Maria was born on December 25th, 1965, to Angela (Calzadillas) and Othon Mendoza in Cuauhtemoc, Mexico. She grew up and finished her schooling in the Cuauhtemoc, Mexico area.
In 1982, Maria married the love of her life, Jose Quinonez. They celebrated 39 years together.
Maria’s chosen career path was in housekeeping. In her free time, she enjoyed cooking and hanging out with her family. Maria had a knack for being positive all the time and she could always bring everyone together. She loved going on walks with the grandchildren. She loved her time watching soap operas with her husband. Anytime she would head out she made sure she had her red lip stick on.
Maria and Jose made their way from Mexico to Paonia, Hotchkiss and then to the Cedaredge area in around 2003 and have made Delta County their home. They are members of St Michael’s Catholic Church.
