  1. I will miss Maria dearly. Friends for 50 years, the friendship began when we were both working at Kinney Shoe in the office.
    The song Tiny Bubbles will remind me of her the rest of my life!! (We had a blast at the West Fairview firehouse carnivals).
    I am glad she is no longer suffering, but I will miss her.
    Love you always, my friend.
    Rest in peace, Maria

  2. Maria met my brother Ron at Town and Country Dept. Store at Lemoyne Plaza. She worked in the Records/Music Dept.
    Their first date was to the Carlisle Fair. Our mom hid all of Ron’s jeans. It’s your first date and you will dress up, our mom told him. When he picked up Maria, she had jeans on. We have all laughed about this for years.
    Her favorite perfume was Versus Blue Jeans. Our mom was her mom too.
    We dropped the in-law years ago. Maria is my sister, now and forever.
    She is at peace now and not in any pain. Be with your Lady now, Mary Mother of God.
    Love and miss you.❤

  3. If you’re very sad when something is over, it must have been very good. My feelings about my big sister Maria. Always in my heart ♥
