  1. Maria-one of the most beloved residents of the North End- so sweet, generous , and kind. She was my boys’ main babysitter back in the day, and they loved her- she entertained them and would always take them out and play football or baseball with them. Never a dull day with Maria! Our family will always have those special memories.

    I will miss seeing her during recess time at SJS when she’d come by with her dog and we have great chats, and above all, laughs!

    You are at peace now, sweet Maria, with your mom and dad. We love you and will never forget
    Our condolences to Ross.

  2. Maria, I’ve known you since you were a little girl. You were one of the most loving and kind person.
    So sad you are gone. Condolences to your husband Ross and your brother Anthony.

  3. Maria… of my oldest & dearest friends ever, what can I possibly say, I am crying so hard as I write this- I just cannot believe you’re gone. I will miss my homecoming dinners with you at Billy Tse (our family tradition !!), I will miss hanging out with you…I will especially miss our cups of coffee & ” family dinners ” that were a staple of my visits back home. Lots of love from Asia & Nikos…their beloved Zia ‘Ria. You are so very much missed, and always will be. Say hello to my friend Rosie…I’ll always cherish our time together..until we meet again. I Love you my friend.

  4. Maria, one of the sweetest dearest people I knew. Always a smile on her face and a kind word. Will always remember the fun we had together at Allison’s get together. You will always be remembered dear one…………….

  5. Maria,
    I will miss you. I will never forget our dinners, coffee hours, poker nights and kid pick-up rides. You were such a kind person and a great friend.. R.I.P. my dear friend I LOVE YOU <3

  6. Maria,

    You were one of the best friends a girl could have growing up. Pimple ball, eras, wiffle ball and all the other fun times we had. You are one special girl and will live in all our hearts forever. Love Caroline and Dolly X0

  7. I have been out of touch with people and happennings in Boston (specifically the North End) for many years as I have long ago moved out of state, only seeing Maria by accident during those rare visits back “home”. I have known Maria during her/our formative years -having grown up in the NorthEnd, hung out, and gone to Saint John’s grade school together. She was always kind to everyone and always willing to stop and have a chat. It’s no surprise that Maria had a special affinity to children and pets -sweet, innocent and loving as she, herself, was. I’ll always remember our childhood birthday parties when her mother hid her b-day cake in the washing machine!!
    Maria say hello to my dad on the other side. Lot’s of love to your family who must surely be missing you.
