April 12, 1943 – June 2, 2018
Magda Proenza is survived by her five children: Tatiana E. Foltz, Tania Mendez, Elizabeth Simon, Magda Simon and Vicente Simon. Also survived by her siblings: Miguel, Rafael, Mirtha, Maddelin, Marrietta, Ramon, Renay and Mayrena; Her grandchildren: Daniel, KC, Christian, Victor, Lazaro, Gabriel, Giovanni, Gavin, Jesse, Deandre, Jessica, Yanae, Carlos and Aramis and 8 great grandchildren and much more family and many more friends.
From dust we come and to dust we return but upon our physical death our spirit is returned to God who has given it to us for our individual bodies here on earth, so Mami is now at God's side in heaven. Magda (Mami) rejoins her son, Juan Carlos and her parents, Ada and Rafael and her other loved ones and one day we will join them as well.
Her legacy of kind spirit, strong will and determination, passion for buying things she didn't need but must have, love of hearing the word of God, and zest for life will live on through many of us. She always had a smile on his face and a joke on his lips. She enjoyed life, family members and many friends and was always there to brighten the lives of others. All who knew her, loved her. There was nothing she liked better than an interesting conversation with her daughter, Tania or a good (or new) friend; she could have an engaging conversation with anyone really! She thrived on the exchange of interesting (or provocative or radical or creative) ideas with her friends and family and Magda's smile would light up their day. It was often said that there wasn't a stranger that she didn't know-or a smile kept to oneself. Magda's (Mami's) indomitable spirit encouraged her family and friends to persist in the face of many struggles. She will deeply be missed but never forgotten. She was a person of faith and lived life helping others around her.
MAMI WE LOVE YOU ALL THE WAY TO HEAVEN AND BACK...……...FOR ETERNITY!!!!

Tia I remember the trips we use to take traveling around state to state. You would make me laugh and feed me good food too. And helping you move we would work hard doing it but at the end we would make fun of the things we did to get it done. I enjoyed those times. You where another mother to me. I will never forget you Tia. May God Bless you I will always love you. Mi Tia Magda
