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.
