Veronica Jimenez was called to Heaven on Sunday, August 29, 2021. “Vero” or “Verito” as she was affectionately known, was a devoted mother, sister, aunt, wife and friend.
Vero was a kind and giving person who had a wonderful sense of humor. Vero could always be counted on for a laugh. She loved being around friends and family. When facing difficult situations, she tried to remain positive and held onto her faith to see her through tough times.
Vero worked as a paraprofessional at Bonnie Garcia Elementary School for thirteen years. Her nurturing personality made her an asset to the pre-kinder and kinder teams and students. Vero took pride in her work and realized the importance of working with young students.
Vero was a firm believer in telling people that you love them because you never know if it may be the last time. We should all try to follow her example. If you love someone, tell them…because hearts are often broken by words left unspoken. Vero’s passing was unexpected and she will be terribly missed but we have gained an Angel to watch us from above. She will be in our hearts forever.
She is preceded in death by her parents Octaviano Sr. and Maria de la Luz Gutierrez, father-in-law Pablo Jimenez Sr, brother-in-law Hector Saucedo and grandmother Aurora Soliz.
