MARTIN, Aurora, 86, longtime resident of Tampa for 52 years, died peacefully in her sleep on August 25, 2014, with her family by her side. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 65 years, Angel Martin, Sr., and by her parents, Camilo Fernandez and Maria Mendez. She is survived by her daughter, Lourdes, and her husband, LTC (Ret) William R. Kilbourn, of Tampa; her son, Angel Martin, Jr., of Spring Hill; granddaughter, Desiree K. Trister, and her husband, Dr. Andrew Trister, of Seattle, WA; nephew, Fermin Martin, and his wife Maggie; her great-nieces, Melissa Martin and Melanie Martin, all of Tampa. Aurora was a kind and loving human being whose priorities in life were God, family, friends, and community. She devoted her life to her husband and family and set an indelible example for them because of her integrity, honesty, indomitable spirit, but also for her graciousness, sense of humor, ever-present smile, and enjoyment of life. Aurora worked tirelessly to help the Hispanic-American community in the Tampa area during the last 50 years, especially to assist families and charities in need. For this reason, she was greatly admired by all who knew her. She will be greatly missed by her entire family, who cherish the many wonderful memories they shared with her throughout her life. Funeral services will be held at 11 am Friday, August 29, 2014, at Garden of Memories Mausoleum, 4207 E. Lake Avenue, Tampa, FL 33610 (3 story Mausoleum on the South side of East Lake Avenue).
