May 27, 1931 – January 31, 2019
On January 31, 2019, aged 87 years, at her home in Toronto after a three year illness endured with courage, patience, humour, and dignity.Maria was the dear wife of Adam (2003) and the cherished mother of Barbara Sibley (Douglas) of Guelph, Kathy Frost (Jan Jurgensen) of Toronto, and the late Nancy Frost (2018) (Leon Damonze) of Toronto. She is survived by her sister Margaret Muehlbacher of Brampton, sister Käthe Christein in Germany, sisters-in-law Eve Schrempf of Hamilton and Kathe Guth in Germany. She is also survived by nephews Willy Muehlbacher (Zingra) of Brampton and Ted Muehlbacher (Diane) of Belwood and their families, niece Audrey Schrempf (Carl Easton) of Hamilton, and extended family in Germany and Hungary. Predeceased by parents Maria and Josef Guth, sister Ilonka Liepkewicz, and brother Josef Guth. Dear friend to Margaret Abram.
Maria lived a full, exciting, and challenging life. She experienced war-torn Europe first hand at 17 as her mother and four younger siblings fled Hungary, crossing the Alps by foot and rail in 1947, to join their father in Germany. She and Adam left behind an uncertain future in Europe for a new start in Canada and settled in Acton where she lived for 65 years. Maria was so proud to be a part of the great mosaic that is Canada. She travelled extensively, visiting family in Europe with her sister Margaret, and exciting places around the world accompanied by her daughters. Some will remember her from the former IGA and Sobeys in the bakery and behind the deli counter. She loved her home, her many friends and neighbours, and the town of Acton. She was a champion gardener, cook, baker, pie maker, seamstress and knitter. Her daughters were everything to Maria. She revelled in their accomplishments, sympathized in their travails and was generous to a fault. She will be profoundly missed.
Maria’s family will receive relatives and friends on Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 1-4 p.m. at the Mackinnon Family Funeral Home, 55 Mill St. E., Acton, ON. If so desired, Maria would have loved if you donated to the ALS Society that provided her so much support in her final illness or the Canadian Red Cross.
