Maria (Ramirez) Diaz passed away from this life on May 4, 2018. She was born March 16, 1929 in Waynoka, Oklahoma. She was the daughter of the late Ysaac Ramirez and Ysidra (Martinez) Ramirez. She is survived by her sister Nadine; brothers, Vincent and Lloyd; her eleven children; 24 grandchildren and 26 great grandchildren.

Maria met her late husband, Manuel Diaz, on a train traveling in Mexico. They corresponded while Manuel completed his tours of duty in Korea and were wed in Kansas City on February 9, 1953. She spent most of her adult life as an enthusiastic homemaker sewing school clothes for her daughters, crocheting numerous baby blankets, gardening in the summers and canning for the winters and maintaining order in a household of rambunctious children. She was devoted in her faith, always finding enough quiet time for herself in her daily tasks to say a rosary or novena. She was steadfast in her belief that one day she would shed the toils of life on earth and be reunited with her loved ones in heaven. She will be deeply missed by all that knew her.

I did not get the chance to meet Maria. But I can tell she was a very special caring person through her son Manny. Iam so sorry for your family's loss Manny. A persons life reflects on the way they raised their children. Your mother did a great job by the kind hearted person that you are. She will reflect in you as you go on in life and as she says. She will see you again. Keep the faith and praise the dear lord for such a great Momma. Love ya brother! Thinking of you and your family.
