Born Marcelina Lind Cora, May 30, 1924, in the municipality of Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico, loving wife of Aurelio Vega Jiménez, of Oroconis, Puerto Rico, widowed January 6, 1977, daughter of Vicente Lind of Loiza, Puerto Rico, and Juana Cora, of Arroyo, Puerto Rico, sister of Iris and husband Antonio, and aunt of nephews Antonio Junior and Edwin, Mother of Roberto, Gilberto and fiancé Charleta, George, and Aurelio Junior; step mother to Miriam, José, and Laudelino, living over 25 years and caring for the family in Manhattan, New York City, returning to Guayama, Puerto Rico in the summer of 1974, and arriving on April 14, 2011, living her remaining three years in Rialto, California.
Was lovingly known as "Doña Angelina" to her family, neighbors and close friends, and "Abuelita" to her grand children: Gilberto Junior, Antonio and wife Roxanne, Glendon, Glenford, George Junior, Amanda, Maximillian, and great grand children: Jasmine, Syrus, Serene, and Antonio Junior.
Marcelina always lived in the calm peace and tranquilly of nature, surrounding herself with flowers, music, and the Lord our God. She enjoyed singing, dancing, sewing, taking pictures, classical music and movies, television programs such as Novelas, "Don Francisco and El Gordo y la Flaca" and reminiscing on the happy days of her life and family.
She has been an inspiration of strength and determination. A spark of light towards our pursuing our goals as individuals, as well as family, and she will be tremendously missed.
God Bless you "Mami," you leave us now well prepared, as you finally return home to God in heaven.
With everlasting love…. "La Familia"
