TEIJEIRO, Marta - On Sunday, December 2nd, 2018, Marta Felicia Teijeiro, loving wife to Israel Teijeiro, mother of two children, Isabel and Marisol Teijeiro, grandmother to Andrew and Grace Polack passed away at the age of 76. Marta had a passion for learning and music. She studied to be an accountant at the Universidad de la Republica Uruguay. She was one of the top five students in her country, receiving a scholarship to study in the US for a year and was a multi-linguist who could read and write eight languages. She also loved to sing and play the piano, from the traditional tangos of her youth to the modern music of today, sharing and passing on this love to others. Marta was known for her involvement in the community, founding the local Spanish School to share and celebrate the Hispanic language and culture, culminating in her position as President of the Sudbury Multicultural and Folk Arts Association. She was one of the main event organizers for the annual Canada Day Celebrations at the Sudbury Arena for many years. She was a woman of integrity, who always fought in the face of adversity and who was devoted to her family who were all at her side when she died. Above all, her vivacious and energetic personality will never be forgotten by the many who were fortunate to know her. A day of Celebration of her life will be held on Friday, January 25th commencing with a service at noon at St. Andrew's church followed by a light lunch.
