Maria M Barrios

December 10, 1956February 17, 2021

Maria Margaret Madero-Barrios passed away into paradise on 2/17/2021. She was surrounded by her son and daughters.

Maria was born December 10, 1956 in Barstow California where she spent most of her life. She was a loving Granddaughter, Daughter, Sister, Mother, Aunt, Grandmother, cousin and friend.

She was preceded in death by her Mother Rose Ramos-Pulido, Father Arsenio Madero and her best friend and Sister Lucy Madero.

She is survived by her Son Nick (Angela) Madero, Daughter Michelle (Brian) Barrios, Daughter Amanda (Adam) Hinecker, Granddaughters Alexis, Alyssa, Carmen & Nikki, Grandson Nicholas. Many Aunts, Uncles, Sisters, Brothers and cousins.

Maria was the most selfless, kind hearted, empathetic person you’d ever met. Often going without so she could help others in need. She was a great mother who would do anything for her children and grandchildren.

My sisters and I would often make fun of her when we went to “walmarx” (as she called it) with her, even if she had a short list, we knew we would be in there for a while because she knew so many people and had to talk to them all. Our mother loved people, she loved helping others and she had a huge heart. She taught us all compassion, kindness and patience. Heaven gained another angel when she passed, though she was an angel on earth, she now has her beautiful wings.

Luke 23:43 43 And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”

My mother was the most selfless person. She dedicated her life to raising my sisters and myself and helping anyone she could. She taught me work ethic, kindness, patience (even though I struggle with it). She taught me that nothing would be handed to me and that if I wanted anything I would have to work for it. I will forever be grateful for the mother I had. I love you mom.

I miss you my sister-friend. It will be hard adjusting to life without you. Not getting those phone calls or text messages to check on me and me checking up on you. I'll miss your crazy sense of humor and how you always kept me laughing on those short road trips to Victorville. I'll never forget the tremendous amount of love your mom (Rose) showed me the day we sat on my patio and asked if she could adopt me. My heart actually skipped a beat at that moment. So my sister, I take great comfort knowing you are no longer suffering and I know the God serve knew exactly what He was doing when he closed your eyes and took your breath away. So until we meet again, sweet Peace, sweet Peace be unto you!
Much Love!

My heart hurts knowing that I can’t call my auntie Margaret anymore and listen to her advice, make me feel better when I’m struggling, tell funny stories, gossip about people or just talk about what we’ve done that day. I knew it was always going to feel like it was too soon when she went, but it always seemed like a problem for another year. I never thought it would come now, and it would be as devastating as it has been. She always cared so much, and would do whatever she could to support you and know that you were loved. And I can only hope that she knew how much that meant to all of us, and that we all loved her just as much. I miss her, and I don’t think I’ll ever get past that, but I’m so glad for all the memories I have and she was able to go peacefully.
