Maria was a devout catholic who loved her church. She enjoyed word puzzles, watching Family Feud, tending to her plants, cooking for her loved ones, styling hair, and helping everyone look and feel beautiful. Her life revolved around her family and her beloved salon customers. Maria, born as Unsun, was small and mighty—always looking to serve others with her generous heart and thoughtful gestures.
