Armandina Gloria Reyna

Armandina Gloria Reyna (nee Rodriguez)

July 25, 1932 – March 31, 2020 God sent his Angels to collect our beautiful and amazing mother. Until we see you again, we will miss your presence, unconditional love, kindness, generosity, thoughtfulness, sense of humor, laughter, inspiration and determination.

We know you led a wonderful life and we will celebrate you and forever keep you and your memory deep in our hearts. We will keep the music playing in your honor. Our beloved mother, Armandina Gloria Rodriguez Reyna, was born on July 25, 1932, and passed away peacefully in her sleep at the age of 87, on Tuesday, March 31, 2020, at Hartsfield Village Rehabilitation Center in Munster, IN.

She was born in Laredo, TX, and moved to East Chicago, IN, as a young adult, where she resided for most of her life, until relocating to Highland, IN, in 2016. She was the daughter of Jose Maria and Juanita (Arredondo) Rodriguez, who preceded her in death, as did her husband of 33 years, Raul C. Reyna, sister Delia (Lauro) Guerra and great grandchildren, Claudia and Caleb Troxel.

She is survived by seven children: Raul Reyna Jr. of Indiana, Veronica (Alejandro) Martinez of Florida, Rosalinda (David) Cordova of Indiana, Gloria (Steve) Munoz of Utah, Laura (Barry) Edge of Georgia, Sylvia (Mark) Borowiak of Utah, and Araceli Reyna of Indiana. Eleven grandchildren: Adriana (Vincent) Pallaci, Christina Munoz, Vanessa (Jon Gross) Cordova, Mark (Katie) Borowiak, Bianca Cordova, Matthew Borowiak, Tania Cordova, Karina Martinez, Alexander Martinez, David Cordova, Jr., and Tatum Hernandez. Five great-grandchildren: Alyssa, Lauren and Sophia Pallaci, Chloe Troxel, and baby Borowiak, due August 2020. Beloved brother, Jesus (Rosa) Rodriguez, extended family members, nieces, nephews and many dear friends.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, only local immediate family attended a beautiful, private memorial service at Acevez Funeral Home, in East Chicago, IN, and a burial followed at St. John St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery in Hammond, IN, on Saturday, April 4, 2020.

Randy,
Thank you for your kind words. I hope that you and your family are all doing well.
Thank God we were all home at the beginning of March for my niece's Quinceanera, so we got to see mom for the last time. She was so frail, it was sad to see her like that. She and your mom are up there watching over us!
Take care,

Mz. Reyna, I've missed you already so much. Who would have thought I'd meet such a beautiful soul, I clearly remember us sitting in your backyard and just talking. You were ALEAYS feeding Ivan and I while we were working. AND I was so honored when you asked me to make teach you to make Mol, I was actually honored!! We cooked together that day, ate, laughed and watched novelas. You will forever be in our hearts!! Ivan often asked me if I had been able to get a hold of you because we missed you.
On behalf of Ivan & Michelle
We love you dearly, thank you for the memories and talks!!
