Cuando sus hijos eran pequeños se enorgullecía de diseñar y coser su ropa. Pasaba horas haciendo esto mientras los veía jugar. María también tenía una personaliad humanitaria. Siempre pensaba y ayudaba a los menos afortunados y, aunque no tenía mucho, siempre encontraba la manera de ayudar a los demás.
