|Birth: ||Oct. 25, 1907|
|Death: ||Jan. 1, 2000, USA|
Born in Coamo, Puerto Rico.
Beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and matriarch of the Van Brackle family.
"To say the least, my grandmother was an amazing woman. She sacrificed so much to help my mom raise me. I am extrememly grateful for so many things she did for me. She encouraged me to learn Spanish well, and it is thanks to her that I am able to communicate fluently. It is thanks to her that I learned to be giving and compassionate and always remember my roots. Thanks to her, I have pursued my dreams with ardent fervor. It is also thanks to her that I learned to be the independent young man that I am today. If I could nominate a saint in heaven today, it would be her - I was blessed to have her in my lifetime."
-- Hector Chavez, 11 September 2005
FACT: During her lifetime, she was intrigued by the belief that she would never live to see the year 2000. This is a sad irony considering the day she entered eternal life.
God bless you "guelita" :)
