October 20, 1949 - March 24, 2019
Carmela Hernandez age 69, mother of 10 children and grandma of 22 grandchildren and 8 great grandkids. She was a loving person who opened her door to anyone even those who were not her own. Carmela would always think of others, she would always put everyone else's needs before her own. She would give food, clothing and blankets for those in need. Carmela raised her children to love and give the way she did which is why there is abundance of love within her own family. Carmela also had a fun side to her. She was always the life of the party. She loved her time at the casino and would play poker every weekend with her family. Carmela 's home was open 24 hours a day and became everyone's favorite place to be. No invite was ever needed and no entrance fee was ever required. We all saw Carmela 'a house as a second home where we would just catch up on the lives of others and share good times together. Carmela was the host of just about every special moment any of us had ever experienced and asked for nothing in return but to share it with you. Her kindness has influenced generations of children, and not just from within her family. She opened her arms and doors to anyone needing a break from the hardships of life. Underneath her kind heart and welcoming personality Carmela was fighting her own battles. In 2001 Carmela was diagnosed with cancer. For 17 years she put on a brave face while she fought for her life. Even in her last days she continued to fight for one last moment to spend with her loved ones. Unfortunately she lost her battle to cancer but she won in life. Viewing Thursday March 28,2019 4:00P.M.-7:00 P.M.
