In loving memory of Maria Elizabeth Stevens who sadly passed away on 30th April 2022.

Our Queen grew her wings after a short hard battle with small cell lung cancer.
From day dot, our queen always said that she would fight too the very end in which she definitely kept her word.
Mum was first diagnosed on the 14th March 2022 and did not anticipate 7 weeks later we would be holding our queen & saying our goodbyes.

‘Chardonnay’ loved her wine & especially her fags & neither one was far from her…..
Our girl always made sure us kids had the best in life & she would say we repaid her by giving her beautiful grandchildren 🥰

She was one in a million as a mum, wife, nanny, sister, Aunty & friend, and such a strong woman!
We so wish we got to spend more time with mum, but the angels called her & needed her strength sooner rather than later 😢.
Heartbroken is an understatement loosing the queen of our family, who always pulled us all together & would shout at us for arguing with each other & always make sure we got along.
Our family could not be any tighter if it wasn’t for mum.

Our Chardonnay brought us kids into this world & we were all there hand in hand by her side with her loving husband when she left us. we will do her proud alongside dad in sending her to her place of rest.

For all that knew mum would know that she had a heart of gold, she was selfless, always on the end of the phone, and would say it as it is…..
There are soooo many memories that we just cannot put into words as a family & also friends.
But if you have any stories, memories or even photos please share them with us, to be able to look back on the good times with mum.

Goodbyes are not forever, goodbyes are not the end, they simply mean I miss you until we meet again girl!

We all love you 10p our girl ❤️

Love always & forever Mick, Nathan, Sharne, Holly, Miles, Kellyanne, Joe, Mason, Olivia & Ariella ❤️❤️ Xxxx

Mums favourite color is electric blue and wished for us as a family to wear that color. But no preferences to yourselves.

Funds raised will be donated to the Lister Ward at Medway Hospital.

She was a wonderful lady full of happiness and kindness. I remember 1 particular time I went to work in tears as was having a hard time she just smiled at me took me to the day centre at work made me coffee and said chin up girl don't let them get u down and cuddled me. I felt better straight away I lost contact when she left work but I will always remember her such a strong amazing woman. She will get the send off she deserves she was so proud of u all. Fly high Maria b the amazing woman u have always been xx

💔I wish I could be there , to pay my respects but I won’t be in the country I’m absolutely gutted 😭
Met Maria when she move down here in the early years, we click straight away, dance laughed and cried many nights away.
Memories :-
went to a all black persons club in London but we didn’t know until we got in there scary moments she said we will be ok yes we got out alive 🤣
I lived on my own in a flat in Gillingham.one day she said let’s hitchhike to London 😆 well we did laughing all the way Maria said you sit in front and can punch 🤛 him and gab the keys if any funny business and I can punch him from behind but gladly no funny stuff happened 😂
As Maria would often come to flat she would ask what I got to eat so I would always answer ambrosia rice pudding( lots of tins) so often we eat that before we when out lol. Many more memories to tell xx
Maria made everyone smile even when we were sad. Meeting mick and having the most wonderful family was fantastic to watch and see them grow into the most
amazing beautiful children, they are your legacy and I know wherever you are you’ll still love them massively and watch over them. Gone from our arms, but still held in our hearts You was a truly special lady and shall be missed by many 💔
