Carmen was a devoted homemaker, mother, and grandmother who was a loyal church parishioner! Her hobbies and interests included cooking, sewing, quilting, working in her yard, and spending time with family and friends; but her favorite hobby was playing BINGO and purchasing PULL TABS. She was a very free-hearted lady, she would give you the shirt off of her back or help anyone in need and that included total strangers. She had a heart as big as they come! She never met a stranger and was constantly cooking food (Tamales was her favorite to cook) or baking something sweet (Cakes or brownies) to donate to any function going on. She really was an Angel here on Earth.
