Diodato, Maria Anna  
1940-2015 The world has lost much of its charm because our mother, grandmother, aunt, companion and best friend, Maria Anna Diodato, has moved on to her next great adventure. She was born September 14, 1940 to James Vincent Diodato and Ida Edith Diodato née Verrecchio in Philadelphia, PA. She was an only child but treasured by her parents and many Italian aunts, uncles and cousins. As a young girl, she loved weekends on the Jersey Shores, and later dancing on American Band Stand as a teen. She exceeded in her studies and dreamed of learning French and going to Paris, which she did later with her daughters. She married Delbert Lee Perry and had 4 daughters that are forever grateful to have had a brilliant, intuitive and loving mother. Maria loved her family and kept in close contact with all her grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Maria was famous for her fine Italian cooking, compassion and service she rendered to others. She empowered young women as a Girl Scout leader, a Latter Day Saint's young women's leader, and a board member of the charity Divine Daughters Unite. Maria served her community by feeding the poor through Saint Clare's parish, helping at-risk youth and disadvantaged neighbors as a member of the Agua Dulce Airport Association, the Optimist Club, and the Santa Clarita Chamber of Commerce. Professionally, Maria worked as a teachers' aide in Honby Elementary School working with special needs children, as a small business owner of Copy-It, providing exceptional personalized service even after Kinko's moved to town, and for the last eighteen years managed her eldest daughter's integrative medical practice, Full Circle Family Health, blessing every single patient with hugs and motherly advice. We will miss her big laugh, warm hugs, and constant encouragement to live our lives to the fullest. Maria put her heart and soul into all she believed and will forever be a shining example of faith. Maria passed on July 21, 2015 after thumbing her nose at small bowel carcinoma and enjoying her life 3 times longer than the doctors predicted. None of us are surprised but all are grateful for these last precious months. Maria is survived by her five daughters: Deborah (Steve) Maragopoulos, Kelli (Carl) Parker, Karen Perry, Julie (Scott) Monson and Kimberly Ellison; 11 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, and her loving companion, Donald Ellison. She was preceded in death by her parents. Plans for a memorial service in Maria's honor are pending.

Gray, Maxine Inez  
1927 - 2015 Maxine Inez Gray, 87, of Santa Clarita, CA passed away on Wednesday, August 19, 2015. She was born in Drexel, MO on November 4, 1927 to Benjamin and Nellie Alley. Maxine was a devoted housewife and proud mom of 8 children. Maxine married the love of her life, David Alfred Gray, at 16 years old and together they celebrated 71 years of marriage. In 1968 she and her husband moved to Saugus, CA and she had been a resident of Santa Clarita for the past 47 years. Maxine will forever be remembered for her impeccable style and talent. A fashionista at best, she kept the ladies at her church anticipating what outfit she would put together for Sunday service. She was known for her fancy fashion and followed the simple rule of: the more sparkle the better. Maxine also had a beautiful voice and loved singing alongside her twin sister, Corrine. With their movie star good looks and pitch perfect voices, Maxine and her twin sister entertained many audiences. Her friends and family will truly miss Maxine. She is survived by her children: Brian, Wayne, Dale and her husband Gary, Gale and her husband Kenny, Kevin and his wife Leanne. She is also survived by 17 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, David, in December of 2014. The funeral will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 27, 2015 at the Village Church, 24802 Alderbrook Dr, Newhall, CA 91321.
