Armida was born in Sinaloa, Mexico on November 21, 1941 as Maria Armida Serrano Lopez. She was commonly known as Armida and by her siblings as “Chachita”. She was the eldest of eleven siblings. Armida came to this country in her twenties and worked as a seamstress in Downtown Los Angeles. She met her future husband, Ramon Paredes Miramontes in a park in Los Angeles. Soon after they married and started a family. They had a total of three children, Sandra, Ramon and Fidencio. They originally lived in the city of Commerce until 1978 and then moved to Rosemead. The Rosemead residence was known as the “family hub”. Family would visit weekly if not daily. Armida was warmly regarded by her siblings as their “Second Mother”. She was greatly loved and cherished by everyone. Armida had many great qualities. She was a master Seamstress, amazing Cook and avid Gardner who could nurture any dying plant to life. Armida was such a generous and giving person. There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do to help you. If you needed a place to stay for a day, a week or a few months, her home was always open. It was very hard for her to say “No” unless you were one of her children. Armida’s strength truly was in the God whom she continually trusted in. Armida was widowed in March 2016. At that time her health had already severely declined with a diagnoses of post stroke dementia. Over the next few years, her health would continue to decline and worsen. The family was hopeful that her health would possibly stabilize that they could continue to enjoy her presence a little longer. God knew that Armida was beginning to really suffer and at the age of seventy-six the Lord took her home to be with Him. We are thankful to our, Lord Jesus Christ that He gave us such a special Sister, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Aunt and friend. She will be greatly missed and always remembered.

Armida nació en Sinaloa, México el 21 de noviembre de 1941 como María Armida Serrano López. Ella era comúnmente conocida como Armida y por sus hermanos como "Chachita". Ella era la mayor de once hermanos. Armida llegó a este país en sus veinte años y trabajó como costurera en el centro de Los Ángeles. Conoció a su futuro esposo, Ramon Paredes Miramontes en un parque en Los Ángeles. Poco después se casaron y comenzaron una familia. Tenían un total de tres hijos, Sandra, Ramón y Fidencio. Originalmente vivieron en la ciudad de Commerce hasta 1978 y luego se mudaron a Rosemead. La residencia de Rosemead era conocida como el "centro familiar". La familia lo visitaría semanalmente si no todos los días. Armida fue calurosamente considerada por sus hermanos como su "Segunda Madre". Ella fue amada y apreciada por todos. Armida tenía muchas cualidades excelentes. Ella era una maestra costurera, increíble cocinera y ávida Gardner que podía alimentar cualquier planta moribunda a la vida. Armida fue una persona tan generosa y generosa. No había nada que ella no haría para ayudarte. Si necesitabas un lugar donde quedarte por un día, una semana o unos meses, su casa siempre estaba abierta. Fue muy difícil para ella decir "No" a menos que usted fuera uno de sus hijos. La fuerza de Armida estaba verdaderamente en el Dios en quien ella confiaba continuamente. Armida quedó viuda en marzo de 2016. En ese momento su salud ya había disminuido severamente con un diagnóstico de demencia post apoplejía. En los próximos años, su salud continuará disminuyendo y empeorando. La familia tenía la esperanza de que su salud se estabilizaría para poder seguir disfrutando de su presencia un poco más. Dios sabía que Armida estaba empezando a sufrir realmente y, a la edad de setenta y seis años, el Señor la llevó a su casa para estar con él. Estamos agradecidos a nuestro Señor Jesucristo de que nos dio una Hermana, Madre, Abuela, Bisabuela, Tía y amiga tan especiales. Será muy extrañada y siempre recordada.
