Candelaria, Vera

Vera Candelaria, 77, the heart of our family has gone home to the Lord. Our beloved mother and grandmother passed away on June 17, 2016. She was born in Denver, Colorado on March 20, 1939 to Amalia (Mollie) and Leo C. Martinez.

She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband of 57 years, Gino and granddaughter, Jeanie.

She is survived by her children Dianna and husband Monico, David and Judy; six grandchildren; seven great- grandchildren; and one great-great- grandchild.

She retired from Lovelace in 1989. She loved spending time with her family, and her beloved dog. She enjoyed knitting, sewing, cooking, singing in the choir at her parish, and telling funny jokes. Vera was a wonderful caring person and will be greatly missed.

Mass will be celebrated at St Edwin Catholic Parish, 2105 Barcelona Rd. S.W. on Friday, June 24th, 2016. Rosary at 9:30 am, funeral Mass at 10:00 am. Interment will follow at Mt. Calvary Cemetery, 1900 Edith Blvd N.E. You will be in our hearts forever.
