Maria A. Perez, 64, of Aurora, IL passed away on February 2, 2020 at her home. She was born on January 2, 1956 in Mexico, the daughter of Alfredo and Tiburcia (Gomez) Arzola. Maria was a generous soul with a huge heart. She would give the shirt off her back to those in need and never expected anything in return. She loved pets, especially her Chihuahuas. She had a passion for gardening and cooking, opening her door to many to enjoy a home cooked meal. She was a longtime employee of Dart Container and most recently Cardinal Health. She will be deeply missed.
