Irma Ayabarrena was born in Patillas, Puerto Rico on October of 1928, youngest of 17 children, to Genaro Ayabarrena & Quintina Rivera. She is survived by 2 children, 4 grandchildren, & 9 great-grandchildren. During her wonderful life she provided for her three children, working as a seamstress and cook, all while being a strong single no nonsense loving mother. She loved them and lead them to become productive and independent people who worked for years serving our community. Those skills and traits continue to be passed on to the current generation. Irma was strong willed, spicy, and sassy to the end, just as she lived her life. Rest in Peace and, as always, prepare our way.
