We learned that our neighbor, an Original Bowfiner, Maria Rouse, has passed away this month (April, 2021).
Maria was a talented singer, performing in the 1950s and 1960s under the name “Maria Del Carmen.”
Some of her beautiful singing can be found on Youtube. (example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSr1cVRQ5no )
She and her family were featured in this April, 2014, interview by her nextdoor neighbor, Lauren Iwata.
