On October 5, 1960 a gracious spirit was born into this world. Yanira Velasco, 53 was born in the small city of Pasaquina, El Salvador, the oldest of four children, to Maria and Dagoberto Vasquez.

Her life began in El Salvador with her 3 siblings Rufina, Elmer, and Evelyn. There, she went to school, graduated college, and began her family with Roberto Velasco.

Throughout her life Yanira was a humble and selfless person. She radiated life and spirit in any room that she entered, and every encounter she made with others was always for friendship and support. As a hardworking mother, she put forth all her effort to nurture and foster her children Alex, Rebeca, Chris, Daniel, and Nicolas.

She was a devout Catholic and found spiritual support within that community. Her life was dedicated to serving God, her kids, her family, and anyone who needed a lending hand.

In the last months of her life, she battled cancer, a disease that tested her faith and her family's faith as well. However, this challenge ultimately united her family even more.

On August 4, 2014 she passed away. A well loved person, she will forever be remembered in the hearts and minds of her family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors as a beloved wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt and, most importantly, a friend.

Yanira Velasco nació el 5 de Octubre de 1960 en Pasaquina, un pequeño pueblo de El Salvador. Sus padres, Dagoberto y Maria Vásquez, cultivaron siempre en ella el amor a la familia, la humildad y el servicio a los demás. Y así siempre lo demostró con sus hermanos Rufina, Elmer y Evelyn.

A temprana edad formó una bella familia con Roberto Velasco y juntos, inculcarían su amor a sus 5 hijos Alex, Rebeca, Christopher, Daniel, y Nicolás. Siempre llena de vida, Yanira acudía a cualquier necesidad de su familia. Fue una mujer con un corazón bondadoso, dispuesta siempre a dar de sí sin alguna excusa.

Durante su vida encontró siempre un gran apoyo en la Iglesia y en los hermanos de su comunidad. Y de igual manera, ellos encontraron en ella una amiga servicial lista para ayudar en cualquier actividad o necesidad.

En sus últimos meses, Yanira se enfrentó contra el cáncer, una enfermedad que puso a prueba su espíritu luchador y alegre pero a la vez resaltó sus virtudes del amor a su familia en los peores momentos. Siempre con perseverancia y serenidad, se aseguró que su familia se apoyara mutuamente. En este tiempo de dificultad, se dedicó a la oración por su familia y su comunidad. Jamas perdió aquella alegría y fuerza heróica que nos deja como legado.

Toda persona que tuvo el privilegio de conocerla, descubrió que Yanira fue una mujer fácil de querer. Se fue al cielo el 4 de Agosto del 2014. Esperamos la dicha de reunirnos con ella en el Cielo.
