Maria Cisneros

April 10, 1927 ~ July 17, 2018 (age 91)

Maria Cisneros was born on April 10, 1927 in Vado De Cedillos, Chihuahua, Mexico and passed away, peacefully, at her home in Merced, CA on July 17, 2018. Maria was a loving sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and an avid Giants fan. Maria was a hard worker, having worked many years in the local canneries, and instilled a strong work ethic into her children. She enjoyed sewing, crocheting blankets and scarves for everyone in the family, quilting, watching telenovelas, and daily talk shows. Above all else, Maria enjoyed spending time with her family. She had a huge heart and never stopped thinking about her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Her children were proud to call her Mom and she will be missed dearly by all. She is preceded in death by her parents Miguel Cisneros and Leonora Bojorques, brother Cruz Cisneros, sisters Inocenta Provencio, Ramona Garcia, and Manuela Palacios, and her grandson David Silva. Maria is survived by her sisters Dora Kinchloe (Ron), Teresa Benebente (Fabien), Virginia Steuble (Carl); her brothers David Cisneros (Joanna), Daniel Cisneros (Carmen); children Connie Gabaldon, David Gabaldon, Rosa Gabaldon (Billy), Nellie McGarry (Russell), Martha Zuniga, Linda Dominguez (Gilbert), Mary Alice Silva (Bill); grandchildren Chris Akins, Steven Booker, Arthur Dominguez (Vitzania), Carlos Dominguez, Christina Silva, Michael Garces, Nicole Dominguez (Brian Johnson), Amanda Perez, Daniel Garces (Isabel), Jessica Perez, Nicole Huizar, Chris Ochoa; and 18 great-grandchildren.    All of our love, Mom, we love you to the heavens and back.
