Ada Iris Diaz Vega
September 26,1952 ~ September 12,2020
It is with pain in our hearts that we are compelled to announce the passing of a loving wife, mother, Grandmother, and just an amazingly wonderful happy person.
Ada Iris Diaz Vega, 67 after a long battle of off cancer, India, as many of us new her, passed away in her sleep at home by her daughter side Maximina Pabon and son in law Francisco Perez. India was 9 days' shy away of her 68th birthday.
Born to Amelia Vega & Carlos Diaz on September 26,1952, in Ponce, Puerto Rico. India joined a few other siblings. India is survived by the following: Maria Mercedes Diaz, Mildred Diaz, Genoveva Diaz, Maria Luisa Diaz, Adriana Diaz, Elba Pavey, Marta Diaz, Carlos Diaz, Ada Iris Diaz, Angela Cristina Diaz, Amelia Diaz and Sandra Diaz.
India, having so many older siblings, she had learned how to cook amazing meals, laundry, chores and household duties. Due to her maturity she married young. In the 70’s She married and started a family. Things didn’t go well as she thought with her husband so then she moved to Lawrence with her sister to give her children a better life.
She loved cooking, gardening, music, taking care of her family and a good laugh over coffee and or beer with her kids. Sha always sacrificed her needs for the good of her family. India will be remembered as a selfless, altruistic mother who always had a smile, even when times were tough. She had a quiet strength. She never complained and always looked to be a better future.
India was ever calm and serene in her Catholic faith. From her childhood forward she had a special place in her heart for god and his saints. Her character and temperament can best be shown from the time she was diagnosed with stage 1 cancer back in 2016 until her passing into heaven. India had every right to cry, be mad, or even fall into depression after her diagnosis, but instead she loved and lived every moment she was given, neither hard times nor cancer would rob her of who she was. Always graceful, until God called her home.
She is survived by her children, Rosa Pabon, Ada Pabon ,Miguel Pabon, Maximina Pabon and Luis Pabon.
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race,
I have kept the faith.
