Guillermina was a devout catholic to the Lord and St. Jude. She was a mother of officially 3 but a loving 2nd mother to many. She would light up any room when she walked in. Her laughter, her smile and flirtatious eyes are irreplaceable. You weren't a stranger for long once you met her. You became "mijo" or "mija" within minutes of meeting her. Guillermina loved planting in her garden and cleaning her house, “her house was spotless”. She was small in size but was strong in spirit and heart. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who will be dearly missed. To share an online condolence, logon to www.fifefuneralhome.com
