Natividad T. Jaimes entered the pearly gates to be with our Lord on Friday, July 13th, 2018. “Nati” was a devoted wife, loving mother, proud grandmother, honored great-grandmother, beloved sister, cherished aunt and trusted friend.
Born to Nicolas and Guadalupe Torres, Nati is preceded in death by her parents and husband, Edmundo M. Jaimes Sr., sisters Lupita Fragoso, Elena T. Martinez, Francis de la Vega and brothers David & Luis Torres. The only surviving sibling that remains is Raul Torres.
Nati’s love was her family and faith in God. She was a pillar of strength, avid prayer warrior and very resilient in her 95 years. Her positive attitude, smile and laugh were contagious. She had a love for dancing and enjoyed spending time with her loved ones sharing stories of good times. Her proudest moments were seeing her children and grandchildren thrive in their accomplishments. She was often overheard talking about their good work ethic and bragged about them taking after her. Nati retired after 50 years serving her community by working at our local bakery Vannie Tilden for Mr. and Mrs. Diego.
Left to cherish her priceless memory are her 7 children: Ed (Lupita), Esther, Eddie (Rachel), Ernie (Estella), Eloy (Katie), Eric (Rob), Enrique – Henry (Nancy). Her 12 grandchildren: Leslie, Jennifer, Michael, Lorraine, Hayver, Eddie, Clarissa, Ernie, Avy, Niki, Jon-Erick and Enrique II. Her 9 great-grandchildren: Daniel and Benji Lopez, Liana Martinez, Cheyenne Wallace, Marcel & Katia Cortinas, Alana & David Torres and Alexandria Eckert and 1 Great-Grand child Axle.
Viewing Services will be held at Darling Mouser on Sunday, July 15th from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. with the Rosary at 7 p.m. Funeral Mass Services will be held on Monday at Saint Mary’s Church at 1:00 pm. Committal services will follow at Buena Vista Burial Park. To honor her request, her 6 grandsons will serve as her pallbearers: Michael Martinez, Hayver Cortinas, Eddie Jaimes, Jon-Erick Jaimes, Enrique Jaimes II and Ernie Jaimes.
My heartfelt condolences to the Jaimes Family on the lost of their beloved mother. May you find peace knowing she has indeed entered the Pearly Gates of Heaven.
I grew up on the corner house of Blanche Street and Victory and have fond memories playing in our street.
