Aide and Armando often worked long hours and held multiple jobs. Armando passed away in 1992. Aide retired with 20 years of service at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital.
Aide was a good hearted person. She was very generous, empathetic, fun loving and young at heart. She had an infectious laugh, a great sense of humor and a smile that would light up the room. Aide loved to sew, cook, and iron. In her spare time, she liked to watch old movies and novelas on TV. In the summer, you would find her in her garden or sitting by the community pool. Aide loved music and loved to dance. She was always the first one out on the dance floor. Aide also did a lot of travelling. She especially loved to go on a Caribbean cruise. She was not afraid to venture out and experience new and different things. She enjoyed life.
Aide is survived by her husband Joe Idasek, her loving daughter Clara Crespo Lomeli, her grandchildren Frank (Vanessa) Lomeli, Jennifer (Aaron) Lomeli-Gonzalez, Christina Lomeli, Armando Lomeli, and her great grandson Jaylen Lomeli.
Aide was a beautiful human being. Everyone was her “baby”. She was completely devoted to her family, as was her family to her. We all love her. We all miss her. Rest in Peace Aide. Rest in Peace Mamita. Rest in Peace Abuelita.
