Maria Quezada, 67, of Lebanon, passed away on Thursday, Dec. 24, 2020, at home. She was the wife of the late Remigio Quezada.

Maria was a faithful member of New Birth Methodist Church in Lebanon. She loved listening to worship music and caring for her family. Maria’s door was always open. The neighborhood kids affectionately referred to her as “Mama” because once you met her, you became one of her own. She was always cooking and enjoyed nothing more than feeding the people she loved. Her heart was big and her coffee pot was bottomless. A warm cup was offered to everyone who came to visit.

Maria is survived by four children, Ivelice Quezada Medina, and her husband, Angel Sanchez, Herman Quezada, and his wife, Christina Rivera, Haydee Quezada, and Eduardo Rodriguez; 11 grandchildren, Nelson, Antonio, and Audriana Quezada, Jonathan, Isiah, and Saydee Candelario, Uncke Quezada, Ricardo Salgado, Angel Sanchez, Jr., Letia Quezada, and Analice Mercado; two great-grandchildren, Aydin Salgado and Aniya Patterson. She was preceded in death by her son, Aurelio Quezada.

Funeral services will be held privately. Interment will be at Kimmerling’s Cemetery. Thompson Funeral Home, Inc. has been entrusted with arrangements. Please share your memories with the family at our online guest book at
