She was a very strong, loving, caring, and she always had a fighting spirit as the matriarch of the family she was. We will never forget the awesome cook she was. When you would go visit you would never leave hungry because she made sure she feed you. She had the best coffee too. She had many talents like crocheting and she was a seamstress. She was also known for her green thumb. She always had so many plants she loved to tend to her plants. Her favorite birds where the cockatoo. Filomena was an extremely hard worker who cultivated the tobacco and coffee bean fields as a farmer. She was even an entrepreneur who owned a very successful bridal shop where she sold wedding dresses, made all the wedding & sweet 16 arrangements, favors, and bouquets. Even the locals trusted her as the go-to for all your party needs. She enjoyed Latin folk songs in her younger years. She loved to dance, play Dominoes and card games. She also preached the gospel and love to praise the Lord. Frequently invited to preach live on a Spanish radio station. Her love for the Lord was evident in all of her days. Our Mother/Grandmother will be greatly missed. She was certainly a special gift to us from God.
