Maria “LUISA” Morales, 64, Born in Gatesville, Texas the 17th of January 1953. Luisa moved to Idaho and initially worked as a migrant worker so that she could be close to her family. She had multiple occupations throughout her life but she considered her main vocation as being a mother and grandparent. As a single parent, she taught her children that hard work and a strong will is what gets you through life. Luisa was a jack of all trades, there was nothing she couldn’t do. She didn’t understand the word CAN’T. She was resourceful and creative, always finding a way to make something out of nothing; including providing exceptional meals when she had little in the pantry. She was very outspoken, opinionated, and passionate about what she believed in. You always knew where you stood with her, she made sure of it! Luísa’s finest characteristic was her ability to love, truly; unconditionally. She was fearless and courageous, she traveled coast to coast alone, she fed the homeless and picked up hitchhikers to get them a little further in life than she found them. She was the only person that you could count on when all hope was lost. Her door was always open and she was readily awaiting to give you a place to rest your head and a warm plate to fill your soul. She loved to be spontaneous and lived for the moment, never thinking about tomorrow or what she didn’t have. She did whatever her company wanted to do because she loved to make all feel welcomed. Her favorite things to do with her children, grandchildren and friends were fishing, bicycling, traveling, camping, cooking, eating, watching movies (with popcorn and pickles), golfing, tennis, shooting, playing pool, or simply having a beer. She lived a very balanced life, always putting her wants and needs aside to give you all she had. Keeping her family together meant the most to her. She loved her grandchildren and was blessed to see her four greatgrandchildren. Nothing could change the character of her heart, she was the same through all stages of her life. Luisa always went where she was needed and when God needed another angel, she went peacefully in the comfort of her home with her four children by her side. A service will be held at Bella Vida Funeral Home on Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017. The family suggest that memorials may be made to an ALS charity of one’s choosing.
