Maribel Ortega, age 47, of Taunton, passed away on December 15, 2018 at her residence.

Born in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, Maribel was the daughter of the late Faustino and Aida (Rosario) Ortega, Sr.

Miss Ortega was a loving personal care assistant and a very talented hair stylist. Maribel was a nurturing and caring person who was devoted to her family.

She enjoyed getting everyone together and spending time with her family and friends. Cooking delicious meals, shopping and  helping others succeed. As well as, being crafty and artistic always coming up with new ideas and making them come to life like no other. She was not only a Mother, but a best friend to her three children. She taught them to be resilient and to always keep going, no matter how hard. She believed in her God and her faith was passed down to all of her children. Maribel was amazing, dedicated, loved and will be very missed. There was not a time she didn’t smile, even through  the toughest of times. Maribel was all around Super Woman, there was nothing she couldn’t do.
