"Tita" was a very loving mother and grandmother with a great sense of humor. She was a very generous and patient person who made time to take care of anyone who needed her and she became a "second mom" to many. She had a strong work ethic and supported her family. Her optimism was contagious and she gave those around her a sense of well-being and security. Her mere presence could change and uplift the whole room with her smile.
