On September 16, at around 1:50 early Saturday morning just shy of her 90th Birthday. Our 89-year-old loving, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and Great Great Grandmother was welcomed by the Lord. Maria was surrounded by her adoring family holding and loving her until her last breath. She was surrounded by as much love as she gave. Which I need not say was an overwhelming abundance.
Maria was born on October 8th, 1933. She was welcomed by her late husband Jesus Grijalva, daughter Wilma Calcagno, and grandson Robert James Allgaier. She is survived by her daughters, Lupita Pallanes (Arnold Pallanes), Rosemary Knight, and Ruby Harges (Cordell Harges), and 84 grandchildren.
