"Mimi" was one of a kind. She had her door open always to everyone in her life. She was never too tired to help anyone and always took time for anyone who walked through her door for coffee or food! She was not only devoted to her family, but to all those she knew. She loved ALL her children, especially her own, and her entire family. She was a very courageous woman who lived a full, exciting, humble, spiritual and impressive life. She touched many lives in this world, more than most people and never met a stranger. She is now reunited with her family in heaven, especially her children and grandchildren and is a guardian angel to all those left behind with her memory. She is now at peace and no longer in pain and will forever be in our hearts. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to First Church of God.
A special thank you to her loving sister, Esther Hobi, Denson Home Health, Davita Dialysis, Dr. Alfredo Nodarse, Dr. Hung Le, Amy Gurnea-Davenport, Helen Mauberger-Gonzales, and to all that took the time to visit, bring food, and called to remember our loving mother.
