Maria and her family were forced to leave the region during WWII and settled in Rottenmann, Austria. Maria, her sister and two brothers came to America in early 1950’s and settled in Cleveland Ohio, where she met her husband Joe. They married in 1954 and raised their family in South Euclid, moving to Strongsville in 1975. Maria was a trained surgical nurse and worked at the Cleveland Clinic until the arrival of their first child, Susan. She stayed home raising their three children and was very active in the family owned businesses. She was a long time member of The Ladies Auxillary of the EOUV Club, an Austrian social club in Novelty, Ohio. Music and singing were a passion of hers and part of her identity.
