She is survived by her eldest daughter, Linda Hernandez, of Wethersfield, as well as her granddaughter, Katrina Young, with whom she lived in Rocky Hill. Additionally, Maria is survived by grandson Brian Robles and granddaughter Nyasia Rodriguez.


Maria was the oldest daughter among thirteen children. She is survived by her twelve siblings, Jay Portal, Albert Portal and wife Teresa, Ricky Portal, Marcy Sumler and husband Jim, Connie Portal, Laura Giurgiu, Francis Shettle and husband Kevin, Frankie Portal, Linda Markiewicz and husband Eric, Armondo Portal and wife Carol, Antoinette Cordier, and James Portal. Maria also leaves behind her beloved nieces and nephews, who remember her fondly for the love and care that she readily gave them in her time on Earth.


The family offers their thanks to the staff at Maple View Health and Rehab in Rocky Hill for caring for Maria in her final days, as well as to the staff of Hartford Hospital/Hartford HealthCare at Home.


Family and friends are invited to Brooklawn Funeral Home in Rocky Hill on Saturday, May 7th from 1-3pm to honor Maria's memory. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the ASPCA or a local animal rescue.
