Death of Maria Tabone, wife of former President Ċensu Tabone

Maria Tabone, wife of former President Ċensu Tabone, has died at the age of 98.

The Nationalist Party said in a statement that the death of Maria Tabone this morning is a loss for Malta, as the country has lost a dignified woman who has given long and unobtrusive service to Malta together with her husband Ċensu Tabone in the country’s highest posts.

Married to a doctor at the height of World War II, Maria Tabone supported her husband in his ophthalmic research, in setting up the Doctors’ Union, in raising their children, and also in his service to Maltese politics at a very turbulent time, and later in the restoration of political normality.

The PN added in the statement that when her husband, after occupying the post of Foreign Minister, was appointed President in 1989, Maria Tabone continued supporting him with dignity and quiet determination.

Meanwhile, in a statement President Marie Louise Coleiro Preca expressed her regret at the demise of Mrs Maria Tabone, and extended her condolences, both personally and on behalf of the Maltese and Gozitans, in a telephone contact with Mrs Tabone’s family.
