Obituary for Maria J. Lucy

May 21, 1928 - June 16, 2020
San Antonio, Texas | Age 92


Maria J. Lucy, 92, passed away on Tuesday, June 16, 2020 in San Antonio, Texas. She was born May 21, 1928 in Memmingen, Germany to Aloisia Scholhorn and Hans Scholhorn.

She was the kindest person you would ever meet. She always lived life to the fullest. She loved her children more than words could say. She was a single mother of 3 and lived for her children. In her early years she worked in the Stars and Stripes in Germany, as a florist, worked for Avon and a curtain factory but the job she loved most was being a homemaker. She was training for the Olympics as a high platform diver until the war started. Her family had their house bombed and lost all their belongings not once but twice.They were lucky they owned a trout farm and could trade their fish for other items needed. She was always helping others, and volunteered all her life at the VFW. She would go to the El Paso cemetery every year to help place the flags. She even made it in the newspaper but was so embarrassed that she had worn her curlers and scarf so her hair would be perfect later in the day for the ceremony. She loved to cook and was the best cook ever. She loved working in her garden and loved flowers. She loved hamburgers. She had a stroke 10 years ago and never fully recovered but even with everything she went thru, she never once complained.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Eloisa Huber and Hans Scholhorn; brother, Hans Scholhorn; sister, Leni Scholhorn; and son, Mark Holdenwang. Maria is survived by her loving children, Angela McMahan (Roger) of San Antonio, Texas and Robert Bauer (Keith) of Dallas, Texas; as well as her three grandchildren, Mathis McMahan, Marc Holdenwang, and Tyler Holdenwang.

A memorial mass will be held 12:00 p.m., July 25, 2020 at Holy Spirit Catholic Church.
