My Maria, aged 27, was called home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, May 15, 2014. Maria leaves behind her parents Fred and Colleen Boggiano; her precious siblings whom she loved so much, Nicholas, his fiancé Amanda, Gina, Joshua, Sophia; grandparents, Fred Sr. & Teddi Boggiano, Jack Sr. & Gloria LaPonsie, as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and Maria’s loving companion, Rajah, her cat. Maria was preceded in death by her uncle, Jack LaPonsie Jr. A graduate of Creston High School, Maria will be remembered as an enthusiastic, athletic girl. She was active in many sports, most notably as an All City Softball player. It was an honor to be Maria’s mom and dad. Her family cherished everyday they had with her. Maria’s smile, laughter, compassion, heart of gold, love for God, her family and animals will never be forgotten. We know God is holding you in His arms. Please join the family on Monday, May 19, 2014 at St. Alphonsus Parish (224 Carrier NE, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49505) for visitation at 10am followed by the Mass of Christian Burial at 11am. Interment will follow in Resurrection Cemetery. Please consider a memorial contribution in memory of Maria to God’s Kitchen or The Humane Society.
