Shocked and saddened at the loss of one of the lovliest, sweetest ladies I've ever known. A dear cousin who Joe and I will miss. Her outer beauty was only surpassed by her inner beauty. Our sincere sympathy to Ralph and all the kids and grandkids.

Maria was one of our first friends at Concordia. Through the years past 13 years we had grown to become extended family. We can't count the numerous time that Maria has had us over for a fabulous dinner and an evening of fun. Maria was extremely generous and thoughtful...never forgot a birthday or anniversary. For a little lady ... she had a big heart.
She will always be in our thoughts, hearts and prayers.
Our sincere condolences to the entire Cretaro family
