Maria Dilia Guerrero, 89, of Hazleton, passed away peacefully of natural causes Saturday evening, July 11, 2020 at Chester County Hospital in West Chester.
Born in Anzoategui, Colombia, May 2, 1931, she was the daughter of the late Jose Tiburcio and Carmen Rosa (Del Castillo) Guerrero and spent the past nine months in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, in the care of family after moving from Hazleton where she raised her grandchildren.
Maria was a member of the Catholic faith who enjoyed sewing, knitting, singing, and reading. She selflessly helped raise her grandchildren after their mother's passing and loved spending time with her great-granddaughter. She was a source of joy and wisdom to all that loved her and always managed to find laughter, even in challenging times.
She was preceded in death, in addition to her parents, by her daughter Luz Elena Navia who passed away March 28, 1987.
Surviving are her granddaughter Fatima Sattar; Downingtown; grandson Nasim Sattar, Miami, FL; great-granddaughter Mariaelena Navia at home, and several nieces and nephews.
Her funeral will be held Thursday, July 16, 2020, at 7pm from Harman Funeral Homes & Crematory Inc. (East), 669 W. Butler Drive, Drums. Friends may call at the funeral home from 5 to 7pm. Interment will take place privately at the convenience of the family.
