Nydia A. M. Ramirez
Nydia was born on April 24, 1924 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She passed away September 4th, 2013 at 11:05 AM. She had a daughter, Ann and a son, Henry. She was married to Henry Ramirez Sr for over 40 years. The whole family is from Argentina and immigrated to the United States in the late 50’s. Henry Sr passed away of cancer in 1992 and so Nydia lived the last 20 or so years with her daughter, Ann and her son-in-law, Ed and her grandson, Jamie whom she loved very dearly. She was a devoted mother and wife with a very traditional upbringing and always doing things for the family. She loved the beaches, especially in Hawaii, which had become a regular yearly visiting site over the years for the family.
In the beginning of April of this year, Nydia had to be admitted to a nursing home with relunctance by her and by the family as well, but something that had finally become necessary. A few weeks later on April 25, Ann passed away in her sleep. She was 55 years old. It can be said with no uncertaintly that the news of her daughter passing broke her heart and her will to live. Her health quickly deteriorated over the months that followed till she passed away in September, a few days before Henry Sr. had passed 21 years earlier. She is survived by her son, Henry, her grandson Jamie and first cousin, Dario Micheri and his children and grand children. Her ashes along with Ann’s will be dispersed over the ocean in Hawaii.
Very lovingly-written obituary! I agree that the tragic and untimely death of her daughter broke Nydia’s heart and broke her will to live. We are gladdened to know that Henry Sr, Nydia’s & Ann are together again without pain and all of the other challenges of mortal life that they all experienced.
Sweet Henry. Reading this lovely words, brought such wonderful memories flooding back to me. Your family has always been such a joy in my entire life. Such beautiful souls. Life is a mystery but we make the best of what we receive and your family definitely appreciated every gift. Those memories will always be close in my heart and make up a piece of who I am. Knowing that their ashes will be scattered in Hawaii and that is where I am now, gives me a tranquil peace. I love you and am here for you. xo
