She is the beloved wife of the late William R.; mother of Gordon (Elaine), Charlotte McNerney and Georgette (John) Mearns; grandmother of Gordon Jr., Gina, Lisa, Maryann, John II, William, the late Joseph and Joellyn; great grandmother of 10.

Maria devoted her life to her religion and prayer. She prayed to the patron saints daily, always seeking health, happiness and safety for her family, friends and those around her. She was a devoted parishioner of St. Lucia Church and was an active member of the Loyal Order of Moose. She had loved to dance and socialize at the lodge. Maria always enjoyed spending time with her family and seeing her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Although her vision, hearing and mobility had declined her spirituality and love of the lord never did. She will truly be missed by all that knew her.

In lieu of flowers, Masses will be appreciated.
