She was a graduate of the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in Whittier, Calif., class of 1998. A gathering of her remembrance for family and friends will be held at The Cup Defenders Hall, 230 Wood St., Bristol on Tuesday, March 19 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.


  1. Maria was my dearest friend from the LA College of Chiropractic. After not being able to reach her, I decided to search on-line. I was hoping an obituary wasn’t going to be found.

    Maria was one of the most kind-hearted people I know and the finest of chiropractors. It saddens me to see an illness which I prayed would be successfully resolved end in the loss of her life. She will forever be missed and hold a special place in the lives of all that have had the pleasure and joy of knowing her.

    We’ll miss you Maria,
