Dora loved life and lived it to the fullest. She loved spending time with her daughters and grandchildren. She had a laugh that everyone recognized.

Every Thursday Dora would look forward to having lunch with her brothers and sisters. Where they would make fun of each other, laugh and steal each other’s food.

Dora loved all kinds of music, from oldies to Spanish music and even loved listening to rap with her grand daughters. Her favorite rap song was “Move B, get out the way” She loved watching old movies, those dumb sci-fi movies like Sharknado, which her grandkids would sit there and watch with her, of course judge Judy and most of all John Wayne movies. Dora could never resist the temptation of having her favorite ice cream Jamoca Almond Fudge from Baskin Robbins!

She will always be known by her cousins as “crazy cousin Dora” Dora was loved and adored by her family and friends but most of all her daughters. She will be deeply missed.

On behalf of her daughters Debbie and Elva, with their families, we would like thank you for all of the kind, comforting words, prayers and memories.
