Obituary

Our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, Maria Josť Moniz Benevides passed away with her family by her side on March 17, 2018 just shy of 87 years.

She will be lovingly remembered by her daughters: Elsa deSa (Manuel), Fatima Reis (Tony); grandchildren: Vanessa Reis (Matthieu), Mathew and Noah; her sister, Cremilde; brother, Jose Eloi. She will also be dearly missed by staff and friends at the Citadel Care Centre and many family and friends from Edmonton and around the world.

She is predeceased by her loving husband, Josť Benevides; her parents, Josť da Costa Moniz and Rosa Salvador Moniz; sisters, Lidia, Eulalia and Teresa.

Maria will be remembered as a strong willed and loving person who was always praying for the health and success of her daughters and grandchildren. Maria loved flowers and was very proud of her gardens. She was well travelled and lived in Angola, Portugal, and Canada. She was an amazing cook, baker, knitter and always liked a table well set and crispy linens.

The family wishes to send a special Thank You to all family and friends who have been incredibly supportive through this time.

In Loving Memory of
Maria Josť Benevides
(Maiden: Moniz)
