Our beloved and cherished mother, Nayade Hernandez, peacefully passed away and went to be with our Lord on September 3, 2023, at the age of 87.
Born in Güines, Cuba, Nayade’s life was a testament to resilience, love, caring and the nurturing of others. Nayade’s proudest and most enduring roles were that of devoted wife and caring mother. She dedicated herself to loving her husband and raising her four sons with guidance, love, and support.
Nayade Hernandez was preceded in death by her loving father Arturo Hernandez, mother Odette Granda, her loving husband Carlos Hernandez, and her brother Arturo Hernandez.
Nayade is survived by her four devoted sons, Carlos Jr. (Angie), Lester (Tammy), Edgar (Kim), and Alex (Tara); her grandchildren Thomas, Michael (Lisa), Shannon, Ashley, Anthony (Susan), Alison, Alysa and Elena, Emily (Cameron), Eric (Nicey), Brooke (Ramonte), Casey, Robbie (Brookelynn), Josh and Sam; and her great grandchildren Aubrey, Kacey, Lizzy, Shaelynn (RJ), Brieanna, Mia, Ava, Blakely, Bridge, Caleb and Cheyenne. She also leaves behind many relatives and close friends who will forever cherish the impact she had on their lives. Nayade’s memory will live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. We will carry forward her legacy of resilience, love, and the pursuit of knowledge.
