Later her father moved the family to Clovis, NM. Here she married her late husband of 14 years, Jim "Jimmy" Maestas and together they had two daughters.

She lived in Clovis until she married an Air Force Sergeant, Lawrence Coffman, who answered her dreams of traveling; they moved to Germany and lived there for three "amazing" years. She traveled throughout Germany and Switzerland. After her travels in Europe, the family moved and settled to Beavercreek, Ohio. Her joy in life was taking care of her family and helping others. Her compassion and giving nature has touched many friends and family all over the nation. She valued her faith in the Lord, life and friendships

Maria was a devoted wife and homemaker who enjoyed gardening, dancing, reading and traveling. She was able to return to her beloved Europe for a second tour and visited Spain and Italy. She worked at Wright Patterson AFB for 26 years where she received numerous awards for outstanding performances. She enjoyed being a secretary and executive assistant before she retired in 2010.
