Boating was a passion for Maria, whether on Lake Winnisquam in New Hampshire or fishing in the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. She often visited the Atlantic Ocean, listening to the waves roll onto the beach. Enjoying her retirement in New England, she loved finding deals while she shopped and trying local restaurants with her family, especially seafood. She loved being surrounded by her entourage of dogs and spending time with her grandchildren.
