Community icon laid to rest

Maria Nieves Cal Sanchez

PGTV notes with sadness the passing of community icon Maria Nieves Cal Sanchez, a resident of San Pedro Columbia village.

Those who knew her, recall Maria’s Holy Saturday tradition of whipping the children with Madre Cacao, followed by her Caldo dinner.

It was an Easter tradition for her and the community at large.

Maria Nieves Cal Sanchez was laid to rest over the weekend.
