Obituary of Maria Libia Montero De Garcia

Nació el 18 de Noviembre del 1934 en Caracolí, Antioquia-Colombia. Hija de José Antonio Montero Pulgarín y María Josefa Hernández Monsalve. Viuda de Joaquín Emilio García y Juan Cipriano Toro.

Nuestra madre, hija, esposa, tía, abuela y amiga fue muy querida y amada. Su sinceridad, sensibilidad, responsabilidad, y amor por su familia y mascotas, fueron motivos para ella seguir luchando y batallando con alegría y optimismo, en muchos aspectos de su vida. Nuestra Madre, siempre fue fuerte y emprendedora y valiente. Amante de la música de antaño y de las buenas y sanas costumbres. Su familia y sus hijos fuimos el centro y motor de su existencia, después de Dios. Nos dejo como legado, “que el amor y la unión en la familia, después de Dios era el centro de nuestra existencia.” Ya sus ojos se han apagado, pero su espirito quedara por siempre en los corazones de quienes te amamos. Descansa en los brazos del Señor tu Dios. ¡Amen!

María Libia Montero Garcia was born on November 18, 1934, in Caracolí, Antioquia - Colombia. Daughter of the late José Antonio Montero Pulgarín and María Josefa Hernandez Monsalve. Beloved wife to the late Joaquín Emilio García and Juan Cipriano Toro.

María Libia is survived by her five daughters Tiffany, Maria Elena, Luz Marina, Marta Cecilia, Doris Consuelo, her two sons Juan Cipriano and Miguel Angel, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, as well as her siblings Jorge Antonio, Dario, Antonio, Teresa María del Socorro and many nieces and nephews.

Our mother, daughter, wife, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend was loving and in return, she was loved by all of us. Her honesty, generosity, care, responsibility, respect, and love for her family and pets, were qualities she always possessed throughout her life. Her family was the motivation that kept her moving forward and she never stopped working with dignity and enthusiasm towards a better present and future for all. Our mother was strong, determined, and she instilled in all of us the belief that with hard work and honesty many things can be accomplished.

María loved music from her younger years and old family traditions. She was elegant, she liked to sew, to cook for her family, and to keep the house organized. To her, God provided the means and we, her family, provided the inspiration for her existence. She leaves us her legacy… to be united, to help and love each other as family more than ever.

Now that she has gone to a better place, we will miss her each and every day and although she closed her eyes to rest eternally in peace, her spirit will live forever in the hearts and memories of all of us who love her.

Rest in peace forever and ever.

Amen.
