Obituary for Maria Dever

DEVER, Maria

Maria passed away unexpectedly with her loving family at her side on December 3rd, 2023. She is now reunited in Heaven with her parents, Francesco and Caterina Furlano. Beloved wife and high school sweetheart to Richard. Cherished mother to Vanessa (Paul Silva) and Mitchell (Liz). Nonna to Jake, Leo, Julia and Selena. Sister to Rosa (Filippo Galloro), Joe (Loretta, predeceased), Vito (her twin), Francesca (Robert Edwards). Sister-in-law to Patrick (Norma) and Nancy (Steve Smalridge). Aunt to Michelle, Denise, Ryan, Patsy, Sarah, Ashley, Takiyah, Aliyah, Isabella and the late Jasmine.

Maria lived for her children and grandchildren and loved to travel the world with the love of her life. She was the life of the party - you would find her dancing or snapping pictures of everyone around her. Her energy was unmatched. From planning her trips to her summer pool parties, she loved bringing people together. She was the glue and more than anything, she loved being with her family and friends. Maria was a beautiful person, inside and out. Generous, caring, and funny. She was the personification of light.
