Maria Isabel Moreno Hinojosa

With profound sadness we announce the abrupt passing of our beloved daughter, sister, mother, and aunt, Maria Isabel Moreno Hinojosa. She passed away peacefully Saturday morning May 23rd, 2020 due to complications from COVID.

Maria – or “Guera” as she was known to all her friends and family was born November 28th, 1974 in Chandler, Arizona to Luis Hinojosa and Ramona Mendez. After graduating from Chandler High School (Class of ’93), she furthered her education at various educational institutions while raising her three young children. She was a loving and dedicated mother who cared deeply for all her family.

Maria had a vivacious, larger than life personality, and always made everyone around her laugh. She had an extraordinary smile that would light up any room. She made friends everywhere she went. Her life was a living example of the bible verse Ephesians 4:32 “Be kind and compassionate to one another.” Her greatest passion was philanthropy by serving and caring for others. She loved everybody, and everybody loved her.

All whom loved her dearly will never forget her enthusiasm, humor, charm and charisma.

Maria is survived in legacy by her three children Fernando, Johnny and Julie, her parents Luis Hinojosa (father), Ramona Mendez (mother), and step father Ismael Mendez. She is also survived by her siblings Luis Jr. Hinojosa, Diana and her husband Mike Rader, Armando and his wife Linda Hinojosa and Ana and her husband Mauricio Portillo.

    My beautiful sissy. I never thought in a million years I’d be without you. We had so many life long plans , but GOD had different plans.. my heart hurts , my heart aches, the pain is so deep and hurts immensely. There are no words of comfort for me, there are no hugs or kisses that can take my pain away . Sissy all our life our sister roles were reversed i was
    The big sister and you were the little sister. I always looked out for you I always had your back in any given situation, and you always wanted to me happy and proud of all your accomplishments. I will definitely miss your voice, your laughter, and most of all your presence. I love you sissy with all my heart and soul. All though my heart will forever be broken I know I have to be strong and keep your babies safe, loved and most importantly on the right path. I will forever love you sissy. Until we meet again your little big sis.
