On Sunday November 25th, 2018, Mrs. Gonzalez left us to be part of the energy in the universe after a long-term illness. Although she worked primarily in the home, she also worked for Cute Toggs in New Orleans. Mrs. Gonzalez had a vibrant, magnetic personality and a free spirited soul. A kind soft-spoken lady. Her interests included family and friends gatherings, good conversation, laughing, dancing, music, sewing, crocheting, loved traveling and reading, an animal lover. Her charm, sophistication and smile enlightened any given moment. She gave us all such courage, hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life. Mrs. Gonzalez loved spending time with all her grandchildren whether it was teaching them useful knowledge, cooking them their favorite dish or watching the Univision “novelas”. She was a loving caring soul, devoted wife, wonderful mother and friend, always thinking of others, “to know her was to love her”. She will be immensely missed forever by her children, grandchildren, family and her many friends.
