Maria Ines (Quiroz) Stuff
It is with great sorrow that we announce our beloved family member Maria Ines (Quiroz) Stuff passed away quietly Thursday, January 21, 2021 of natural causes. Born on January 21, 1942 in Caldera, Panama to the late Marcelino Saudio and Bertilda Quiroz. Native born in Panama and proud of the fact that she was bilingual, she easily settled her family in the USA in 1976.

Maria lived proudly as a full-time homemaker, raising her four children to be strong, confident, independent, and self-sufficient. For the past forty years she has resided in Stone Mountain GA where she enjoyed growing and tending to her many beautiful flowers surrounding her home. She enjoyed reading, cooking, baking, various arts, and crafts and lived her life with a high level of faith. She enjoyed spending time walking and talking with her closest friends Cheryl Ready, Helen Gresham, and Shirley Gouge. Maria was admired and loved by many. She will be greatly missed. Proverbs 31:10 KJV Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
Remembrance services to be announced.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Atlanta Botanical Garden 1345 Piedmont Avenue, Atlanta, GA 30309.
