Aurora Flores Padron, a devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a cherished soul, peacefully passed away on the Lord's day, Sunday, December 3rd, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of love and resilience that will forever echo in the hearts of those she cherished.
Born on Thursday, July 13th, 1944, Aurora's life was marked by unwavering faith, resilience, and an unshakeable commitment to her family. She entered this world with a purpose, and her devotion to her loved ones was her guiding light.
Aurora is survived by her children: Viola Cortez, Olivia and Bill Clark, Blanca Perez, Cynthia Cortez Burkett, Maria and Bill Pedigo, Melissa Jo and Stacy Thompson, Armando Perez, Eli Zachery Perez, and Isaiah James Herrero.
She is also survived by her siblings: Mike and Sandra Padron, Sulema and Frank Salazar, Arnold and Georgia Padron, Rudy and Ofelia Padron, Diana and Alex Martinez, and Belinda and Martin Sanchez.
Her nurturing spirit extended to her 19 grandchildren, 34 great-grandchildren, who knew her as MoMo, and her numerous nieces and nephews, whom lovingly called her Tia LaLa. Together, they formed a vibrant tapestry of love and laughter that brought immeasurable joy to Aurora's life.
Aurora affectionately named her family her 'Palomia,' derived from the Spanish word 'Paloma,' which translates to Dove in English, endearingly calling them her beloved little doves.
Aurora is preceded in death by her father, Ismael Padron, mother, Petra Flores, and sister, Dolores Galvan.
Aurora's life was a miraculous tale, defying the odds by surviving not one but two 18-wheeler wrecks. She often reflected on these experiences, gracefully praying, "LORD, you left me here for a purpose, use me Father God, open my doors left and right." Her survival against such overwhelming odds stood as a powerful testament to her unshakeable belief in her LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ.
A deeply spiritual woman, Aurora fervently prayed for her family, invoking the LORD's guidance with every heartfelt plea. Her prayers echoed with words of devotion, and her faith was an integral part of her being, guiding her actions and instilling hope in all she touched.
Her unique style was marked by her love for hats and her signature long, beautiful nails, reflecting her vibrant and charming character. She found joy in life's simplest pleasures and embraced her quirks with grace, inspiring all who knew her.
Aurora now rests in eternal peace lovingly watching over all her cherished Palomia. Freed from pain and turmoil, she dwells in the house of the LORD, forever peaceful and enveloped in boundless joy.
The family invites all who knew and loved Ms. Aurora Flores Padron to a celebration of her life on Saturday, December 16, 2023 at Venture Church in Corpus Christi, Texas from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Aurora's Flight of Love and Light:
In skies where stars dance without a care,
I soared above, in angel's air.
Each hat, a crown upon my brow,
With every step, joy echoed loud.
Adorned in colors bright and true,
No pain in stride, I roamed anew.
For all I love, my heart's delight,
In heaven's grace, I shine each night.
When thoughts of me cross your way,
Know love remains, forever to stay.
