Obituary

The Diaz family is saddened to announce the passing of Ana "Ada" Diaz. She passed peacefully at Temple Hospital on May 25, 2020 in Philadelphia, PA at the age of 87.

Ana is survived by her children Maximina, Samuel, Edwin (Naomi), Norma (Dario), Jorge (Lucy), Nereida (Marcos), and Jannette (Carlos). She is preceded in death by her husband Valeriano Diaz Rivera.

Ana was born on May 16, 1933 in Cayey, Puerto Rico to Natividad Vega and Ramon Lopez. She married Valeriano, her first love, in 1952. Over 48 years, they raised their children in a loving home. Ana instilled the values of empathy, kindness, and love in her children.

Ana was an exceptional self-taught seamstress and often created handmade household items for her family during her free time. She was an extremely generous individual who deeply loved her 11 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great-grandchildren. "Mama" was always eager to have them in her home where she'd have their favorite meals cooked and ready to enjoy upon arrival. She devoted her life to be a caretaker for her family, most recently her sister Gladys.

Relatives and friends are invited to reach out to the Diaz family during this challenging time. Private family services will be held for Ana Diaz.
