“Such a sad day for Crawley. This tiny Italian lady showed us what true giving and service should be. I first met Maria when she cooked for us in the middle of the night while working on the wards at Crawley Hospital as a nurse in the 70s and 80s and I have been close to her ever since. Her relentless work for the Hospital League of Friends and health charities in Crawley is unsurpassed. Maria’s family had to share her with us and for that we should be eternally grateful. I will miss her fabulous smile and her great big laugh but she will always always in my heart. Goodbye my dear friend.”Janet Lane posted: “My dear friend Maria, at peace now, no more pain. The dinner dances in heaven will be amazing xx”
