Maria Ketina Escobar Forrer was born January 27, 1950 in
She lost her parents at very young age and grew up with her
siblings Ofelia, Jesus (Chungo), Miguel, Andres, and Natividad
She was married to her husband Oscar Andreas Forrer August 9,
1969 for 36 years. But she never stopped counting the anniversary
years preceding his death and considered themselves married until
the end totaling 49 years of marriage.
Mother to daughter Susana, sons Pedro, Jacobo, Antonio,
daughters Maria Helena and Lily.
She is also survived by sisters Ofelia, Nati and Chungo. Her
grandchildren Jacob, Monica, Joel, Dominque, Lucas, Andrew,
Alexis, Abigail, Juan Fernando and Gabriella. Her nephews Davíd,
Samuel, nieces Gladys and Sandra along with many more family in

We all knew Maria as a free spirit. She was persistent,
strong, a fighter and once she set her mind to
something, she was determined, not stopping until she
had it or kept trying. She married when she was
nineteen and set off to Canada with Oscar then to
Blythe, California. In the loss of their daughter Susana,
they moved to Arizona. She raised 5 children the best
way she knew how.
She meant a great deal for some giving them life
changing moments. She helped her sister Nati and her
family come to the United States for a better life. She
tried to help her family in Honduras in the best way she
could. She would remember important dates like
birthdays, wedding anniversaries and random facts
about celebrities.
Just like any parent or person, she may have had her
imperfections. But it is in those imperfections, we loved
the quirks that make her unique. She loved to laugh and
would say the most hilarious things that would make
your belly muscles ache. She had style and class, loving
to dress up accentuating her look with that special scarf.
She was stubborn, but in that stubbornness showed her
strength, determination and boldness. It was this
characteristic about Maria, that carried her through the
death of her son Pedro and her beloved husband Oscar.
Truly, she was an amazingly strong person. We may
have lost Maria in this world, but we will see her again.
Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will
be comforted.”
