Esperanza "Hope" Ramirez Obituary
Ramirez, Esperanza "Hope"
Our beautiful and beloved wife, mother & grandmother peacefully passed away in the presence of her entire family on June 14th, 2016. She was born on August 13th, 1941 in Valley Falls, Kansas to Benita & Ascension Juarez & was raised in Topeka, Kansas. She married the love of her life, Ygnacio "Toody" Ramirez on Valentine's Day, 1959. She resided in Scottsdale, Arizona since 1977 with her family, including her children Michael, Albert, Joseph, Rosie Ramirez & Lisa Ramirez-Espinosa (Javier). She was extremely proud of her grandchildren (10); Kelly (Pasquale), Christopher (Athina), Matthew, Brittany, Adrienne, Valerie, Emilio, Cruz, Francesca, Liliana & her great-grandchildren (7); Anthony, Annabella, Gabriella, Sophia, Dominic, Lennon with one great-grandson on the way. She is also survived by sisters Lucille Noriega & Catalina Ortiz, both of Topeka, KS; Maria Elena Mosqueda (Pete) of Newton, KS and brother Rito Juarez also of Topeka. She is also thought of as a sister to Victoria Webb (Wilburn) of Mena, AR, Mary Valdivia (Angel), Alexandra Olivia (Joe) & Ruben Ramirez of Topeka, KS. She also adored her 100+ nieces, nephews & God-Children. Hope truly enjoyed life. She especially enjoyed her annual vacations to Acapulco, Mexico with her husband, loved to cook, spend time with her family, dance and to laugh out loud. She had innate creative talent as an acrylic artist and produced beautiful paintings which she shared so lovingly with her family. Her love of music, especially Mariachi music was what kept her smiling even until her last moments. She was the ultimate caregiver and always thought of others before herself. She was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, sister & friend and will be missed tremendously. A full funeral mass will be held in Scottsdale, Arizona at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Scottsdale, AZ on Wednesday, June 29th, 2016 at 10 a.m., with interment following immediately afterwards at St. Francis Catholic Cemetery in Phoenix, Arizona. Memorial Services will be held in Topeka, Kansas at a later date.
