Note:
According to her British Columbia Death Registration 96-026390 her birth surname was “Weidenbaum”, but according to the entry for her on JOWBR her birth name was “Malka Wajdenbaum”. The difference in surnames is likely due to transliteration, and her forename “Maria” is likely an anglicization of “Malka”.
