Obituary of Maria Tabanico Anaya
On Saturday November 6, 2021, at the age of 77, Maria Tabanico Anaya passed away at her home in Tucson, AZ. Born in Cuchiarachi, Sonora, Mexico, hers was a simple yet beautiful life that included raising children, grandchildren, and honoring God with her voice in the Sacred Heart Church choir. She enjoyed watching soccer and her novelas. The best tortillas in the world came hot right off her comal. She had a generous heart and placed others before herself. She is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 50 years, Benjamin Anaya, who I’m sure was there to show her the way.They initially had 4 children: Elizabeth, Samuel, Raul and Adriana. With guardianship of Andrea, they gained a fifth. Because love grows with time, she loved her 9 grandchildren more and 7 great grandchildren even more. Nana was the heart of the family. She was one of 9 children: Juvencia, Mercedes, Enriqueta, Elisa, Victoria, Felipe, Manuel and Francisco; she is survived only by Victoria.
Her grandchildren: Andrea, Amanda, Andrew, Eric, David, Samantha, Reness Nicholas & Clairissa.
Her great grandchildren: Aiselyn, Areil, Marcos, Jasmine, Kingston, Owen & Belle.
Funeral services will be held at Sacred Heart Church on Thursday November 18, at 11:30 AM. She will be laid to rest at Holy Hope cemetery at 12:30 PM.To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Maria Anaya, please visit Tribute Store
