Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Esperanza (Hope) Sanchez Narvaiz, age 74, of Wyoming, went to be with the Lord, surrounded by her loving children on Thursday, May 6, 2021.  She was born on May 24, 1947.


She was preceded in death by her loving daughter, Celestina; sister, Gloria; brothers, David, Tony and Nahom.


Hope loved the Lord, her family, friends, children, flowers, and her garden.  Her favorite times were when her family and great-grandchildren came to visit.  She was a Proverbs 31 woman who never knew a stranger, she herself was “more precious than gold.”  Hope was a true woman of faith, that and the Love of the Lord were beyond measure.


She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Paul Narvaiz Sr.; sons, Paul Jr. (Zenda) and Ray (Stephanie); nine grandchildren; ten precious great-grandchildren; three sisters; and one brother.

Cremation arrangements are entrusted to Michigan Cremation & Funeral Care, Grand Rapids, (616) 452-3006.
