Maria M. Hernandez, a beloved mother, grandmother, and friend, passed away on February 3, 2024, in Seguin, Texas. Born on May 29, 1937, Maria lived a life filled with love and devotion to her family.

Maria's career was an important part of her life. For 35 years, she worked diligently for Motorola Inc., making significant contributions to the company's success. Her dedication and hard work were widely recognized by her colleagues. Outside of her professional life, Maria found solace and happiness in her faith. As a faithful member of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, she drew strength from her spiritual beliefs. Her commitment to her religious community brought her immense joy and peace. Family gatherings were especially cherished by Maria. Sunday afternoons spent with her grandchildren were a highlight of her week.

One of Maria's greatest joys in life was her family. Her proudest accomplishments revolved around her  grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Their presence in her life brought immeasurable happiness and fulfillment. She leaves behind a lasting impact on them, instilling the values of love, compassion, and perseverance. In addition to her professional accomplishments and devotion to family, Maria had an endearing hobby. She had a knack for finding treasures in thrift stores and garage sales. Her excitement about discovering hidden gems was contagious, and she delighted in sharing her finds with others.
