Maria Irene Paluch passed away on July 24,2023 at the age of 73.

Maria is survived by her husband of 50 years, Mark; her daughter, Jessica and husband, Nathaniel; sons, Michael and wife, Kara, and Daniel and wife, Jill; and her five beautiful grandchildren, Alaina, Reese, Adlee, Haiden, and Lucia who were the light of her life.
