Maria Gabriella Torma
Maria Torma, 89, of Forest Dale Home, Riverside-Albert passed away peacefully on May 11th, 2017 at the home.
Maria was born in Budapest, Hungary on January 28th, 1928. The daughter of (father) Belma Torma and (mother) Sutha Maria. 
Maria and her husband Joseph Szoke were married October 17th, 1950 and came to Canada in 1957.  Maria spent most of her adult life with Eric, Gayle and Rachael Steeves and their extended family. Maria has no living relatives.  For the past 12 years has been a resident of Forest Dale Home and the staff became "her girls".  She will be remembered for her flamboyant ways, she loved makeup and jewelry. Maria's kindness to animals and her love of beauty will always be remembered.  Maria loved music and the royal family.  She was infatuated with Frank Sinatra and loved his song" I Did It My Way", this is how Maria lived her life-She definitely did it her way.  Her last birthday was very special, Gayle put it on social media and Maria got over 100 cards, flowers and gifts she felt like royalty and was so happy.  These are the times we will cherish, she is now at peace flying with the butterflies. 
"Spread your wings and Fly Free".
She will be deeply missed by Gayle & Rachael Steeves and by everyone she knew at Forest Dale Home. 
There will be a Graveside Service at Bayview Cemetery, Harvey, Albert County on May 17th, 2017 at 11:00am with Rev. Barbara Haire-Jubb officiating.  After the service a reception will follow at the home of Audrey and Jim Campbell, 156 Water Street, Riverside-Albert, NB.
