Maria Louisa “Wies” Wright nee Apledoorn, age 96 of Burlington, passed away peacefully at Rockwood Terrace, Durham, on Sunday, July 5, 2020. Born in de Bilt, Netherlands on September 28, 1923, she moved to Canada in 1947 to marry a Canadian Soldier, Oscar Willis "Bill" Wright.

Thank you to the staff at Rockwood Terrace, Durham, for their wonderful care of Wies, especially as our family could not visit in person due to the pandemic. Your kindness will not be forgotten.

The funeral service our mom was very lovely. Darryl, Tim, and Sarah watched the virtual service with me from our home in Texas. If the border was open, I would have attended mom's funeral in person.
