Obituary

Mary Velasquez Espinoza died peacefully on November 24, 2019 surrounded by family. Mary was born on August 15, 1923 and died in Cincinnati, OH of natural causes. She was the beloved wife of the late Alex D.

She was preceded in death by her husband, son, 4 brothers and great grandson.

Mary was a woman who loved to dance, listen to books, and spend time with family. She attended many milestones and events for her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren making each relationship so incredibly special. She always put her family first. Mary was a hard-working woman who paved a path in the hotel service industry, and she was a faith filled woman who turned to the Blessed Mother often in prayer. Mary’s zest for life will be missed but will live on in the legacy she left with her family.
