" Bernarda Flores Padula, was born in Guatemala City, Guatemala December 4th,1938. She was a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints, a Seamstress who also worked at a lipstick factory and a hardworking mother to Erwin Rolando Padula-Flores, Dina Veronica Barrios-Padula, Byron Giovanni Padula-Flores, and Vicente Moises Padula-Flores. She first immigrated to America September 15, 1985; not only looking for a better future for her and her youngest son Vicente, but as well as already having family in the United States. During her life, She took care of many children, and was a positive influence during their upbringing. Teaching them not only how to speak Spanish, but to be good, kind hearted, and respectful people.
She enjoyed a good steak, loved Ice cream (strawberry being her favorite), enjoyed watching television, cooking tamales, dancing, playing bingo, knitting, listening to music, reading, giving advice to others, and collecting family memories through photos, art, and writing.
Bernarda’s personality, if I could describe it in one word, was very strong willed. If I could describe her characteristics, it would be very robust, headstrong, persistent, impactful, and one of the most independent people you would’ve ever met. She had a very business woman attitude, and liked to get things done. Because of how her character was, she was able to motivate others, Inspire others to become stronger, as well as help others in need.
Bernarda’s biggest achievements were her family, seeing others reach their goals and potential, immigrating to America, and leaving an impact on other people. If I could describe her values, it would be very family oriented, didn’t need to live a rich or lavish lifestyle, believing in God and Jesus Christ, and to keep on smiling even when she passed on to the other side.
The survivors of her passing (eldest to youngest) are Erwin Rolando Padula-Flores, Dina Veronica Barrios-Padula, Byron Giovanni Padula-Flores (who has passed in 2020), and Vicente Moises Padula-Flores. As well as her grandchildren."
