During WWII when Germany invaded Austria, Maria at the age of 16 along with some of her friends were taken and forced to work in a munitions factory back in Germany.

Two weeks later the factory was bombed by Allied Forces and her friends perished during that bombing. Upon the end of WWII and Allied Occupation of Austria, Maria met her future husband William who was serving in the Army and stationed in Vienna, Austria. They married and she came to the United States and settled in Tinton Falls on a part of William's family farm. Maria worked for Belmar Bra and Girdle for 25 years and then continued working well into her 70's for Abraham and Straus. Maria enjoyed painting pictures, square dancing and traveling with her husband in their earlier years. Maria was an unbelievable cook and baker, also enjoyed preparing many large meals for family and friends. Her passion was spending time with her grandchildren.
