Maria leaves behind 2 brothers, Paul Combel and Michael Combel, and her sister Margaret Alaqueel and she is preceded in death by her son Jeffrey, and 2 brothers Ricky and Stephen. Maria spent her life lovingly raising children and running a successful business with Terry. Together, Maria and Terry had many adventures throughout their 45-year marriage like camping and beach trips with the kids, volleyball and bowling nights, and enjoying classic cars and flipping houses together.
