Maria Rodriguez died on September 8 of 2022 at the age of 100, just 11 days shy of her 101 birthday.
Maria Rodriguez was born on 19th September 1921 in Yauco, Puerto Rico. She was the daughter of Teresa Santana.
Maria was a soft-spoken woman who inspired everyone to be better. She always had encouraging words to get you through rough times. When she spoke, you always walked away feeling better about yourself. Even though she missed out on the traditional act of going to school and not speaking English her extraordinary cooking skills allowed her to own several homes throughout her life. Her cooking will never be matched by anyone else.
Having been predeceased by her husband Lorenzo Rodriguez and three of her children Antonio, Fredesvinda, and Manuel. She will be greatly missed by her surviving eight children William, Victor, Lorenzo, Antonia, David, Frank, Maria and Milagro. As well as her 26 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren, and 1 great great grandchild.
