PAVILIONIS, Marija Milda - (May 29, 1932 - September 18, 2020) - Our dear beautiful mom passed this evening.
She was full of life and music. She had the voice of a nightingale and the heart of an angel. As a single mom she never had it easy, but remained very strong and optimistic until the day she passed.
Even though she had dementia in the latter part of her life, she never forgot to admire the beauty of nature and would remind us to always remember to stop and look around at God's creations.
She had quite the sense of humour too and always put a smile on peoples' faces. She never forgot to tell everyone passing by or in the nursing home how beautiful or handsome they are and "I love you."
We can't even imagine that she is gone, but is in our heart and soul forever after.
Peacefully at Labdara Nursing Home on Friday, September 18th, 2020.
Marija, loving mom of Ramona, Irena and Audra Pavilionis. She is survived by her brother Bijunas Brakas, sisters Lenute Mitchell and Asta Ziobakas.
Marija was predeceased by her brothers Adomas, Jonas, Vytas, Antanas Brakas and her sisters Irena Sabaliauskas and Ruta Brakas. Marija was predeceased by her parents Adomas and Elena Brakas (nee Von Jumasevaite).
