Mario Aristides LIBERONA
Mario Aristides Liberona Silva was born on August 16, 1940, and passed away on June 16, 2022 surrounded by family at the tender age of 81 years old. Mario was born in Valparaiso, Chile to Maria Enriqueta Silva Voelecker and Carlos Roberto Liberona Mardones and was the eldest of seven children. Mario is survived by his wife of 59 years, Juana Berta, and their 5 children: Mario Jr. (Cecilia), Viviana (Eddie), Myriam (Jeff), Veronica (Marcelo) and Juan Carlos (Paola) and 13 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.
In order to provide a better life for his family, Mario worked as a crane operator and later opened his own tailoring business in Edmonton until retirement. Throughout the years, Mario filled his family with love, instilled unity among everyone and took his family on adventures. He was actively involved and highly respected for his work of solidarity in the Chilean community. Mario infected us with his joy and never hesitated to share a warm word of comfort to a friend or compatriot who was adjusting to a new life in Canada.
We will always be proud of the man, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, and loyal friend we were blessed to have in our lives. Mario has touched the lives of many and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
