Obituary

Mima, 68, falleció 2/27/2022 aquí en Charlotte rodeada de sus seres más queridos.

Mima nació en 9/23/1953 en Havana Cuba, sus padres Verónica Franco y Silvestre Valera le dieron todo el amor merecido en vida. En especial su mamá, Verónica, quien veía a todos sus 13 hijos como la luz de sus ojos.

Mima era una mujer encantadora en todos los aspectos. Fue una madre ejemplar, la mejor esposa de todas, una excelente amiga, y una abuela y bisabuela que apapachaba a sus nietos y bisnietos. Fue una mujer que siempre se centró en su familia. Todo lo que ella hacía era para que su familia estuviera mejor.

Mima desde niña siempre fue una mujer muy madura, independiente, y luchadora. Al ver una madre que necesitaba el apoyo de sus hijos, mima empezó a trabajar a una temprana edad. Junto a los consejos y apoyo de su mamá y hermanos mayores que fueron también como sus padres, mima pudo crecer una mujer de bien. Siempre estuvo dispuesta a ayudar a su familia. El poco dinero que ganaba era para aportar a su casa llena de amor. Tanto trabajó y luchó que se gano su puesto reconocido en los Hotel Parca y Hotel Lincoln en Cuba.

Mima tuvo 6 hijos cual eran la razón para su vivir Roberto, Osmar, Lazarita, Yadira, Natasha, y Arquelis.

En el 1994, emigro de Cuba a los EEUU con su esposo Vicente y varias personas más. En ese transcurso tan duro de su vida, pudo conocer a muy buenas amistades.

Pasado los años ella siempre tuvo a su familia presente. Se preparo mucho para hacerse ciudadana sin saber inglés y de esa manera poder traer a sus hijos más rápido.

Tanto trabajó y se le cumplió sus deseos que en los años del 2008-2009 pudo traer a 3 de sus hijos Roberto, Osmar, y Yadira. Eso llenó su corazón de tanta felicidad y se sintió más tranquila ya que su familia se estaba completando en EE.UU.

Mima siempre será recordada como la Reyna de esta familia. Siempre con mucha humildad, amor, y ternura.

En 3/5 de 10 AM a 1 PM estaremos juntos para recordar a esta gran señora en Carolina Funeral Services, tal y como era ella - Feliz, alegre, divertida que solo de llegar alegraba los días de las demás personas. Muchas gracias por compartir este tiempo con nuestra familia.

Mima, 68, passed away 2/27/2022 here in Charlotte surrounded by her loved ones.

Mima was born 9/23/1958 to Veronica Franco and Silvestre Valera. Who loved her with everything during her lifetime. Especially by her mom, who saw all her 14 children as the light of her eyes.

Mima was a loving woman in all aspects. A wonderful mother, the best wife there was, an excellent friend, and an amazing grandma and great grandma who spoiled her grandkids and great grandkids. She was a woman who loved her family and always put them first. Everything she did in life was so that her family could be better.

Ever since Mima was a child she was mature, independent, and a warrior. As she saw that her mother needed the support from her older children, she started working at a young age. Along with her mother’s advices and support from her and her older brothers, who were like a father to her, she was able to become an excellent woman. She was always willing to help her family. The little money that she would work for, was given to her household full of love. She worked and fought very hard that she had a recognizable position at the hotels Parca and Lincoln in Cuba.

Mima has 6 children that were the reason of her life. Roberto, Osmar, Lazarita, Yadira, Natasha, and Arquelis were the true loves of her life.

In 1994 she emigrated from Cuba to the US with her husband Vicente and various people. In that difficult course of his life, he was able to meet very good friends.

Over the years she always had her family present. She prepared a lot to become a citizen without knowing English and that way she could bring her children faster.

She worked so hard that her wishes were fulfilled in the years 2008-2009. She was able to bring 3 of her children Roberto, Osmar, and Yadira. That filled her heart with so much happiness and peace since her family was being reunited in the US.

Mima will always be remembered as the Queen of this family. Always with great humility, love, and tenderness.
