Whether you called her Mary, mom, mamo, Marucs, Mary Mom, Maria, tia/ aunt, Nina, or friend she was always there for you! God gave her the gift of sharing which she used to its fullest. Whether she was sharing her time to make Valentine's cookies for each of her nieces and nephews with their name on it, or helping the Charlie's Angels with the dance uniforms she gave freely. She also shared her time in nurturing her grandkids with their homework, dance routines, sports or being their good luck charm at their events. She also inspired and motivated everyone in her fitness classes.
