Maria had a sharp mind and strong body for nearly all of her 97 years. She worked at Star-Kist Foods for more than 13 years, but the focus of her life was her family. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister, who took special delight in her young great-grandchildren. She took great pleasure in sharing whatever she had with her family, and most loved having them gathered around her. The family would like to give special thanks to caretakers Ivanka Mladenovic and Milena Lukic, and to Nancy Kaliterna and Carol Andrade from Kaiser hospice, for their tender care and support. Visitation will be held on Tuesday, January 3rd from 5pm-7pm at McNerney's Mortuary, with rosary prayer service immediately following.
