Cel­e­bra­tions All Around

Catron Courier - - Front Page - by Leti­cia In­cre­mona

I had the priv­i­lege of meet­ing a re­ally ex­tra­or­di­nary woman last month. This woman was be­ing cel­e­brated by her fam­ily and friends for her 80th birth­day. I haven't lived here very long and I en­joy watch­ing the bonds long­time com­mu­nity mem­bers have.

This woman's name is Elvira Fer­nan­dez. Ac­cord­ing to what I gath­ered from her son Al­fredo, she was born in Mex­ico in 1936. Elvira came to Amer­ica with her hus­band Mr. Al­fredo Fer­nan­dez in 1986, they have six chil­dren.

As peo­ple came up to cel­e­brate Mrs. Fer­nan­dez, I was in awe of how loved she is. She and her fam­ily have been and con­tinue to be a vi­tal part of this Que­mado fam­ily. Her hus­band worked for Hubbel and Green Cat­tle Com­pany for 30 years! He is sorely missed. Mrs. Fer­nan­dez took a job of­fer from Mrs. Arm­strong to work in the se­nior cen­ter, a job that she en­joyed for eleven years. The com­ments about her loy­alty and de­pend­abil­ity were ad­mirable and to be em­u­lated for sure.

Her fam­ily thanks first and fore­most Je­sus Christ and ev­ery­one who came out to cel­e­brate this amaz­ing woman, wife, mom and friend.
