Her sister and bother in law Pat (Vic) Gundrum , two granddaughters Lynne (Chris) and Ryan (Aaron), three great grandchildren Raymond, Mia, and Ari; one great great granddaughter, Quinn Grace and her fur grandbabies; many nieces and nephews, and scouting friends. Maria also leaves behind a very special group of angels at Grandville senior living community (You know who you are).

Maria retired from Tops Food Market at 83. She enjoyed being a girl scout leader and a boy scout council trainer. She also enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, reading and playing poker.

We all have a legacy that we want to leave behind. Marias was this:

She may not have had the best but she never complained and was the first person to give whatever others needed. Her motto was this “ I am not the rabbit, I do not need to be at the head of the line or finish first. I am the turtle, slow and steady. It may take me a little longer but the end response is this; ‘it will all work out in the end ‘ I also made it to the finish line too!”

“Mom I love you with all my heart and soul, give daddy a hug and kiss for me! Win big at the Poker Game. Til we meet again, all my love” -Heidi
