Maria E. Figueroa

It is with great sadness that we announce the recent passing of Maria E. Figueroa in Troy, New York at the young age of 58. Maria always had a big heart and would go out of her way to care for those around her. She was a passionate person who thrived on helping others and especially being a grandmother to Justice, Makenna, and Javin Quinones. Born in Morovis, Puerto Rico she moved with her parents and siblings to New York with hopes of a better life.


Maria is survived by her three children – Santos, Sam, and John.

    My dearest friend Maria, we met about 30 years ago at a playground with our children, and remained good friends.
    She was so thoughtful, truthful, kind, a tuff cookie and real, that’s why I loved Maria so much. I thank God I was able to see her in November of 2021 and spend some quality time with her. My heart is broken, but I know she is in peace and not suffering anymore. I want to ask God to give her beautiful children and grandchildren the strength that they need at this time. Sending my love to them all. God bless . Rest In Peace my sister. Love Michelle.
