In memory of

Edilma Sierra

April 13, 1931 -  February 23, 2023

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Edilma Sierra (Mami Ima). She was a loving mother, grandma, great grandma, sister and aunt. She is survived by her son Manuel Antonio, her son Hugo Alberto and his wife Mary, by her daughter Carmen Edilma and her husband Nindi, her daughter Laura Beatriz and her husband Mickey, her son-in-law Peter and her daughters Elvia Mercedes and Nohora Patricia.

Mami Ima was devoted to her family. She always had the spirit of an enterprising woman seeking to strengthen the family income in various household activities, including growing flowers, her favorite passion inherited from Grandma Dolores. She began her day singing at five in the morning and singing she went to bed.

Family and friends always enjoyed her fine sense of humor, present even in the last moments of her life, when her funny and timely note mitigated the ailments of her physical condition. Mami Ima began her trip to paradise with full mental lucidity and excellent memory. Days before her departure, her sister from her soul Aunt Beatriz, ended her phone call by telling her : “We will see each other soon in heaven” to which Mami Ima replied: “… but how are we going to recognize each other if we will be a couple of skulls there?”

We would appreciate donations to The Parkinson’s Society of Canada in lieu of flowers.

Mami Edilma, la extrañaremos por el resto de nuestras vidas, siempre la recordaremos por su fortaleza, su labor como esposa, madre, ayudando a su esposo en todo, pero ante todo con su gran humor, cuando me llamaba, me hacía reír con sus anécdotas. Buen viaje al Reino de Dios

Abuelita preciosa, qué alegría haber podido verte y que conocieras a mis chicos (y a Ana en la pancita). Te queremos muchísimo y siempre estarás en nuestros recuerdos y en nuestros corazones.

My dearest grandma, I am so glad we could visit you and that you met my guys (and Ana in the belly). We love you so much, you will always have a place in our memories and our hearts.
