Ofelia was a God-fearing woman who held on strongly to her faith.  She was an extremely hard-working woman, from raising a large family to working as a seamstress. Ofelia never fell short on exhibiting her love to family and friends.  She loved to give gifts and most often the recipient would know it came from JCPenney’s, as she was their #1 customer.  She loved gardening and had a “green thumb”, enjoyed dancing and had a sense of humor like no other.  Her kindness was often displayed through helping her neighbors.  Above all else she was a very family-oriented woman and was the peace maker, and her love shined through in her amazing cooking.  She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
