Maria Linda Reintegrado Plana, age 74, passed away on December 7, 2023, in her Gresham, Oregon home following her battle with cancer.

She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, tending to her indoor and outdoor garden, Zumba, aerobics and yoga at the L.A. Fitness, and coupon thrifting at Safeway and Fred Meyer. During times of solitude, you could find her praying, attending mass, or listening to her favorite praise music. Her faith played a central role in finding peace, comfort, and reflection.
