Obituary of Maria Raumberger

Mary Raumberger passed away peacefully Wednesday April 5, surrounded by family. Born in Djakovo, Croatia, she moved with her family to Akron, Oh, in 1950. After living in Cleveland and Germany, working and studying art with several prominent painters, she moved to New York City, where she lived for the past 50 years working as a free-lance artist. She gave away her paintings as cherished gifts to her relatives, who will miss not just her great talent but also her fierce independent streak.
