Maria Giulia Motta
May 11, 1963 - December 26, 2020
Eagle, Idaho - After a fearless stretch with cancer, our dear Maria passed away peacefully in her sleep. She remained positive throughout her illness, sharing her courage and strength with the world around her.
Born in San Francisco, Maria grew up in Walnut Creek, with her loving parents, sister, and two brothers. "Ri," as she was best known, was outgoing and strong with limitless spirit since birth.
Maria received her BS degree from Cal Poly Pomona and began her adult life in Southern CA, working in pharmaceutical sales. She eventually relocated to Idaho, which she loved and where she made a career in motivational coaching and development.
She joins her predeceased father and sister, and says goodbye for now to her mother, two brothers, daughter and grandson, as well as many relatives and loving friends. Ri's presence was immeasurable, and we miss her beyond belief.
Memorial services will be held in Boise this Spring and in Walnut Creek later this Summer.
