Maria loved her family especially her three grandsons. She was always there to help and would drop anything to help assist in anyway. Maria loved to cook. She hosted every holiday and took pride in everyone leaving full and with too many leftovers. Besides her family, Maria loved her morning walks at the beach especially Anchor Beach. She enjoyed going to the casino, attending the Stormville flea market and watching the New York Yankees.
Maria leaves behind her children, Branimir “Bronco” (Carrie Sanz) Lah, Marsha (Norman) Sheppard, Ladislav “Larry” Lah Jr (Jessica Collazo), Joseph (Shannielle) Antonelli, and Anthony Antonelli; grandchildren, Ethan Lah, Brayden Antonelli, and Dylan Antonelli; four brothers; four sisters; and extended family and friends.
