Maria was a 1960 graduate of Central Catholic High School and went on to further her education at Bell Business School. She then was employed at Bell Atlantic as a telephone operator. She worked as an administrative partner at Lehigh Valley Hospital for over 38 years before her retirement in 2012. Maria spent time as a First Aid Instructor and then advanced her career as an EMT for volunteer ambulance for 15+ years.

Maria was a woman of strong faith and was a lifelong member of St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church of Whitehall where she was a member of the Altar Rosary Society. She was also a member of the National Centre for Padre Pio in Barto, PA and a member of St. Francis of Assisi in Bethlehem. Above all, Maria was a caring and compassionate woman who adored her family. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother and will be truly missed by all who knew her.
