Obituary

Maria Gonzalez left this world on March 12, 2022, due to complications and a long battle with kidney disease.

Maria – or Maria Elena, as she was known to friends – was a beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Though Maria’s health was failing for years, few people knew the extent to which she struggled, and more after the passing of her life partner, Jose Reyes. No matter how sick she was, she was always determined, especially for her family. Through her, we know what  resilience and perseverance looks like because she never quit. Her joy for life and strong spirit kept her pushing through pain. Even Though she’s no longer here, it doesn’t mean she lost her fight.

Maria is survived by her daughters, Farnia, Karla, and Cynthia, her son, Jesus, her granddaughters, Sarita and Addisyn.   






María González dejó este mundo el 12 de marzo de 2022, debido a complicaciones y a una larga batalla contra la enfermedad renal.
María, o María Elena, como la conocían sus amigos, era una amada madre, abuela, hermana, tía y amiga. Aunque la salud de María estuvo fallando durante años, pocas personas sabían hasta qué punto luchaba, y más después del fallecimiento de su compañero de vida, José Reyes. No importaba lo enferma que estuviera, siempre estaba decidida, especialmente por su familia. A través de ella, sabemos cómo es la resiliencia y la perseverancia porque nunca renunció. Su alegría por la vida y su fuerte espíritu la mantuvieron empujando a través del dolor. Aunque ya no esté aquí, eso no significa que haya perdido su pelea.
A María le sobreviven sus hijas, Farnia, Karla y Cynthia, su hijo, Jesús, sus nietas, Sarita y Addisyn.
