Maribel was born in Morelos, Mexico on June 17, 1981, to Guadalupe Flores Rocha and Ramiro Ruiz Flores.
Mrs. Ruiz Flores studied at Secundaria Tecnica 33 and graduated as valedictorian of her class as a medical secretary in 1998.
Maribel had two daughters Brittany (16) and Evelyn (14) with her childhood love. She is survived by her daughters, parents, siblings, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles and close friends.
Maribel’s passion was to spend as much time as possible with her family, especially attending school events with her daughters, reading, watching Netflix, gardening, but most importantly making sure everyone around her was always smiling.
