Maria was born in Buchanan County, Virginia, on March 17, 1927. She loved singing and playing the guitar, banjo, and other musical instruments. She was most passionate about gospel, bluegrass and country music. Maria enjoyed sewing, knitting blankets, crocheting, and embroidering. She also enjoyed going to the Senior Citizen Center in Levelland. Maria was an excellent cook and specialized in baking pastries and making her homemade biscuits and gravy that were loved by all. Her daughter Edith and son-in-law Randy were honored to have helped care for Maria for the past several years. Maria often said that God had richly blessed her with a long life.

    My condolences to the family of this beautiful and kind hearted lady that I remember so fondly from my youth. She looks so beautiful in this picture and her smile is wonderful.
    Very strange too that she and my mother passed in the same month. I am sure they were tired. I am sure Marie and my Mom will find each other in Heaven.
    Love to the whole family — I have many memories associated with this family.
