Maria lived in Wakefield for the past 40 years and worked as the Office Manager for Kingston Pizza. She was always learning new things, updating her knowledge of technology, and getting back to her creative side she so enjoyed in her youth. Maria loved creating artwork, painting countless canvases for friends and family, attending an array of crafting classes, and creating art for her home. Maria was a phenomenal cook and enjoyed gardening, traveling, baking, playing cards, listening to music, and spending time with friends and family. Maria will lovingly be remembered for her generous heart and joyful spirit. Maria sparked laughter wherever she went, with her great sense of humor and quick wit. More than anything, Maria was always ready to lend a helping hand, and give her time and love unconditionally to all. Friend of Bill W. for 32 years.
