She was an active & pious member of Iglesia de Dios Pentecostal-Ebenezer where she served as a secretary and youth teacher, pastored by Rev. Jose Morales, Rev. Laureano, Rev. Olivera and Rev.

To her children, she was the greatest of mothers and closest of friends. To her grandchildren, she was a mediator, facilitator of fun and learning, and maker of precious memories. To her siblings and close relatives, a confidant and breath of fresh air. To her husband, his one and only soul mate. She loved to bake and cook but her greatest joy in life was being a mother and grandmother. Aida was a loving, caring, kind and nurturing wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. She was a treasure to all who knew her. She will be forever missed by her friends and family.

I have so many memories with Uncle Eli and Titi Aida at Abuelita's house in Lorain, and I always looked forward to our visits when we would drive to Florida to visit in the summer. You both will always have a special place in my heart. Please accept my most heartfelt sympathies, and I love you both very much ♥

He pensado mucho para llamarte, yo se lo que es perder a un ser querido. Para mi pareceme ver a Nephtali, y siempre estara en mi corazon. Tu sabes que el te apreciaba mucho. No tengo palabras para expresar mis sentimientos. Nos queda la esperanza que estan con nuestro Padre Celestial. Continuemos orando los unos por los otros porque pronto sonara la trompeta y seremos levantados para morar eternamente con nuestro Padre Celestial.

Te quiero mucho. Tu hna. Ana Luz.

My fondest memories with my Tia Aida and Tio Eli took place in Sheffield Township at their Clinton home. That was one of our refuge spots for us kids growing up. We would sneak over to their home in the evenings and have a blast playing cards and smacking that Cue-ball ‘till the wee hours. The teasing, joking and laughter was abundant not to mention a piece of well placed advice thrown in here and there by them.

Tia will leave a void in many, but the beautiful memories made over the years will flow abundant. Her love, spirit, strength and generosity will not be forgotten. Know that she will always be there, in your hearts, watching over you and guiding.

In God’s Hands
May She Rest In Peace

Our Love, Prayers and Deepest Condolences

I'm glad to have known you, to have had you by my side as a teenager helping me seek God and to later have you as my Matron of Honor in my wedding. I will forever cherish those memories, your kind smile and your loving hugs.

Our dear sweet Aida,
What wonderful memories I have working with you hand in hand at Lincoln School. Your love of children and compassion to the students you worked with was evident daily in your job. It was nice sharing international recipes with each other, learning about each other’s nationality. Thanks for being there for me to help me educating children. Thank you for the fond memories and a lasting friendship.
