Josie G. “Peta” Maez

March 25, 1927 - November 6, 2020

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Josie G. “Peta” Maez, 93, from Durango, Colorado, rejoined her heavenly family and earned her wings on November 06, 2020.

Mom loved spending time with family and friends. She was a very special woman who left an everlasting impression on all who knew and loved her. She was so full of love and kindness and it showed in all she did. The most remarkable thing about our mom was the way she turned life’s unbearable moments into something better with a smile and a prayer. Hopefully, her advice will live on in all her children and never be forgotten.

As our mom would say, “Be happy and enjoy life."

We love you Momma and we will miss you tremendously.
