She has 9 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. Her and her husband lived in Redondo Beach where they raised their children. Her nieces and nephews called her "ChaCha". She was also a business owner of MTM Enterprises, Inc. where she manufactured promotional jackets for Armour, Toyota and Datsun in 1974 until she retired to enjoy and raise her grandchildren. Maria was gifted at everything she did and everyone loved her. She was fierce, fiery, and a force to be reckoned with. Standing at 5' 1, she was a beautiful, ageless woman. She had endless faith and was a true renaissance woman who broke through many barriers not only as a Mexcian-American but as a successful woman. She was a lover of nature, animals and was passionate about her children. She seized every opportunity and always dreamed big. Please sign the guestbook
