Maria, also affectionately known as “Petinha”, lived her life dedicated to her family, especially her grandchildren which she poured all her love into.

She was everyone’s mother and everyone’s best friend. She was compassionate, honest, hardworking, dependable, and the glue that kept the family intact. We are comforted in knowing that she can now rest peacefully in heaven, after giving us so much of herself throughout the years. To know her is to love her. Her light will continue to shine through in eternity, within our hearts and beyond.
