Maier – Christiana
It is with profound sadness that we announce that our loving mother, Christiana Maier, has exited this stage of life on Sunday, January 17, 2016. Born in Bresslau some 92 years ago, she has achieved so much. Her love of ballet led her to become a member of the German National Ballet at the age of 16. Her life’s travels brought her to Canada in the early ’50’s. From there she founded her own ballet school and taught a great many young aspiring students in the art. She took immense pride in her work and was very proud of her students. She leaves behind three sons, John, Michael and Victor. She is predeceased by her husband Alfred and her two sisters, Reisi and Eva. A special thanks to Harold, a late life companion, who provided her with much loving care and comfort. Also many thanks to Dr’s Lewin and Zachem, the CCAC and the Saint Elizabeth Palliative Care team for their efforts in this time. Friends may attend a visitation at the Kars Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 1610 Roger Stevens Dr., Kars
on Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m.
