For many years, Maria held a part-time job at Great Lakes Naval Base in Illinois. Maria also lovingly held a nanny position in Kenosha. One of Maria’s proudest moments was becoming a United States citizen. Maria devoted her life to being a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She enjoyed gardening and tending her beautiful roses. She was an amazing cook and prepared her delicious Mexican dishes for her family and friends to enjoy. Maria was a strong and vibrant woman who enjoyed singing, dancing, and listening to her favorite music.
