August 13, 1956 - March 5, 2021
Maritza Montanez Sanchez, born August 13, 1956, a lifetime resident of Stamford, CT, was called home to the Lord on Friday, March 5, 2021 surrounded by her children and brothers. Maritza was born in Patillas, Puerto Rico and was brought to Connecticut as a newborn by her late parents, Santos & Laura Montanez. To know her was to love her. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, daughter, sister, and a very loyal friend. An avid reader, she never went anywhere without her Kindle. She very much enjoyed music and dancing and could be the life of any party. Having lived her entire life in Stamford, she was often referred to as “El Alcalde” or “The Mayor” among her family and close friends. Maritza was a strong supporter of the United States Veterans of War and the Wounded Warriors Project. As such, she would go head-to-head with anyone in defense of our country and as a devoted Catholic, she would also argue vehemently in defense of her faith. Maritza will forever remain in our hearts. May she forever rest in peace. Maritza is survived by her children Laura Cherise, Angelo, Federico, and Santos as well as by four grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and seven siblings Betsy, Laura, Velma, Santos, Anel, Kenneth, and Alice, as well as many nieces and nephews. In compliance with state mandates and the safety of all those attending her funeral services, it is mandatory to wear face coverings and maintain social distancing. Family welcomes all relatives and friends on Thursday, March 11, 2021 from 4pm – 8pm at Bosak Funeral Home, 453 Shippan Ave, Stamford, CT. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10am on Friday, March 12, 2021, at the Basilica of St. John the Evangelist, 279 Atlantic St, Stamford, CT. Interment will follow at Woodland Cemetery, 66 Woodland Pl, Stamford, CT.
