The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the Cardiac Critical Care unit at Novant Health Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte North Carolina for the remarkable medical care that was provided to her. We are forever grateful.
Maria was a very loving, kind and gentle woman. She had an infectious laugh, and gave the best hugs. She was a true nurturer. She loved to garden. She also enjoyed a wide variety of music. She loved animals especially her "grandpitts" as she called them. Maria loved her two daughters incredibly. Her pride and joy was her granddaughter Maliyah. She adored her and could go nowhere without sharing how smart and beautiful her granddaughter is. Maria will be missed so very much. There is now such a void in our lives. We do know she is looking down, watching over us. This brings us some comfort. She will forever be in our hearts.
In Loving Memory
