Anna M. Flores
December 3, 1956 – March 16, 2020
Anna Maria Flores, 63, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in a mansion prepared for her on March 16, 2020.
Anna was born on December 3, 1956, the first daughter and fourth born of 8, to Albert and Delia Reyes in Los Angeles, California. After graduating from Lincoln High School in 1975, she went on to attend Los Angeles City College and studied Business Management. A dedicated wife and mother, Anna worked every day of her life since she was a teenager. When she retired from the corporate world, she continued to work, but this time fully for the Lord.
She had the heart of a missionary and longed to serve in Africa. While she never had a chance to fulfill that dream, her heart’s desires were met in ministering to all who came across her path, here at home and also abroad, especially while visiting throughout Guatemala and Mexico. Anna was passionate about sharing the gospel and shining the light of truth to every person she met. The elderly and the little ones had a very special place in her heart. She showed her love for them in the simplest ways such as cooking for them, spending time with them, and bringing them little gifts. Her thoughtfulness and kindness spread far and wide. Cooking was obviously one of Anna’s labors of love—when she wasn’t busy cooking up a storm in her kitchen for a bible study or fellowship, she could be found singing hymns or reading her bible. Anna also enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren and grandfurbabies. Anna could never be caught without her lovely smile. She brought joy, hope, and laughter to all whom she encountered.
Anna is survived by her husband, Eric Flores, her children Delia Serna, Anna Hernandez, Ingrid Flores, Estuardo Flores, Haydee Flores, 17 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren. We will miss her dearly and deeply every single day…until we meet again.
To our dear family and friends:
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are only permitted to hold a private graveside ceremony for immediate family members. We are working to either live stream or video record and plan to share it with you all via the following Facebook group page:
In the interim, please join the Facebook group and post any memories, photos, or stories you may have of Anna—a beloved wife, mother, sister, grandma, aunt, cousin, and friend. Sharing the ways she has touched you or brought joy to your life will help all of us heal during this difficult time of grieving while respecting social distancing. We look forward to planning a celebration of Anna’s life once restrictions are lifted and we will share further details on the group page as they become available.

Tan triste que son las despedidas, las personas que uno quiere, todo lo que dejan atrás, la familia y los amigos... pero resulta reconfortante saber que la persona que se va le entregó su vida a Jesús, por eso sabemos y creemos que aunque muera vivirá (Jn 11:25).
Mi apoyo y fortaleza para mi tío y mis primos y primas, pronto todos estaremos juntos nuevamente.

I first met Anna when she visited our church up in the San Bernardino mountains. She came back again with her husband Eric and her family. She was always generous and kind, and we were blessed to spend time with her and her family. She was a woman who loved the Lord and it showed in her life.
