Hilda Santos, age 82, passed away peacefully at Good Shepherd Hospice on November 25, 2019. She was born on November 6, 1937 in Comerio, Puerto Rico where she met her husband, Tomas Santos, and started their beautiful family.
Hilda was "spunky" which is the best way to describe her! She loved to goof around, cook, EAT, and dance to any tune that had a good beat. She could be stubborn at times but knew her way was always the correct way, which taught us values. She raised a good portion of her family including grandkids and great grandkids. She was strong, spiritual, beautiful, hard working and had an amazing personality that was the center focus in any room. She truly lived her entire life for her family! We will all be forever grateful for the teachings and importance of all she has instilled in our hearts, forever.
Hilda is survived by her sons, Carlos Juan Santos and Tomas Santos Jr, daughters Yolanda Santos, Inez Spence, and Elizabeth Santos, grandchildren Maribel Santos, Robert Rivera, Christina Russell Santos, Carlos Juan Santos Jr, Jacqueline Santos, Percival Spence, Alexander Spence, and Xavier Nieves.
Great grandchildren Kiah Alexa, Kade Straub, Natalie, Brody, Veronica, and Mason Rivera, Joshua Sly, Noah Poe, Neriah Santos, Christian Aponte, Jose Hernandez, along with Mason and Cassius Spence.
Services will be held on Saturday November 30, 2019 at Lakeland Funeral Home. A gathering of family and friends will be from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM, memorial service will being at 12:00 PM.
