So sorry for your loss. While I never had the opportunity to meet your mother the summary of her life lets the reader know of a strong woman grounded in family values. You must all be proud of the life lived.
Our prayers go out to you and your family.

My deepest sympathy to the Sturos family. I was surprised & saddened to read about Maria’s passing. She was a special member of my Volunteer staff and the Auxiliary at Aspirus Keweenaw Hospital & before that Keweenaw Memorial. She was always so pleasant and had a sweet smile. She will be missed. My thoughts & prayers to you all. 😪🙏🏻
