Maestas, Marie R.



Marie R. Maestas (age 67) was embraced by the gentle arms of Our Lord and entered eternal peace on February 23, 2017 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Marie was preceded in death by her parents, Jesus M. & Maria R. Atencio & her beloved husband of 42 years, Arthur, with whom she is now happily reunited.

Marie cherished her family. After lovingly taking care of her sick husband until his death, she always made her daughter and grandson her biggest priority. She delighted in participating in her grandson's school activities and attended all his sports events.

Her unwavering faith in God sustained her during her grueling months of illness. It is this faith that demonstrated her gentle spirit. Marie had a wonderful sense of humor and always was a positive person. Always surrounded by her family, even at her death, Marie is survived by her daughter, Melissa Maestas; her much-adored grandson, Nicholas Mazariegos; sisters, Rena Dragoo (Roger); Margaret Rodriguez (Al) & many special nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

The family would like to thank Dr. Vi Chiu for his kindness and relentless treatment of Marie's illness. We deeply appreciate the impeccable and loving care given to Marie by the compassionate nurses and techs at UNM Cancer Center and UNM Hospital.

A Rosary will be held at Immaculate Conception Church, 619 Copper Ave. NW, Albuquerque, NM on Friday, March 3 at 9:00am followed by a Memorial Mass at 10:00am. The celebrant will be Father Warren Broussard, S.J. The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to ICC at 619 Copper Ave. NW, 87102.
