Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Carmen passed to her deep sleep on February 15,2018. She is survived by her husband Humberto, they were married for 35 years. They had three daughters, Maritza, Jeneli, and Jasmine.

Her daughters were her ultimate love and joy. Also surviving is her dog Niko, she liked to spoil and cuddle. Carmen came from a large family. Carmen loved to shop. Often looking for another “percalito”. Some of her likes included getting her nails done, sleeping, listening to music, watching t.v. and spending time with her family. She was also very hospitable, she liked to invite people over and make them food and enjoy their company.

Carmen was sweet, loving and often put the needs of others before her own. Her positivity and caring personality made it that many found her comforting. Her positive attitude came from what she would say “it’s because I read my bible everyday”. She would quote Psalm 55:22 ‘Throw your burden on Jehovah, And he will sustain you. Never will he allow the righteous one to fall.’

Her faith in Jehovah is an example for us all. Her zeal for commenting in meetings was impressive. Her motivation for spreading and planting seeds of Jehovah’s name brought her happiness.

Carmen was loved by many and will be greatly missed. We know that with Jehovah’s promises of a paradise, we will see her beautiful and contagious smile again. 

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 24 at 4:00 p.m. at Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses,
 4101 52nd St SW, Grandville, MI.

Honoring her wishes cremation will take place. To send a message of sympathy to the family, sign Carmen’s online guest book, or to share a favorite memory, please visit:

‘Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life’

Carmen descanso en un sueño profundo 15 de Febrero 2018. Sobrevive su esposo Humberto, juntos celebraron 35 años de matrimonio. Tuvieron 3 hijas Maritza, Jeneli, y Jasmine. Sus hijas fueron el mayor amor y alegría de su vida. También sobrevive su mascota Niko, con quien se acurrucaba. Carmen vino de una familia grande. A Carmen le encantaba ir de compras. Siempre buscando otro ‘percalito’. Le gustaba hacerse las uñas, dormir, escuchar música, mirar la televisión, y pasar tiempo con su familia. Carmen era hospitalaria. Le gustaba invitar a personas hacerles de comer y pasar el rato con ellos. Carmen era cariñosa y afectuosa. Ella ponía las necesidades de los demás antes de los de ella. Con su positividad y su personalidad cariñosa, muchos la llegaron apreciar. Su positividad venía porque siempre decía “Es que yo leo mi Biblia todos los días”. Ella citaba Salmos 55:22 en donde menciona ‘Arroja tu carga sobre Jehová mismo,y él mismo te sustentará.Nunca permitirá que tambalee el justo’. Su fe en Jehova fue y será un ejemplo para todos. El celo que mostraba con sus comentarios era impresionante. Su motivación en sembrar semillas para dar testimonio fue algo admirable. Servir a Jehova le trajo mucha felicidad. Carmen fue muy amada y va a ser muy extrañada. Sabemos que con las promesas de Jehova de un paraíso, pronto miraremos su bella y contagiosa sonrisa. 

‘No se maravillen de esto, porque viene la hora en que todos los que están en las tumbas conmemorativas oirán su voz y saldrán, los que hicieron cosas buenas a una resurrección de vida’

Juan 5:28-29a
