Maria Del Carmen Miranda

10/15/1955 - 12/15/2021

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Maria Miranda on December 15th, 2021 in San Tan Valley, Arizona at the young age of 66.

Maria was born and raised in Bronx, NY. She was the oldest of 6 children born to Juan and Victoria. She married in 1978 and had 3 daughters and later moved to Gilbert, AZ in 1988. Before her retirement, Maria spent the last several years as a childcare provider where she was known for her compassion and dedication. Maria will be remembered as a loving mother. She treasured her daughters and embraced every moment with them. She especially enjoyed her role as Gigi (grandma).

She is survived by her daughters Melissa (husband Josh), Kathy (husband Christopher), and Stacy (fiancé Austin). She had 7 grandchildren Anthony, Christopher Jr., Brianna, Brayden, Brandon, Ally, Ariana, as well as one great grandchild Julian. She is also survived by her former husband John, sister Lucy and brothers Juan, George, and Victor. Preceded by brother Santiago.

A private celebration of life gathering for family and friends will be held at a later date.

  • I can’t begin to express in words how much it saddens me to learn of the passing of a dear friend. We met back in the mid 90’s when we lived in Gilbert and our kids went to the same school. We shared many good times together throughout the years. What hurts the most is that it’s been years since we been in contact as life takes you in different directions, be it moving or divorce or both. I would have loved to say hello and good-bye one last time. To Melissa, Kathy and Stacy, your Mom was a beautiful person inside and out and I hope you all can find solace in knowing your Mom is in a better place. May God bless you all during this difficult time and much love!
