Estamos increíblemente entristecidos al anunciar el fallecimiento de Dania Méndez de Guerra, querida madre, esposa, hija, hermana y amiga.

Dania solo tenía 21 años y le sobrevive un hijo pequeño, un devoto esposo y una familia cariñosa tanto en los Estados Unidos como en casa en El Salvador.

Dania fue un residente permanente de los Estados Unidos que salió de El Salvador en enero de 2017 para construir una vida nueva para ella y su familia en el área de Maryland.

Estaba decidida a trabajar duro y ayudar a mantener a su hijo, que acababa de cumplir 4 años, Dania trabajó largas horas como preparador en el restaurante KFC / Taco Bell ubicado en la University Blvd. en Wheaton, MD. Ella a veces trabajaba bastante tarde y, dado que su familia no tenía un vehículo, normalmente haría los cortos 7 minutos caminando a casa después del trabajo.

Poco después de la medianoche en la madrugada del lunes 6 de noviembre, Dania dejó el trabajo y comenzó a caminar de regreso a casa. Ella nunca llegó. Con la ayuda de su familia y amigos, la policía del condado de Montgomery realizó una búsqueda masiva durante los próximos días con la esperanza de encontrar a Dania sana y salva y devolverla a su familia.

Desafortunadamente, a tempranas horas de la tarde del viernes 10 de noviembre, se encontró el cuerpo de Dania, escondido cerca del camino que usualmente tomaba a casa. Le habían quitado la vida. La policía del condado de Montgomery está llevando a cabo una investigación del asesinato y lamento que no tenemos más información en este momento.

Mi nombre es Kimberly y soy un familiar y amiga de la hermana de Dania. La familia de Dania me pidió asistencia en la creación de este evento para recaudar fondos y todo el dinero recaudado irá directamente a la cuenta bancaria de su esposo, José Guerra. La familia de Dania espera utilizar los fondos recaudados para proveer para el regreso de sus restos a El Salvador y para un apropiado entierro.

A los cientos de personas que han expresado preocupación por el bienestar de Dania por los últimos dias: gracias desde el fondo de nuestros corazones. Esperamos consideren una donación para ayudar a la familia de Dania llevarla a su madre una última vez.

Le agradecemos todo su apoyo y amor. Si usted tiene preguntas, por favor de enviar un mensaje e intentaré responder lo antes posible. Dios los bendiga.

=======================================================

We're incredibly saddeneded to announce the passing of Dania Méndez de Guerra—beloved mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend.

Dania was only 21-years-old and is survived by a young son, a devoted husband, and a loving family both in the United States and back home in El Salvador. 

Dania was a permanent resident of the United States who left El Salvador in January 2017 to build a new life for herself and her family in the Washington, D.C. area. She was determined to work hard and assist in providing for her son, who had just turned 4-years-old. 

Dania worked long hours as a food-preparer at the KFC/Taco Bell Restaurant on University Blvd. in Wheaton, MD. She often worked quite late and, as her family did not own a vehicle, would typically make the short 7-minute walk home after work. 

Shortly after midnight in the early morning of Monday, November 6th, Dania left work and began to make her way back home. She never arrived. With the help of her family and friends, the Montgomery County Police conducted a massive search over the next several days in the hopes of finding Dania safe and sound and returning her to her family. 

Unfortunately, early in the afternoon on Friday, November 10th, Dania's body was found hidden near the path she usually took home. Her life had been taken from her, and from the family and friends who adored her. The Montgomery County Police are conducting a murder investigation and we regret that we do not have any further information at this time.

My name is Kimberly and I'm a relative and friend of Dania's sister, Celia. Dania's family asked for my assistance in setting up this fundraiser and all of the money raised will go directly to Dania's husband, Jose. Dania's family hopes to use the funds to provide for the return of her remains to El Salvador and for a proper funeral and burial there. 

To the hundreds of people who've expressed concern for Dania's well-being over the last several days: thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We hope you'll consider donating to assist Dania's family in bringing her home to her mother one last time. 

Thank you all for your support and love. If you have any questions, please feel free to send a message and I will try to respond as soon as possible. God bless.
