In memory of
MARIA CRISTINA DIAZ (Age 86) Surviving wife of CSM (Ret) U.S. Army Jose R Diaz died at her home on April 5, 2017. Born to Francisco Perez and Juana Maldanado in Gurabo, Puerto Rico on September 17, 1930. While residing in Lorton, VA for over 40 years, Cristina worked as a school bus driver for Fairfax County serving faithfully for 22 years. She loved not only gardening but to sew, and did until she was no longer able. Her garden was a hodge podge with every color and flower imaginable. Roses were a feature in her yard that everyone always commented on. They were that beautiful. She is survived by her children Joseph R. Diaz, Brenda Moore (Jim) and Paul Diaz (Annie). She was the proud grandmother of seven grandchildren and great grandmother of eight. Her brother, Angel Perez also survives her. There will be a Mass said for her in the not too distant future. Once the date and time has been set that information will be posted on the funeral home website at www.mountcastle.net . Interment will be at Arlington National Cemetery. Arrangements entrusted into the care of Mountcastle Turch Funeral Home, Woodbridge, VA.
