She spent a lot of time under the sun ensuring that her award-winning native / tropical gardens flourished, also spending time creating some of her one-of-a-kind art pieces. She loved her little doggies, Lucinda (Lucy Brown) and Lolita (Lola) with all of her heart, and the hundreds of kiskadees in the trees. Mary Maude was always the life of the party... with her infectious laugh she would brighten any room she walked into. She had a big heart and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. She touched many people's lives in her travels through Mexico. She would bring the necessities like clothing, toothbrushes toothpaste, and toys to the children there. Also, donating time and money to help many local Indian families throughout Mexico. She was well known for her love of the Arts such as theater, native art, and Antiques. Often being asked to display pieces of her collections in exhibits at McAllen International Museum. She loved vintage clothing. Being the queen of ropa usada, she was able to spot a vintage Hawaiian shirt from across a warehouse full of giant piles of clothes. She, like her mother, loved all of Nature's creatures. She loved and was loved by many. For the last several years, she spent many weekends with childhood friends playing Dominoes and dancing they night away to the sounds of the Retro Rockers. She was one of the coolest, most creative, and fun loving people in our lives. Mary Maude is and will always be missed. We love you Mama.
