Obituary of Maribel Gallardo
Maribel Gallardo was born and raised here in Santa Cruz, California. She made her biggest impact on our community by being a drug and alcohol counselor, helping recovering addicts. Previously, Maribel worked as a gang interventionalist, helping the youth on probation and in Juvenile Hall.
Maribel had an inner spark, a presence that commanded respect, and a charm that won over the many people who got to meet and know her. Never one to turn her back on someone in need, she had an amazing community of family and friends who loved and adored her.
Our beloved Maribel, with her big personality, huge heart, and witty but genuine sense of humor, will truly be missed and forever remain in our hearts.
