 50 Avenue,
Taber, Alberta T1G 1N9.
The family would like to give special thanks to the doctors and nurses at
the Taber Hospital for their compassion and care. Her warm embraces and the
love she extended to all will be deeply missed.

    I only found out today when I called to talk with Maria. Charlie told me that our dearest Maria was gone. I first met Maria in church in Brooks. We have remained friends though we didnt see each other often. Usually when there were dentist trips to Taber. I will miss her deeply but know that we now have another angel in heaven interceeding dor us. Till we meet again.
