Matilda (Tilda) Fowler peacefully passed away in her 88th year at South Granville Park Lodge in Vancouver on Thursday, June 7th, 2018. Beloved wife of Richard Fowler. Predeceased by her beloved parents Anna and Lajos and her siblings Marika and Louis (Lajos).

Tilda was born in Baja, Hungary in 1931 and came to Canada as a refuge in 1956 with her first husband Matyas Maros. She made life-long friends during her year in the refugee camp, after which she worked multiple jobs saving money to buy properties in Vancouver.

Richard and Matilda's relationship began in 1976 (late 70's) and they officially married in 1996 in Hawaii where they often vacationed. Long term residents of English Bay, living in the same building for 40+ years, their neighbours gave them unending friendship, support and kindness.

Friends are invited to the family residence to celebrate Tilda's life on Friday, June 15th from 5-7p.m. For directions please email: Chris Bulowski at [email protected]
