Maria Nunes Taylor

Diana, Maria’s daughter, emailed me last night:

9/1/1916 - 10/19/2010

Mom passed peacefully this evening just before 9:00 PM.

She had rallied most of last week and we had some fun visits - Carol got to see her awake on Wednesday when she came out. Sunday night she called me - we had a great visit yesterday. But when it is time - it is time.

Funeral arrangements are still being set, so we’ll put up more information as we get it.

For more on Aunt Maria’s life, go to:

In this two part story, Diana writes a loving piece about her mother, complete with pictures.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Diana and her sister, Carol Ann, in this difficult time.

Picture One: Diana and Aunt Maria

Picture Two: Carol and Aunt Maria

Seeing Aunt Maria and Uncle Arnon meant playing with my cousin, Carol Ann, who was closer to my age.

They moved west to Minnesota and I did not see much of them, which is why I have enjoyed hearing from Diana and Carol Ann about their lives, and about Aunt Maria.

I will miss you, Aunt Maria!

I am very sure that Maria is with Doris at this time, giving her a permanent after Arnon washed her hair!! And all the time telling jokes ! this was their pattern! I too missed them after they left but could understand why they had to move! Will hug the girls long distance!
