Maria Luisa Isla of Glendale, AZ passed away December 28, 2009 at the age of 53. She is survived by her two sons George Isla, Jr and Alexander Isla, their spouses Diane and Rhea respectively, and grandchildren Saige, Jorge, Teage, Joaquin, and Camille Isla. Her siblings include her brothers Ramon, Juan, Toño, Luis, Ruben, and Carlos Balmaceda and sisters Maga Rojas, Lupe Cavazos, and Rosa Duarte. She was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt. Also enduring is her ex-husband of 17 years and father of her two sons, George Isla, Sr. She was a vibrant and giving person. On numerous occasions she opened her home to friends and family in need without question. She contributed to several non-profit organizations and would literally give you the shirt off her back if needed. Maria was an ambitious, hard working woman with a tremendous sense of humor that permeated in the attitudes of those around her. This woman's drive was boundless; in the face of adversity she overcame life's obstacles gracefully, all the while, never compromising the happiness of others for her own. She loved life and held her family and friends close to her heart. Her spirit will continue to live on in everyone she has touched. As a mother and grandmother she is sorely missed and will never be forgotten. The viewing for this truly special woman will be held at Heritage Funeral Chapel, 6830 W. Thunderbird Rd, Peoria, AZ on January 6, 2010 from 6 pm to 8 pm with a Formal Service on January 7, 2010 at 10 am.
