Aminta was a loving mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a dear friend to so many. She was a great woman who enjoyed the simple things in life. She loved playing cards and dominoes and was very talented when it came to quilting and crocheting. She loved her family and was happiest when she was around them, cooking their favorite dishes and sharing special moments together. She will be remembered as a woman who was filled with love and joy. She was always very nurturing, companionate, and giving. She was a faithful follower of Jesus Christ and was a fierce prayer warrior, always putting the needs of others before her own. She is the epitome of Proverbs 31. Although she is gone, her memory, warmth and life lessons will live in our hearts forever.
