Maria Teresa Bravo

April 17, 1932 - August 22, 2020

It is with great sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved friend and longtime Governor, Maria Teresa Bravo, who died peacefully in her home on Saturday, August 22, 2020.

 

Maria Teresa will be remembered for being thoughtful and humorous; her smile and energy would always light up the room.  Her heart was kind and compassionate, and we’ll miss that playful sparkle in her eyes.

 

Maria Teresa had been a member of BHCCLSA for over twenty years and served as Corresponding Secretary (6 years), Executive Secretary (10+ years), Public Relations Officer (6 years), and Governor (9+ years). Maria Teresa, after working as a legal secretary for ten years, obtained a paralegal certificate from UCLA in 2002 and a Bachelor Degree in Paralegal Studies in 2008 from National University.  She was awarded a Translator/Interpreter (English/Spanish-Spanish/English) certificate in 2004 from UCLA and a Parliamentarian certificate in 2010.

 

Maria Teresa was employed as a paralegal by the law offices of Neil C. Newson & Associates, in Beverly Hills, where she had worked for the past thirty years.

Maria Teresa will live on in our memories forever.

 

A mass and tribute to celebrate the life of Maria Teresa Bravo was held on Saturday, September 12th via Zoom.  Cards of condolence may be sent to Maria's son, Eric Bravo, at the following address:
