We remember Nena as a kind-hearted, strong, courageous, generous and compassionate lady who loved her family. Her hobbies included, cooking for small and big gatherings, clothes shopping, and traveling. She taught us to never be afraid of change, to excel in life and to never give up. Nena led the family by example and if you got out of line, she would set you straight. She loved everyone unconditionally, as she would say, my name states, “I’m the Queen.” She was madly in love with her husband, Alfonso they were married 62 years. Nena was a strong and hard-working person who built a beautiful dynasty and taught us the true meaning of love. She will forever be in our hearts and will be greatly missed. We invite family and friends to join us in a celebration of Nena’s life.
