Maria was born on June 8, 1934 to Marcos Holguin and Simona Marroquin. She was born in Chihuahua, Mexico, but lived in Utah the last 28 years with her children.

Maria had a beautiful heart that loved everyone and always showed kindness to her family and friends. She enjoyed knitting, sewing and watching Mexican soap operas. She enjoyed her grandchildren’s soccer tournaments and was always there cheering them on. She was a member of the Catholic Church.
