Milagros Quesada Obituary
Milagros Quesada

Our beautiful and beloved wife, mother, sister, "Buelin" and friend, Milagros Antonia Agostini de Quesada passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on September 5, 2018 at her home in Akron, Ohio, following her brave and admirable nine year fight with cancer.

Born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, to Jose Antonio and Elba Agostini, she spent her early years in Puerto Rico, leaving briefly at just 16 years of age to pursue her passions and earn her bachelor's degree in Music at the University of Illinois - Chicago. Upon graduating, she returned and began her career as a music educator. Beautiful both inside and out, she was crowned Carnaval queen and third-runner-up in the Miss Puerto Rico pageant. Still, brighter than her beauty was the brilliance of her mind and spirit, and her love for music. This commitment to teaching and lifelong learning led her to a master's degree and later a Doctorate in Music Education from Kent State University where she went on to teach, write, and serve. In 2015, Milagros retired from Kent State University as an Associate Professor of Music after 23 years of inspiring countless young minds and touching the hearts of musicians who all shared her incredible passion for music.

Milagros is survived by her beloved and devoted husband, Antonio; her daughter, Marival (John); grandchildren, Gionni and Alessandra; sister, Mary; brother, Reynaldo; and countless dear friends who were also her family.

Our profound loss is lessened only with the comfort we find in knowing that she is joyfully greeted in heaven by her parents and brother, Jose Antonio, who preceded her in death. Milagros' peace and strength were deeply rooted in her faith. We know the gift of Milagros' life and her spirit will be forever carried forward by those who loved her.

Friends may call at Hummel Funeral Home, 500 East Exchange Street, Akron, 44304 on Tuesday, from 4 to 7 p.m. A Funeral Mass will be held on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at 10 a.m. at St. Bernard Catholic Church, 44 University Ave., Akron, 44308. Interment in Rose Hill Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, we humbly ask that you celebrate Milagros' life and love of animals with a donation to One of a Kind Pets.
