Maria C. "Titine" Esteves, resources manager

Maria C. "Titine" Esteves, who had been assistant human resources director at the Johns Hopkins University, was killed Jan. 22 in a head-on automobile collision on U.S. 1 in Key Largo, Fla.

The former Ellicott City resident, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was 61.

Her daughter, Anastasia Esteves, 16, who was traveling with her mother at the time of the accident, was released after being treated at Miami Children's Hospital.

Maria Christina Esteves was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She was a graduate of San Juan High School.

She earned a bachelor's degree from what is now Towson University in the 1970s.

Ms. Esteves had been assistant human resources director at Hopkins until moving to Miami four years ago, when she was named federal judiciary human resources manager for the Southern District of Florida.

"Titine was really a very special person. She was exceptionally warm, caring and generous, with an indomitable spirit, strength of character and love of life," said Victoria Chemerys, her former sister-in-law, who lives in Alexandria, Va.

The Miami resident was an avid traveler.

A memorial service was held Saturday in Miami. Plans for a memorial service to be held in Baltimore in the spring were incomplete.

In addition to her daughter, Ms. Esteves is survived by her brother, Vernon Xavier Esteves of Miami; a sister, Maria Isabel Kelly of Cambridge, Mass.; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
