Ilda da Costa

Mom, Vavo, GG passed away peacefully with her family by her side.
She is survived by her daughters Maria (Jim), Natalie (Dieter), Margaret (Kelly), Betty (Rob); grandchildren Jason, Corinne, Sean, Joshua, Kara, Stephanie, Dustin, Kyle, Kaitlyn and their spouses; great-grandchildren Mikayla, Isla, Claire, Robert, Caroline, Rowen, Julia, Elowen and Madison.
Fondly remembered for her dedication to God, the church and her family, for her great sense of humour and her incredible love for life.
Our mother will forever be remembered affectionately as Momma Miranda by her many friends and church family.
The Miranda family would like to thank Dr. Van Schalkwyk, Dr. Kay and the nursing staff at Kitimat General Hospital for their support and compassion to Ilda and our family. We would also like to thank Father Babji, Father MacDonald, Father Pier, Father Rectorino, Father Dominic, Father Terry, Sister Maria, the Catholic Woman’s League of Christ the King Parish and Susana Borges, as well as everyone’s prayers, kind words and acts of kindness through this difficult time.
Ilda joins her husband Jose and her son Jose Luis who have been called into God’s loving embrace.
