Armida was a wonderful friend and encourager. She was always willing to help anyone in need and boldly shared the love of her Heavenly Father to anyone she came in contact with. My condolences to the family. May you feel the love of Jesus in the days ahead.

Armida was a great woman with a big heart full of Faith and Love. From the first time we met her in 1982, she became part of our family and we became part of her family.
We know she is now in heaven, but we will miss her guidance, her smile and her vitality.

We love Armida,

Marwan & Maria Shreibati

Dearest Aunt Armida...tia mia!
As I sit to write you this final note, I am filled with emotion, gratitude, sorrow, pain, joy...my mind is filling with memories of you. Images of laughter, eating, praying, crying, dancing, singing with all the family...when we were all so young...and when we weren't...so young.
You were there for me then, in the "good ole days", and also somewhat recently before moving to Las Cruces, you were there to guide me through a rough time with your love, wisdom and spirit.
I am truly grateful and comforted knowing that you know how much I appreciated and loved you as we were able to share our "I Love You's" on that Monday the 27th.
I will miss our talks, but the wisdom-and the stories-and the memories- and the advice-will live with me throughout my life time.
Until we meet again in the place that He has for us. And since you are now among many of the best people who ever walked this earth...will you give my love to them also as I imagine a hearty welcome from one and all!
(ps...It's the only photo I had of you and me :-/

She is my American mother figure. I got to know her in the 1970's. We worked at a color lab in Santa Clara. We started working at 6 a.m. everyday and we had a wonderful working relationship.

Every Labor Day Armida, Manuel, Jerry, Michael and David and I went to Klamath River near Weitchpec to have fun camping & catch half pounder steelheads. She was a great cook.

Armida & I had a side business taking Wedding Photo's and family portraits. She moved to the Auburn area & we exchanged phone calls & Christmas cards. She always included a note about what had happened that year.

After 2000 I moved to Foresthill & saw her in her Christian Valley home and visited her often. After she moved to Las Cruces I couldn't wait to go see her. In 2017 my wife & I pulling A 30' travel trailer went to Las Cruces to visit her.

She took us to her birth place & I met lots of relatives, saw the Hatch Chili fields & the Chili Factory her family owns. We also went to see White Sand National Park with her & her grandson who was also visiting. Me & my wife always had a wonderful and memorable time together with her.
Thank You Armida rest in peace.

My tia was one of the most amazing people ever to walk this planet. Although she lacked stature, she had the heart of a giant. She had a neverending fountain of love that she shared, not only with family but everyone that she met. I'm positive that many of us will remember the way that she loved to feed us (especially tamales). However, I undoubtedly know that her great passion in life was her love for Jesus Christ. Within her heart was a desire for everyone to get to know Him as personally and intimately as she had come to know Him. It was her faith in Jesus that helped her navigate the loss of her husband, the loss of her son, and her failing health as she grew old. Although she is no longer with us, she is undoubtedly dancing in the arms of her Savior and God. And as she dances, she sends us her love and invites us to join her in the presence of the Father someday. So, as we take time to remember our beautiful Armida, let us also take a minute to bow our heads in gratitude for the privilege and honor of having her be part of our lives for so many years..... and if so dare to do so .... I extend the same invitation that my tia gave to all... to invite Jesus into your heart as your friend, your savior, and your Lord.

I will miss your smile and your wisdom and your tamales! Thank you for all that you did for my family and the love you shared with my mother and me. I know for sure you are at peace. May you rejoice in the kingdom of heaven! You are at home.
