Maria Rosario Salazar Hernandez born June 12, 1944 was called home on Thursday, October 11, 2018, at the age of 74. Maria resided in Deweyville with her husband, Henry C. Hernandez. She raised her family in Brigham City, she started a business in Brigham and attended church there as well.
Maria married the love of her life, Enrique ‘Henry’ Chavez Hernandez, on December 27, 1964 in San Antonio, Texas. They briefly lived in Mesa, Arizona before making Brigham City, Utah their home.
Maria earned her cosmetology certificate from Hollywood School of Beauty, then went on to earn her Utah state license and started as a stylist at the Castle of Beauty in downtown Brigham. Three years later, Maria started her own salon, ‘Maria’s Magic Mirror,’ where she continued until her retirement in 1996.
