Mamama Aida, I will miss you forever. Christmas, birthdays, and all celebrations won’t be the same without you. I’ll miss your stories, your singing, and of course, messing with your hair.

“God looked around his garden,
And found an empty space.
Then he looked down upon this earth,
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
Gods garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the vey best.”

Te quiero muchísimo, Franny

Te extrañare mucho, mama. Muchas gracias por todo — por siempre acompañarme a la piscina, a la librería, al parque, por todas las risas que hemos tenido juntas, y por mucho más.

Aunque ya no estes acá, se que siempre vas a estar con nosotros. Un besote enorme Mama, te quiero mucho ❤️

Biography

Aida Alicia Champin was blessed with an abundance of leadership qualities. It would be accurate to say that this woman was an outstanding luminary and that her natural abilities served her well. She knew with certainty how she wanted to set priorities in all aspects of her life. She struck those who knew her as the kind of person who awoke in the morning with a clear sense of exactly what she expected from her day and how to set about accomplishing those goals. Aida was a woman who definitely liked order and was most comfortable with an organized and structured lifestyle. When this climate was absent, Aida would set about immediately to create it.

      Aida was born on February 8, 1923 in Callao, Peru. Her parents were Esperanza Vivanco Fajardo and Alcibiades Bejar Puente de la Vega. Aida was raised in Lima, Peru and was brought up to be reasonable in her actions and was taught to use her intellect wisely. She was an honest and straightforward child, traits that reinforced her self-confidence. Even at a young age, Aida was credited with having a positive influence on those around her.

      The positive atmosphere that Aida generated spread to her family. Aida was raised with four siblings. She had three sisters, Dora, Mercedes and Elsa and one younger brother, Enrique. Aida served as a catalyst within the family. She often found herself in the role of providing fair solutions to those sibling disputes. In every family activity, Aida was able to demonstrate her uncommon logic and skill at building compromise.

      Aida's enthusiasm for learning and the personal energy that enthusiasm generated led to her exhibiting leadership qualities early on in her childhood. She liked to see things executed properly and showed a skill for taking control of situations that were drifting out of control. At the same time, she was willing to experiment with different approaches as she worked a plan towards a solution. As a young girl, she took part and loved swimming. In her spare time she liked to travel. Aida's memorable achievements included raising four children, providing for them, and ensuring their education to get ahead in life. She knew what was important in life and that the only way to get ahead was through a proper education.

      As Aida knew in other aspects of her life, she had a clear vision of what she sought in a relationship and worked hard to achieve it. Alejandro was a significant part of her life, and it wasn’t necessary for Aida to be overly sentimental or expressive about it for others to be aware of their mutual devotion. Aida's secret to success was that she always kept the lines of communication open in the marriage and applied the important skill of being a good listener.

      Family and children were important to Aida, even if she didn’t always show it. Aida was blessed with four children, two sons, Alejandro Luis and Carlos Alberto, and two daughters, Aida Liliana and Aida Esperanza. They were also blessed with nine grandchildren, Renzo, Fiorella, Lizette, Vanessa, Giovanna, Alexander, Giancarlo, Pamela, and Francesca and six great grandchildren, Andrea, Nicolas, Alonso, Sofia, Mateo, and Dante. Aida was able to keep order in the family by using the same efficient and straightforward methods with the family as she did at work. Aida rarely made a scene when it came to discipline. Instead, she was subtle and patient in her dealings when teaching the children right from wrong. She knew how to discipline her children, but never held their punishments for more than 30 minutes, it was “you did wrong,” learn from it, and now let us go get an ice cream.

      At work Aida was viewed as a natural leader. She could marshal all of the available resources, including personnel and materials, in order to meet virtually any objective. She was great at developing strategies and made maximum progress with little wasted effort. Aida was also adept at uncovering new and more efficient ways of getting things done. She was able to establish and meet objectives and schedules through long range planning and was always able to keep the big picture clearly in sight. Although Aida might have been described by some as an overachiever, she was without question a dedicated and diligent employee. Her primary occupation was communications specialist and cosmetologist. She was employed for 30 years at Peru's Cancer Institute and later dedicated herself to serving the public in areas of cosmetology or selling beauty products.

      Not only did Aida find pleasure in pursuing her various hobbies, she also enjoyed the discovery and research involved in learning about them. Her skill at problem solving had a positive influence on these activities as well. Her favorite pursuits were without a doubt in business.

      No matter what the activity was, Aida had the ability to motivate others. This talent influenced her participation in sports, too. She sought out the possibilities in a competitive situation, and she stayed cool and calm under pressure. She relished the stimulation of the action and energy associated with sports. In high school, Aida was into swimming. She was also something of a sports fan and enjoyed following her favorite events whenever she got the opportunity. Tops on her list were definitely swimming and soccer.

      Aida lived her life guided by a well-defined set of beliefs. Her faith and religion were important aspects of those beliefs and she transmitted those beliefs to her children. She was a member of the St. Andrew Catholic Church in Coral Springs, Florida.

      Traveling, especially vacations, was another way for Aida to apply her exceptional leadership and organizational skills. She liked exploring different places but also enjoyed designing and scheduling the trips in advance. She had real talent for developing the perfect itineraries. Favorite vacations included Europe, Japan, and of course Peru visiting her children wherever they were.

      Aida was a lover of animals and cherished her pets. One of Aida's favorites was Rintintin, German shepherd. They were best friends for many years.

       She had worked out all of the details well in advance and knew exactly what she was going to do. Her new life involved relocating to California and later to Florida. In retirement, she found new pleasure in traveling and visiting casinos from time to time. Always a well-informed person, Aida enjoyed adding to her wealth of knowledge. Retirement afforded her the time to enjoy that experience and provided one more opportunity to look ahead at what life might offer her.

       She is survived by her children, Alejandro Luis, Aida Liliana, Aida Esperanza, and Carlos Alberto; her grandchildren Renzo, Fiorella, Lizette, Vanessa, Giovanna, Alexander, Giancarlo, Pamela, and Francesca and six great grandchildren, Andrea, Nicolas, Alonso, Sofia, Mateo, and Dante. Services were held at Kraeer Funeral Home. Aida was laid to rest in Our Lady Queen of Heaven Catholic Cemetery in North Lauderdale, Florida.

Aida Alicia will be missed but never forgotten, she will always be in her family’s hearts for she was a great mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and wife.
