Maria Blesilda Miranda, 57, had a generous heart. She always gave more than she received, impacting many lives. To Maria, no one was a stranger and no one was left in need. She adored her family and her cats - Yowie, Princess and Kit Kat. She loved to cook, to plant, to craft, and was proud of an over 30 year career at AAA Auto Club. She was a bright light to everyone around. Maria passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, in Tampa, Florida.
Maria was born in Manila, Philippines, grew up in Albany, New York and spent most of her adult life in St. Pete, Florida. She is survived by her mother, Aurora Miranda; six siblings - Vincent, Chris, Vernon, Victor, Belinda and Jr.; eight nieces and nephews - Kal, Isabel, Monica, Lukas, Ella, Raven, Niko and Chance; and a host of family and friends that will all miss her dearly. Maria joins her father, Gil, and sister, Gigi, in heaven.
