On February 28th, 2014 our loving and much loved Mother and Wife, Nelly Rosario Africa, passed from this Earth into the arms of her next life, leaving behind her two sons, Marlon and Jeffery, her husband Jack, and granddaughter Flora; all of whom are better people today for having had her in our lives.
Born in Antofagasta, Chile on November 3, 1925, she came to America in 1950 to forge a new life. In 1952, while in San Francisco, she met her future husband of 60 years, Jack Africa, and began her new adventure.
Always carrying herself with grace and dignity, she skillfully wove the fabric that held our family together. She was our unsung hero and she will be sorely missed.
