Francisca C. Cortez
November 28, 1930 – October 20, 2019
Francisca C. Cortez, loving wife, mother, sister, ,grandmother, and friend, departed this earth on October 20, 2019 leaving behind a legacy of compassion and kindness.
Born in Tamulipas, Mexico, Francisca came to Florida 45 years ago in search of a better life for her family. In 1983 she became a naturalized citizen; which was one of her proudest moments.
Her greatest passions were caring for the children of Greenacres Elementary School serving in the food service industry for 41 years. In addition, she worked 21 years at Palm Beach Regency Care as a CNA caring for the elderly after school.
Her commitment to those she cared for is unsurpassed. She instilled in her children a commitment to hard work, dignity and respect for all. Those who knew her would tell you that she was a woman of strong character, with a positive disposition and always quick with a smile. We love you momma and will hold you forever in our hearts! Sing with the angels.
