Ken and Maria enjoyed traveling together and spending time with family and friends. Maria earned an Associates degree in Germany and worked as a hairdresser eventually owning her own salon here in the US.

Our condolences to Michelle, Michael, Kenny. and the entire Fontaine family
Maria was one of the warmest , genuine, most gracious ladies we had the pleasure of knowing. Having the privilege of spending many hours with Ken and Maria and your family at Osbrook Point and many travels, while we worked for Amgraph, were truly top 10 days of our lives! We loved Maria's laugh and sense of humor.
We were always treated with the utmost respect and dignity by Maria and Ken and made to feel like part of your extended family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your loss.

When we think of you, we remember the words of Alfred Tennyson..."If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk through my garden forever"
