Lord of life, and master of our destinies, in your hands we silently place our dearly beloved mother, Ofelia Saenz. May she live eternally in unending peace, in your loving presence, O, Father of mercy.
Ofelia Saenz born on November 05, 1924 left this earth on Wednesday, January 6, 2021 to live eternally in heavenly peace. Our mother is predeceased by her husband and our father Raul Saenz, son David Eliseo Saenz, sisters Alejandrina , Elvira, brothers Jose, Roberto, and Carlos. She is survived by sisters Carmen and Aurora, sister-in-law Delia Hernandez, children Norma Flores (Ben), Berta Saenz, Yolanda Carrillo, Humberto Saenz (Margie), Irma Bocanegra (Jesus), Fr. Jose Saenz, and Sylvia Aguilar (Louie). She is also survived by grandchildren Rachel, Ben, Melissa, Sandra, Benjamin, Joseph, Bernadette, Patricia, Karen, Jonathan, Ryan, and Raul and several great-grandchildren.
Mom was a devoted, dedicated wife and loving parent with a kind heart and endless patience. She lived to serve her family and she did so with passion, love, and a smile. She sang soothing songs to all her grandchildren and remembered birthdays which were always celebrated with a personal “Happy Birthday” serenade. In her later years, Mom enjoyed the fruits of her labor and supported us as we experienced our own trials and challenges in life.
When we needed love the most Mom was always there for us. A warm meal and a heartfelt conversation that included smiles, laughter and sometimes tears were always the perfect remedy to any moment. Mom has served her purpose and a piece of her is in all of us. We now carry the responsibility to pass her legacy on, and as she would want, we will do so with a kind heart, endless patience, love, passion, and a smile.
We appreciate the loving care and support that care -taker Lupe Perales and also The Bartlett Nursing Home staff provided Mom during the last stage of her life.
