Obituary

Maria D. Ramirez, 68, died unexpectedly on January, 28 2021, at her home in Daytona Beach, FL.

Maria was born May 7, 1952, in Brooklyn, NY to Luis and Digna Ramirez. Maria had a heart of gold, and would accomplish anything she set her mind to do. She made an impact everywhere she went, and with everyone she came in contact with.

Maria came to Florida in 2018 with the love her life, Robert, to be closer to her daughter and grandchildren. She looked forward to enjoying her new, custom built home and to retire at Margaritaville in Daytona Beach where she envisioned her “happy place”, her version of paradise.

She worked many years as an RN for NY Methodist Hospital as well as the VA Hospital in Albuquerque NM. She worked as travel nurse in NC before fully enjoying her retirement in September 2018.

Maria and her husband Robert enjoyed 20+ wonderful years together, loving and laughing and making countless memories together.  Maria is survived by her husband of 20 years, Robert, daughter, Lisa, bonus daughters, Nicole and Page, bonus son, Jeremy, grandchildren, Tai, Adriana, Elijah and Sophia, bonus grandchildren, Isabelle, Max, Miles and Cinquay, Sister in, Law Crystal, and sons in laws, Khalid and Jared.

    Maria gave me my first job in the ASU/PACU at the Albuquerue VA. Beyond that she was a dear friend and I absolutely loved her craftiness. I am truly sorry for your loss. Sharon Lewis (Wehner)

    Maria, you were such a great friend. Every time we all got together we had so much fun. You made everyone feel like a part of the family. You inspired me with your creativity, tenacity and warmth. Words just don't convey how much you will be missed. Heaven gained a feisty angel. Much love to you my friend.

    Hey Mom 2,

    We miss you a ton down here. We are thankful for the love you shared and the lessons you taught us. There’s a hole in our hearts here, since you left, and we’ll have to lean on each other to get through. We are all better people for having you in our lives. I can say you were truly amazing and successful in EVERY facet of your life here. I will continue to look skyward for your guidance, and as I go over possible decisions, I’ll hear your voice saying “well what do you wanna do that for” when the worst possible choice comes up. I hope I can be as good a person and a leader that you were and I’ll look through your lessons and your role in our family to try and make that happen. There are days that I feel like this is a dream, that you’ll come back, and everything as I know it will be right again. It’s a wishful hope. We love you, miss you and hope that you’ll help guide us in the right direction

    Khalid

    It's difficult to put into words how much Maria meant to me, to all of us. I will always have in my heart the many happy times we shared going to baseball games, concerts, road trips,oh caliente, pool parties, music and dancing! She welcomed everyone into her heart and home, she knew not a stranger. She made friends with everyone she
    met. Oh, and let me not forget the fur babies she took in, cared for and loved. All these and so many more happy memories I will cherish in my heart forever. Thank you for your love Maria and until we meet again.. Rest in Peace Querida.

    May you fly with the angels and forever be at peace Maria! God needed you in his heavenly realm because you have always been an angel. You were so easy to love, talk to and were such a caring human. You will be missed. ✝️

    Had the pleasure of spending time with Maria last year after many years. We originally met in New York through my sister in law Nancy. You will be greatly missed. May the peace of the Lord be with your family and find comfort in knowing that you are now rejoicing in the presence of our Father in Heaven.

    Maria, you will be missed so very much! You were such a very special person. Always easy to laugh or lend a helping hand. You had a huge heart and loved beyond measure. Your friendship was always treasure and thank you for the great memories I have of you of us working together at the VA in New Mexico you made me feel so welcome and apart of the family. Thank you. I extend my deepest sympathy and sorrow to your wonderful family who love you so much. I pray for your family that God will comfort them as they morn you. May God easy their pain. You might not be here in body with us on this Earth but you will always be in our hearts and memories. Love you always.

    Maria was a beautiful soul. She loved her family and friends and they loved her. She was not afraid to speak her mind and that was one thing I loved about her. The world has lost a beloved person far too soon. I pray that Bob, Lisa and her family, Nicole and her family and all Maria's friends will find comfort in knowing that Maria is in God's hands.

    Where does one start when trying to describe the meaning and the impact that one person has on another? With Maria it's easy. She was smart, beautiful, passionate, not only for women's rights, but human rights. Hard working, nothing was ever handed to her. She worked for it. Had a love for music that you appreciated and envied even, and had the record collection to prove it. Great cook? Absolutely. Great host when you were her guest? Absolutely. She was tough but with a soft edge. Loving mother, loving grandmother, loving friend. Honestly, a great role model for all of us. If only the world was filled with more humans like her we would be in a better place. But, unfortunately we lost her way too soon. She was loved and respected, and for good reason. I will miss her as will all of her friends and family. People like her only come into your life if you're lucky.

    What a tremendous loss we are experiencing by your passing. You were such an amazing mom, wife, and friend to us all. You welcomed me into your heart and always made me feel so welcome in your home. I was always amazed at your ability to do anything you put your mind to! You were the D.I.Y. queen and you taught me so much. We are broken hearted, but will find strength in all of the fun memories we have with you. Thank you for everything you have done for my dad, me, and the kids.❤

    My memories of Maria are filled with fun, smiles, and laughter. She was a dynamo who was ready to hike, bike, ski, dance, and laugh at any time. Her energy was contagious. My time working and playing with Maria are filled with many great memories. She made my life brighter. Prayers of comfort and strength for Bob, Lisa, and all the grandchildren and other family members.

    I always knew how blessed I was to have Maria in my life. I thought I would always have her here to guide me and share her ever abundant love with me. Losing my soulmate is so heart wrenching I can barely stand it. The outpouring of support from all our loved ones has given me the strength to survive. THANK YOU .
