Marina was a skilled industrial sewing machine operator, retired from Imperial Knitting. Participated in the programs at the United Community Center where she created quilts, taught others to use the sewing machines and created numerous arts and crafts. Marina was an avid gardener, planting her “morning glories” and caring for her garden. Most of all she loved to spend time with family, especially her great-grandchildren, she never missed an opportunity to attend their activities.
We would like to thank the Aurora at Home Hospice program, Community Care and Visiting Angels for their support and guidance in her care till the end of her life. We especially thank Renee Asselin and Dr. Raul Mateo for their loving care of abuelita.
