Mom, I will always remember your love, strength, tenacity, caring, religious belief, and the list goes on. A women of many traits including baking, cooking, upholstery, masonry, quilting, knitting, sewing, and gardening. In my eyes there was nothing you could not do.
So much of you lives through your children and their children. You will always be in our hearts and prayers. We love you and miss you so much. The comfort is that you are in heaven with golden wings watching over all of us. Please know you did an excellent job here on earth. We are very proud of you.
The world is a better place because of you and we are so grateful.

I have such fond memories of Antonia. I am from Iceland and she was the one who was by my side when I first married her brother Leo. I was new to this country and the Mexican-American traditions. Antonia always interpreted for me to understand so I would be included the conversations. She often said, "speak English for Margret."
We had a close relationship as we both had children and got together often, so our children could play together. No matter where our family traveled with the military we kept in contact through Christmas cards and phone calls. I feel blessed with many sweet memories with my loving friend and family, Antonia. Prayers for your lovely family ♥️🙏🏽 God bless

Thank you for being such a great mom.
You always made the best of every situation.
You set an example for us all by living by faith in Jesus for all things. I know you loved us all so very much. You are welcomed into heaven and reunited with Papí and your children that have gone before you.
You are now looking down on us and smiling.
You have raised a wonderful family and mission is complete.
You will forever live in our hearts and I know we will see you again in heaven.
Love you forever and always.
Your daughter Arlene.

We love you grandma, forever and always.
