Auntie Maria was the sweetest lady anyone would be proud to have known. She was the most genuine of genuine people I’ve ever known. She loved chatting one on one and had a great sense of humor. I remember how cute she was when she’d laugh. Some words to describe Auntie...loving, thoughtful, caring, considerate, kind, generous, giving, humble and sweet. Auntie, they threw the mold away when God created you. I will miss you very much. May you Rest In Peace, God knows, you’ve earned your peace.
Love you always Auntie, Johnny Boy.

Auntie Maria was one of the sweetest, kindest, most unselfish people I have ever known. She dedicated her entire life to her beloved husband and son; never putting herself first. Anyone who met her immediately loved her. She was a hard worker, Never asked for anything. She was a true Christian. I will always remember the joy she had in telling me of her life in Tuscany and how she became a member of our family. You will be be missed by all who knew you. May you rest in Peace. Our Love Always, Lori and Kristen
