I was so sorry to hear about Maria, she was an amazing person. I will cherish my memories of Phil and I hanging out with Maria at Reilly's, we had many good times together. I'm sure Phil and Maria are hanging out together now. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Always a lovely vision in purple. You touched many lives and will be dearly missed. Love and prayers to your family. Rest in peace, Dr. Devens.
I am grateful to have known and worked with Maria for 8 years at UIC. She was a true friend and colleague and always exemplified utmost professionalism, kindness and a commitment to her work. She was a true advocate for women's health; she was deeply committed to supporting and teaching family medicine residents. I am lucky to have learned so much from Maria.
Maria meant so much to us that it's impossible to convey her energy, enthusiasm, drive and strength in words. She didn't retrain her passions: alternative 80's music, opera, baroque, running, ice skating, dinners with friends, travel, her profession (she said she knew what she wanted to be when she was in high school), helping others achieve more, lending a sympathetic ear, spending time with her family, expressing herself through the fun of purple, and being joyful. She was called away from us too soon. And we will never stop missing her.
