She was generous of heart and spirit. She was a devout Catholic all her life. She loved God and truly believed in her faith. She believed in the power of prayer and always had her rosary close by. Her belief in God never waivered especially during the last hours of her life. Maria died on March 16, 2011, at A.V. Hospital surrounded by her loving husband, children, son-in-law Gary and granddaughter Cheyenne. The moment she slipped away into Gods arms was filled with tremendous love. She fought a very courageous short battle with cancer. Her strength was an inspiration. We are forever changed by her death, her memory will live on in our hearts and thoughts. Maria leaves behind many broken hearts, as she truly was loved by many, her sisters in Mexico, her many loving nieces and nephews, her sister friend Quelina, her friend Terri, and the very many people whose lives and hearts she touched.
