Maria Durmeliza Moreno, born in Rosais, Sao Jorge, Azores on the 10th of April 1943 to the late Jose Reis Maciel and Teresa Maciel, passed away in her home in Manteca on the 9th of August 2018 at the age of 75. After her long battle of 12 years with cancer, her body was finally too weak to go on. She leaves behind her husband of 49 years, Armando F. Moreno and two children, Mary Jo Parsons and Armando B. Moreno and her four adoring grandchildren, Vivian Parsons, Ella Parsons, Lucas Moreno and Reese Moreno. She also leaves behind six sisters, Maria Valquiria Bem, Maria Durvalina Serpa, Maria Diocleciana Almada, Maria Liduina Nazare, Ana Maria Tavares, Maria Vivalda Oliveira and two brother, Jose Antonio Reis and Milton Jose Reis.
