Irma Gutierrez Cortez 05/25/1940-01/29/2021
On Friday January 29, 2021, our beloved Angel Irma Gutierrez Cortez, was called home by our Lord in Heaven at the age of 80. Although our hearts are breaking, she is now resting with our God. Her unconditional love and loyalty to her family and friends will always be missed and never be forgotten. She was our Mexican Marilyn Monroe. Her charismatic energy will forever be remembered with laughter and tears. She loved her family and friends with tremendous vigor, and she took no bull from anyone. She taught us how love and forgiveness was the key to living a beautiful life. She lived her life the way she wanted and in her own terms. May you rest in peace and guide us in spirit. Her devotion to help others will live on through her family for generations to come. Your family and friends will forever keep you in our hearts.
