Tribute & Message From The Family

Maria…. (Cuca) Trevino, age 93, passed away on Monday, August 15, 2016, at the home of her daughter, Margaret, surrounded by her loving family. She was born July 4, 1923, in Crystal City, Texas, to Pedro and Adela (Rodriquez) Flores. On March 26, 1941, she married Domingo Trevino, they settled in Britton, Michigan in 1948, then moved to Adrian, Michigan in 1965. They celebrated 53 years of marriage until he preceded her in death on December 21, 1994. After staying home and raising her children, Maria worked at the Dominican Mother House and Tuttle's manufacturing in Tecumseh. She was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church and the Guadalupe Society.
She enjoyed crocheting, watching Spanish novelas, and making trips to local casinos with her family. Maria loved cooking her family's favorite foods, whenever you went to her house she wanted to feed you, it was just part of her nurturing ways. Maria liked spending time in her flower garden, her green thumb could doctor most failing plants taken to her.
She was referred to as Grandma Kitty by her grandchildren due to her love of cats. There was never a time in her life that she did not have a cat…the oldest living 21 years!
Her greatest pleasure "her heart" was her family. Family was everything to her and she was able to celebrate 5 generations with 3 of her children.
Maria is survived by two sons, Rogelio (Yolanda) Trevino and Domingo (Esther) Trevino Jr., both of Adrian. Three daughters, Margaret Flores of Adrian, Esther Campbell of Highland, MI, and Virginia (Leo) Oswald of Clayton. A brother, Ermilo Flores of Harrisburg, PA; 10 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; 6 great-great-grandchildren.; and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her husband, Domingo, she was preceded in death by a son, Gustavo Trevino; and five brothers and one sister.
