I have known Maria and worked with her for almost 20 year and it has been an honor. Maria was a beautiful person inside and out and a truly good friend. She was a dedicated teacher, always looking out for what was in the best interest of the preschool children she served. My condolences to all of Maria's family members whom she loved dearly. Maria you will always be missed. Love Bridget Gonzales
My sincere condolence for her children and family. Maria is a beautiful soul which I had the pleasure of knowing. Will always remember her as the sweet person she was. (Lorena E. Santiago - SBCUSD - Preschool Dept.)
My Tia Carmen and Madrina,
I was blessed to have had an upbringing with Carmen in my life and the life of my children. Many cherished and loving memories with her in Boyle Heights as well as San Bernardino. I will miss your smiles and laughter. Always with love, your niece Cristi.
Words can not describe the beautiful life and person that was my aunt Carmen. Many of my childhood memories include her wonderful smile, laugh and good times with coffee. I was privileged to share the majority of my life with her constant presence. Whether we were just playing loteria or running to the casino. She will forever be in my heart and memories. I know that she is heaven smiling down on all of us. We will watch over your family, tia Carmen, just like you always did. I love you so very much and will miss you dearly. - Patita as she so dearly called me.
My name is Socorra Gutierrez and I worked with Maria Acevedo for over 12 years as her Harmon Enrollment Clerk. She was a great Teacher and cared for her students, parents & co workers. We worked as a team when it came to dealing with preschool work. I will miss her dearly and I am sure that her other co workers, students, staff and parents will miss her too. Maria, you are in a better place now and not in pain anymore.
