In the early morning of June 21ST 2021 at about 5:13a.m, God called upon an angel to carry our mother, Ester Armelinda Jimenez, home to heaven. After a fierce battle for her life, this courageous warrior fell; she fought with every ounce of strength so that she could stay here with her beloved family and many times said she did not want to go, but ultimately the strain was just too much, and she knew and did not want to see us suffering watching her suffer. She took the angel’s hand and flew away to heaven. Turning back just one more time to tell her children at her bedside that she loved them all.
Ester Armelinda Jimenez or “Meli” as all her family preferred to call her except those that had the privilege to call her MOM was born on May 6, 1954, in Douglas, Michigan to Josefa Torres and Rodolfo Vasquez. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, friend. She cared for and helped everyone she loved. Taught us to be strong and always have faith in Jehovah God. Adamant in her belief until the very end.
Ester is survived by her children, Hector Jimenez Jr and wife Carolina, Jose R Jimenez and wife Patricia, Patricia Jimenez White, Victoria Jimenez Brown, Rachel Jimenez Callaway, Daniel Jimenez and fiancée Alma; grandchildren, Ashley N Jimenez and husband Ricky, Hector Jimenez III and wife Kayla, Jonathan Andrew Jimenez, Tiger Danell Kain Brown and partner Kaly, Kevin Alexander White Jr, Ricardo Cerda Jr, Jordan Devon’tae McWright, Alexandra Jade Anastasia Gonzales, Noel Alex Jimenez, Adam Jay Gonzales Jr, and Zarita Anais Jimenez; great-grandchildren, Kailyn Janae Brown, Adriana Marie Cerda, Avery Nicole Moreno and Mila Blake Jimenez.

Jimenez; siblings, Armando Vasquez, Minerva Orozco, Maria Negrete, Maria Garcia, Genoveva Cruz, Rodolfo Vasquez; and numerous nieces and nephews; and grandchildren by marriage Cristina Yeverino, Andres Yeverino and Nadia Briones.
