Maria L. Carchia, a beacon of love and joy to all who knew her, passed away suddenly on February 7, 2024, at the age of 30. Born on February 26, 1993, in Norwood, MA, Maria was a cherished individual who left an indelible mark on the hearts of her family and friends.
As the beloved daughter of Carol-Ann (Bethoney) Carchia of Norton and Richard Carchia of Vero Beach, Florida, Maria grew up surrounded by a nurturing family. She was the loving mother of Catalina and Dant'ae Carchia, who were the center of her universe. Maria was the treasured granddaughter of Carol Bethoney and the late Garry Bethoney, and of Richard Carchia and the late Patricia Carchia. She was also the devoted sister of Ricky Carchia and is survived by many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends, who will miss her warmth and kindness immensely.
A graduate from high school, Maria devoted her professional life to caring for others as a Nursing Assistant. Her compassionate nature and dedication to her work made her a valued member of the healthcare community. She was not only committed to her profession but also to the well-being of everyone she encountered.
Maria's interests were a reflection of her love for her family and the simple joys in life. She was a master at cooking Lebanese food, especially grape leaves, which she enjoyed preparing for family gatherings. Her children shared many happy memories with their mother at Castle Island and Nantasket Beach, as well as countless hours spent playing at the playground. Maria's bond with her grandmother was exceptionally strong, and she was fondly known as a "Nana's Girl."
Living with her father and brother in Florida for four years, Maria embraced the coastal lifestyle, often visiting the beach, which brought her great pleasure. During this time, she pursued her education in nursing, a testament to her lifelong passion for helping others. Her brother, Ricky, will hold dear the moments they shared, especially the meals she lovingly prepared.
Those who knew Maria would describe her as loving, kind, and adventurous. She approached life with an open heart and a spirit of discovery, traits that drew people to her and created lasting friendships.
As we remember Maria, we are reminded of the words of Helen Keller: "What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us." Maria's love and the joy she brought to our lives will forever remain a part of who we are.
Maria L. Carchia's sudden departure from this world leaves a void that can never be filled, but her legacy of love, kindness, and adventure will continue to live on through her children, family, and all who were privileged to know her. She will be profoundly missed, but her memory will be cherished and celebrated for generations to come.
