In earlier years she worked at M.E. Moses store in San Diego, Texas. She later moved to Corpus Christi and was a dedicated employee in the clothing department of downtown F.W. Woolworth for 34 years. After her retirement, she enjoyed creating floral arrangements, centerpieces, ornaments, and other exquisite arts and crafts designs. Her creations will be treasured by her family forever. “Tía María” also always enthusiastically stepped in to care for many of her nieces and nephews whenever she was needed. Her nieces and nephews fondly remember her for her vintage red Chevy Nova, her thoughtful gifts, her sweet supply of candy and gum, her hearty hugs, and her beautiful laugh.
The family extends a special thanks to her friend Tina Tovar for her kindhearted visits and to former provider Nora Hernández.
