Loving Sister


Maria Eva Diego, 55, of Pleasantville, NJ went home to be with the Lord on Thursday January 7, 2021. Born in Atlantic City she was the loving daughter of the late James "Jimmy" and Mary L. Diego. Maria was raised by her late loving maternal grandmother Mary Ketschek.

Some of Maria's most enjoyable moments from her youth included spending time in the kitchen with her favorite Aunt Kay, enjoying a snack or her incredible lasagna.
