It was in 1969 she was introduced to the love of her life Abel Galaviz by her Tio Frank Herrera in Seguin, Texas. They then married on May 5, 1974. One year later she gave birth to her first child Victoria Galaviz and gave birth to her second child Vicente Galaviz in 1980.

I will always remember Maria as my moms best friend for over 45 years. Maria was the “constant” In my moms life, looking back now and being older... I truly honor & respected their friendship. Sometimes as a teen I would think that they were SO opposite and my mom would tell me “it works! Our friendship just works!”
I’m going to miss her voice & the way she said my moms name. I treasure the gifts she made for me & our house. Thank you Abel, Victoria and Vince for sharing your mom with mine! I feel truly blessed to have known her & have her as my moms best friend!
My deepest condolences to you all.

My cousin Maria and I went to school together. I have good memories of the good times we had in high school. She was a lot of fun to be around with, always friendly and not shy at all. I will miss the friendship we shared. May she rest in peace in the hands of our Lord Jesus Christ.
