Magdalena Auria Hernandez

Bakersfield, CA

On Tuesday, October 30, 2018, Magdalena "Nena" Maldonado Hernandez, loving mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, and friend passed away at her home in Bakersfield, California. She was 40 years of age.

Nena was born on April 6, 1978 in Ventura to Trinidad and Sabino Maldonado. Nena came from a big family having 4 brothers, 4 children of her own and countless nieces, nephew, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

In 1993 Nena had met the love of her life Michael Hernandez Jr. who she was married to for 8 years until 2007 when he was unfortunately murdered. Following the death of her husband she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012. Although Magdalena faced many difficult situations throughout her life it made her the strong princess warrior she was. Her children praised her like a queen and her mother and brothers cherished her with unconditional love. Nena was filled with love and carried a strong presence everywhere she went. After 6 years of fighting stage 4 brain and ovarian cancer she spent her last days at home surrounded by family just as she wished. Now that she is gone, she asks us not to cry, but to be happy for she is now reunited with her husband, father, and many other loved ones that have went before us.
