Maria J. LaPorte passed away December 17, 2020 at her home. She was born in Madrid, Spain February 28, 1937 to Jesus and Maria Paz Palomar. Maria married Paul LaPorte May 5, 1962 in Madrid while Paul was

Maria was a Communicant of The Immaculate Conception Church in Hoosick Falls, a Grey Lady Volunteer at SVMC for over 40 years, a member of Home Bureau and the Ladies Elks Auxiliary. She was an
amazing cook and liked to quilt, do crafts, and spend time with her family at their camp on Lake St. Catherine, VT. The greatest love of her life was her family whom she treasured and they adored her immensely.

How I loved my Tita Maria Jesus....her laughter, fierce love for her family, her enormous heart and just her passion for life. She was my beloved aunt and godmother and I will miss her forever. But she lives on in and through her family, and I carry her tenderly in my broken heart for always.

Catherine, Pablo, Paz, Paco, Michael and families,
So very sad to read this news this morning! Loved your mother and her smile and her laugh! I did get to see your Mom a couple years back having breakfast at the diner one Sunday morning. One of my fondest memories of your mom was at Susan Maher's wedding; I was a new mom with a 3 month old baby and your mom just took that little girl and held her close the whole wedding!! Of course she had way more to hold her with than I did! haha She was a loving woman. Thinking about you all.
Prayers and much love to you all
