Sera recordada como una mujer sencilla, trabajadora y honesta. Le encantaba que todas sus visitas degustaran de sus comidas. Disfrutaba mucho los paseos, admirando mucho la naturaleza, como las montañas, los parques y los ríos. Le gustaba contar las historias de su niñez y cantar las canciones de su epoca. Nos compartia acera de su noviazco con nuestro papa. Nuestra madre era muy creyente del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús. Una madre que apollaba a sus hijos y se divertia con sus nietos, bisnietos y con cada uno de los miembros de la familia. Siempre estaba junto a su esposo. Fue una mujer quien nos ha dejado mucho enseñaza de amor, de fé y de fortaleza.
Maria Luisa will be remembered as an honest, hard worker. She enjoyed entertaining and prided herself in the typical Salvadorian dishes she served her company. Outings gave her enjoyment and she admired the countryside, the mountains, parks and rivers. Storytelling about her childhood and singing songs of her time period gave her enjoyment. She loved to share with us the courtship she had with her husband. Our mother was a believer in the Sagrado Corazón de Jesús. A mother that encouraged her children, played with her grandchildren, great grandchildren and loved being with all the members of her family. Maria Luisa always by her husband’s side taught us all love, faith, patience and endurance. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
