Maria Ayers, age 62 went to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, January 21, 2023.


A gifted educator, she spent her whole life dedicated to educating children.


She spent the last several years of her life having a positive impact on the children she loved very much at Rapha Academy.


Maria will be deeply missed by her loving husband Ramon, stepmother Mita, and daughters Alina and Jennifer. She was a proud grandmother of three grandchildren and three great grandchildren. 

She is loved by countless family members, friends, and brothers and sisters in Christ.

The family would like to thank Rapha Academy for giving Maria the opportunity to continue living out her God-given purpose until the very end of her life. What a gift and a blessing you were to her. We are eternally grateful for that.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Rapha Academy, C/O In Memory of Maria 700 Gulf Road Elyria, OH 44035 or via ; (Fund “Rapha Academy”, Memo “ In Memory of Maria“).


A Celebration of Life will be held this Spring.
