Obituary of Maria Bibiana Coutinho
COUTINHO, Maria: With deep sorrow and grieving hearts, the family of Maria Coutinho announce her peaceful passing away May 30 2020, while on the road to recovery. Born and raised Goan Catholic, she had a passion for travel and was quick to overcome language barriers, making friends wherever she went. Maria began her career in a travel agency where she met her soulmate Lawrie which began a lifelong romance of 45 years. She moved on to Canada in 1997. Maria enjoyed music and it brought her great joy to play the guitar, church organ, and worship in song during mass and other services. She loved dancing and became an amazing dance teacher. Many were inspired and learned from her natural ability to move to any beat. Her family meant everything to her. She wanted only the best for them and did everything to make it happen. Her deep faith, love for God, love for her husband and son, saw her through hard times. Always warm, smiling and friendly, Maria will be fondly remembered by her beloved, and caring husband Lawrie, loving son Rosano, mother Rita, father Andrew (late), siblings; Fr Christopher, Stan & Blossom, Mary & Jonas, Joseph & Bhenie, Annie, Tessie, nieces/nephews; Randolph & Samantha, Faye, Joben, Joanna, Ross & Angela, Samantha, Benito, Stefano & Yulette and grand-niece Katie.
