Christendom College mourns the passing of alumna Maria Halliday, who attended the college from 2003-05. A teacher, realtor, and loyal friend, Halliday passed unexpectedly at the age of 32.
Halliday, a native of Cincinnati, Ohio, also resided in Arizona and Virginia. She studied at Christendom College before later earning her Masters in library information and science from the Catholic University of America in 2010. Halliday taught courses in Scottsdale, Arizona, before joining the TD Bank Group for several years. She later earned her real estate license, and even became a loan operations specialist in her most recent career.
Halliday, a Cleveland Indians fan, was studying to be a paralegal before her passing.
She is survived by her parents, her brother, a niece and several cousins.
Eternal rest grant unto her O LORD and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
