Blanca Herminia Vega de Guerra

Blanca Herminia Vega de Guerra, de 70 años de edad, fue al encuentro con el Señor el día 4 de abril de 2021.  Blanca nació en Caracas, Venezuela y fue la hija de Diana Ramírez y de Juan Manuel Vega.

A cualquiera que haya tenido la dicha de conocerla le consta que causaba un impacto profundamente positivo a los 15 minutos de conocerla. 

Amó, rió y vivió con intensidad. 

Blanca fue la adorada esposa de Francisco, el amor de su vida desde que él se fijó en ella cuando apenas tenía 7 años de edad.  Su historia de amor empezó con un primer beso que se dieron a los 18 años.  

Fue una madre extraordinaria para sus hijos, Mónica, Maite y Tony. Siempre les enseñó con el ejemplo, con la práctica y con el amor incondicional por los valores de la familia, de la fe, el perseguir los sueños sin importar los obstáculos que encontraran en el camino.

Estricta, tradicional y fiel a su crianza como un pilar de fortaleza para quien la familia siempre estaba de primero. 

Amaba su rol de abuela como nadie.  No resulta para nada difícil imaginarla siendo la mejor la abuela, la abuela más chévere de todas. 

Como suegra, Blanca trató a los esposos y esposa de sus hijos como sus propios hijos.  Su disciplina y coraje eran acompañados de respeto y amor.  Su sonrisa, así como sus gestos grandes y pequeños, tienen un lugar especial en sus corazones.

Su mística y ética de trabajo fue palpable en sus carreras tanto como abogada como educadora en su país natal, Venezuela.  Causando siempre un impacto positivo hacia el futuro y en lo correcto. 

Se realizará un sepelio católico a las 7p.m. el día jueves 8 de abril en la Capilla de Bright Funeral Home con el Pastor Bill John Acosta-Escobar de St. Catalina de Sienna.

A la Señora Guerra le sobreviven su esposo,  Francisco Guerra, sus hijos; Mónica, Maite, Tony, sus seis nietos; Kamila, Daniel, Sophia, Pierina, Raphael y Stefania. Del mismo modo, le sobreviven sus hermanos: Mireya, Manuel Antonio +, Ana Lucia, Maria Eugenia, Carmen Cecilia, Rosa Margarita, Teresa Ines, Jose Francisco y Jorge Miguel .
