Concepcion Poveda Final Expenses

With a sorrowful heart, I share that our loving aunt Concha, Concepcion Poveda, departed the earthly world on 11/12/20 due to congestive heart failure. She was peaceful and surrounded by the love and care of all her family.

If you find it in your heart, please contribute to her final expense fund. She was a strong, independent woman who was never married and never birthed any children- all her nieces and nephews were her children. All contributions will go to her final expenses.

She was born 1/8/35 in Colombia to parents, Maria Celina and Manuel Poveda. She was 1 of 5 siblings and the last surviving of her family. She joined her family in Chicago in 1985 and primarily worked as a seamstress. She was active in the church and a devote Catholic woman. 

She was a strong willed, determined, methodical woman with a heart of gold! We were lucky to have her.

Con mucha tristeza, les comparto que nuestra amada tía Concha, Concepción Poveda, dejó el mundo terrenal anoche debido a una insuficiencia cardíaca congestiva. Estaba en paz y rodeada del amor y el cuidado de toda nuestra familia.

Era una mujer fuerte e independiente que nunca se casó y nunca tuvo hijos; todas sus sobrinas y sobrinos eran sus hijos. Todas las contribuciones se destinarán a sus gastos finales.

Si lo encuentra en su corazón, contribuya a su fondo de gastos finales.
