Teresa Camejo Horta, known as “Mima” to her beloved children and "Abuela" to her grandchildren passed away peacefully at home on Sunday December 6, 2020 at the age of 80. Mima was born on November 13th, 1940 in Pinar del Rio, Cuba. She worked as a seamstress for over 25 years.

Mima immigrated to the US with her husband and three young children in April 1971 in pursuit of the American dream. A dream that became a reality. Mima was a woman who was nothing but heart and love.

She is preceded in death by her father and mother, Antonio Camejo and Rosa Perez Arenas as well as her siblings, Ubaldo Camejo, and Benita Camejo.

Mima is survived by her daughter, Rebeca Guerra (Chris); son, Othoniel Horta (Miriam); son, Juan Antonio Horta (Jennifer). She is also survived by her beloved grandchildren, Nairoby, Marlyn, Daniel, Madeline, David, Michael, Takoda and Reese.
