Maria Cristina Iucciolino of New Hyde Park, NY passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, December 9, 2018. She was 70 years old. The daughter of Irilia Piastrellini Sanchez the late Juan Adolfo Sanchez, Maria was born on May 30, 1948 in Argentina.

Cristina grew up in San Rafael, Argentina being an exemplary student.  She eventually became a school teacher in Argentina, as well as a piano teacher.  She moved to the United States, where she studied and became a tax preparer, and eventually returned to her roots as a teacher by working as a teacher liaison in the Great Neck School District. She received many awards and recognition throughout the years for her community service work (with the Hispanic Community of Great Neck, as well as other community organizations), her work with the Catholic Church and her charity. She was deeply devoted to her family; her mother, her husband and her children, but most of all, her grandchildren whom she always loved and cherished so deeply. She loved to travel and loved helping people everywhere she went. She made friends with everyone she met. Throughout her life, she helped so many charities for children and animals.  She had a heart of gold and truly was the most selfless person in the world.
