Maarit was a long time Bus Driver with Grand River Transit. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, especially her grandsons. She was an outdoors individual who could often be found out for walks, working in the gardens or enjoying the countryside of Finland in the summers.
She is lovingly cherished by her daughter, Heli Isolehto (Stephan Maia) and their children, Leo (5) and Felix (3) Maia, and by her son Mika Isolehto (Veronique Roussel) and by their father, Ahti Isolehto. Dear sister of Jukka Juntunen, Timo Juntunen and by the late Riku Juntunen. Predeceased by her parents, Jenni and Leo Juntunen.
After a brief battle with ALS, it was at her request to donate her body to the University of Western Ontario Research, as her way to help and continue her fight against ALS.
Donations may be made to the ALS Society of Canada as expressions of sympathy.
