Maria Elena Rivera
Maria Elena Rivera, age 56, passed away on August 8, 2021 at her home in Las Vegas, NV after a short battle with cancer. She also had other health conditions, but that didn’t put her down. She always had the strong-willed to live.
Maria was born in El Salvador on November 12, 1964 and moved to Los Angeles, CA at age 15. She worked hard to provide for her children. She always gave to others without expecting anything in return.

Mom, you will never be forgotten.
