Obituary for Maria Putzer

Maria Putzer
Peacefully on Monday morning at the Milton District Hospital, Maria took her leave with her beloved son, William at her side. She was preceded by her husband John on Christmas day 2015. Maria left behind her daughter, Heidi, her son William, her son-in-law Leno Mori and great grandchildren, Owen and Connor Mori. Vivacious, talented and beautiful Maria caught John’s eye in 1939. They were married February 23, 1952 and sailed for Halifax arriving March 6, 1952. They then boarded the train for Toronto. The following spring, they started John H. Putzer Limited, which went on to specialize in large scale landscape construction projects. Alongside it, M. Putzer Hornby Nursery Ltd. grew quality landscape plants. For many nurserymen, visits to the farm included joining the family at Maria’s table. She became famous for her hospitality, her hearty meals and great coffee. Maria faced life’s challenges with grace and perservance having lost her sight to Retinosa Pigmentosa in her prime. Maria was an inspiration to our family and we will miss her greatly.

Family and friends are invited to visit at the McKERSIE- KOCHER FUNERAL HOME, 114 Main St. East, Milton (905) 878-4452 on Thursday, November 30, 2017 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 139 Martin St., Milton on Friday, December 1, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. Interment will follow at Evergreen Cemetery, Milton. Should family and friends so desire, donations to Food for Life in memory of Maria, or to the charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.
