Aura Amantina RODRIGUEZ

September 16, 1925March 8, 2021

Dr. Aura Amantina Rodriguez Lopez (1921-2021)

She was born in La Vega, Dominican Republic on September 16, 1921, the daughter of Ulysses Rodriguez Nunez and Altagracia Lopez Medina (lovingly called Mama Chicha). She was the sixth child in a family of nine siblings. She died at the age of 99 in Orlando, Florida on March 8th, 2021.

A doctor of dental medicine, a professor and pioneer in microbiology research, a singer, a breast cancer survivor, a caregiver and a Bible scholar. If you would have asked her what was her greatest achievement, she would have said the day she surrendered her life to Jesus Christ. All her professional discoveries paled in comparison to the Truth revealed to her in God’s word. She had the great joy of knowing that all her children and grandchildren walk according to the teachings of Jesus and that her great-grandchildren are being raised with the same hunger.

She will be fondly remembered by her children: Anaura Velázquez (Freddy), Hector Tirado (Anita), and Soraya Kitts; her grandchildren: Michael Tirado, Jonathan Kitts (Shea), Heather Dodge (Justin), Gabriella Ferreira (Rafael), and Christopher Velázquez; her great-grandchildren: Olivia Shannon Kitts, Emma Kate Kitts, Juliette Aura Kitts, Jackson Avery Kitts, Nicole Soraya Dodge, Isaac Warren Ferreira, Grayson Patrick Kitts, Hector Derek Tirado and Levi Rafael Ferreira; her beloved former husband, Hector Vinicio Tirado Javier; and her dear nieces and nephews.

Mi querida Tía Aura. Estaba tan contenta esperando te podría ver pronto con el augurio del comienzo del fin de la terrible pandemia que ha separado tantos seres amados. Tambien mantenía vivo el deseo de la celebración de tu 100 aniversario en Septiembre de este presente año 2021. Pero Dios tuvo otros planes para ti como los tuvo con Mami en Enero 2020, sólo meses antes de su 100 aniversario. Pero mi alma mantiene el ferviente deseo de poder reunirse contigo asi como con Mami y Papi, abuelos, tíos y demás familiares que hemos tenido que ver partir con tanto dolor. Te quiero mucho Tía Aura. ARGENTAIN te extrañarà siempre. (Aqui comparto una foto de cuando cumpliste tus 99 años el 16 de Septiembre del 2020 he hicimos la celebración virtual).

Tia Aura,

Thank you for the loving care you showed us growing up. You taught us so much in word and deed, character traits which you refined in us as we came to fully understand the Scriptures.

In heaven now, I envision you singing in the heavenly choir with the angels in a perfect soprano voice. The angel’s adoration “Holy, Holy, Holy” must be overwhelmingly beautiful with you joining in! I hope the Lord gives me a glimpse of you there.

I love you dearly Tia and hope to be a comfort to the girls and Titico until we all join you in heaven. Besitos. Tu sobrina Zoila

Le damos gracias a Dios por haber permitido que Mamá Aura fuera parte de nuestra familia. Dejando profundas huellas de las enseñanzas de nuestro Señor Jesucristo en nuestras vidas. Por siempre atesoradas en nuestros corazones! Su vida siempre llena de gozo, de apacibilidad, sus consejos llenos de sabiduría eran un ungüento para las nuestras. Fue un regalo de parte de Dios
para mi como pastor y para nuestra manada. Tu legado continúa....

Por siempre en nuestros corazones,

Pastor Ray Colon y congregación

All of my memories of my beloved “ Mama Aura” are those of a precious woman of God! She set such a beautiful example of godliness for us the younger ones. Always, always citing to us God’s counsel and words of encouragement ... (from the Holy Bible of course) of hope...of all the tools that God had given us through His Son live overcoming and triumphant lives. She was an inspiration to all who knew her... and loved her.... she forever marked my life.
We shall meet again, in our eternal home!!

Much love always,
Pastor Liz Colon
