Maria Romito passed away suddenly at Foothills Hospital in Calgary, Alberta on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 at the age of 60 years. Maria was a loving mother, sister and grandmother. She was an exceptional woman, a hard worker and role model. Even though Maria left us early, she did not let go without a fight right until her last breath.

Maria spent the last twenty years working at Costco where she made many lifelong friends. She gave without asking for anything in return. Maria loved cooking for her family and friends, especially during the holidays.

Maria will be greatly missed and will forever be in our thoughts and in our hearts.

Maria is lovingly remembered by her children; Immacolata (Gilles), Theresa (Francis), Vince (Chantal); her grandchildren; Enzo, Fabio, Vincent and Aurelia; her sisters Grace (Rick), Palma (Terry) and many nieces, nephews and others whose lives she touched.

She was predeceased by her father, Vito, her mother Laura, and her stepmom Teresa.

A Celebration of Maria’s life will be held at Foster’s Garden Chapel, 3220 – 4 Street N.W., Calgary, Alberta (across from Queen’s Park Cemetery), on November 4, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.

The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of Cardiac Unit 94 at Foothills Hospital for the excellent care they provided for Maria.

If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to Calgary Health Trust and select “In Memory of Maria Romito”

”Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts and we are never the same“. Maria was one of those people. She always had a smile on her face and a hug ready when you ran into her.
Lunch time visits to Costco will never be the same. I will miss our chats and will miss seeing you at family get togethers.
It was very obvious how much Maria loved her family and how much they loved her. She beamed when she spoke of you all.
Vince, Chantal, Aurelia and all of Maria’s family, we are deeply saddened by Maria’s passing. May you find peace and comfort in your memories.
Rest in peace Maria.
With our love and deepest sympathy.
Anne, Val, Alicia and Megan

I also worked with Maria at Costco for a lot of years. Her smile is what I will remember...and her sense of humor. Saw her not too long ago and we had a few laughs. Thoughts are with her family and friends.

To all of Maria's family, especially Vince, Chantal and Aurellia.

Dave and I are very deeply saddened by Maria's passing. Though we'd only known each other a short while, we formed a special bond sharing in some memorable family moments.
I will always be grateful for her kindness in helping me with a special knitting project for my grand baby and also for the beautiful hat and booties Maria knit for her.
Maria was a very kind and thoughtful person and we will miss her. May she forever rest peacefully!
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all,
Dave Clarke and Mary Corcoran
