Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina on April 7th, 1931

Departed on January 31st, 2020 and resided in Aurora, Colorado

    Azucena Lillian Vazquez passed away on Jan 31, 2020 in Aurora, Colorado. She was born April 7, 1931 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    She is preceded in death by her husband Hugo Vazquez, and her two sons William (Teresa) Vazquez, and Richard Vazquez. She is survived by her son Daniel (Dawn) Vazquez, two granddaughters and two grandsons,  as well as by many friends in Colorado and Oregon and many family members living in Argentina.

    Lillian, as she liked to be called, loved to paint and work with ceramics. She was a strong worker and fighter her whole life. She enjoyed looking for antiques during all her travels. She said the happiest times in her life were when she traveled around the US in the 90s in a motorhome with her husband. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Red Cross. A memorial service will be this spring in Corvallis, Oregon.

    No words can express such a loss. My grandma, who was my fathers mom, has always been so strong through her struggles. Through the loss of her 2 sons and husband, numerous health issues, she always pushed through.  I admired that about her and certainly have some of that strength passed down to me as well. 

    The last several times we spoke she would tell me how proud she was of me… while always gently reminding me I should have a plan b to music and wondering why I wasn’t married yet 😌 It was her way of saying she cared about me. She loved us all very much and we are very sad about this loss. I know she is with my dad (Bill) , Rich and Hugo again. Smiling and singing without any more pain ❤️

    I will always miss, admire and love my grandma Lily.
    She was always brutally honest, diligent in her work and had incredible love for her family and friends.
    I always admired her strength and sharp wit.
    She would always make me laugh and double think what I was doing in my life.
    Our dad, her son( Bill/ Guillermo) was the same.
    I’m a very strong person now because of their tough love, wisdom and strong ethics.
    They will always be in my heart, and be my spirit guides throughout this life.
    Blessings to our family, I miss them all💓, and to the ones no longer with us here on Earth,
    May they have peace in the heavens 🥀❤️🌠
