Nancy Veronica (Alvarez) Gomez

Date of Death

January 20, 2023

Nancy Veronica (Alvarez) Gomez passed away peacefully on Jan 20th, 2023 with her husband Armando by her side. She left behind the people she loved and in turn loved her. Nance, Mom, Gramma, Tia Nan and Nan, were a few names she was known by. Her smile and beautiful soul were so much more than any name could capture. Her presence was so calm and comforting. Her understanding of human emotions and all the complications they bring enabled her to bring peace of mind and solutions to those who sought her advice. An excellent cook and a voracious reader of cookbooks enabled her to create meals that were truly from the heart, “Don’t cook when you are angry.” Her innate sense of balance in all things was expressed in her sense of fashion, meal presentation and event planning. She helped young parents create a good foundation for their children and felt that loving them with a firm understanding of right and wrong helped create good human beings. Her likes were many, a stroll along the wharf and breakwater, family camping, fiesta in S.B, Family BBQ’s, trips to the casino, enjoying the many water holes at Red Rock and many more. Fiercely loyal to family she was the “glue” amongst her siblings after her mother passed in 2021. Her dedication to her grandchildren was unwavering, she was determined to create a relationship with each of her grandchildren. “Love you Gramma” was reward enough. A proud mother of three beautiful daughters, only a Mama bear could understand her fierce determination that no harm come to her children. She enjoyed all manner of interaction with her daughters. Gentle as only a mother could be, strong when the winds of adversity would blow, she was their backup when threatened by the twists and turns of life. She was a beautiful woman, inside and out. The Fifty years we were married now seems too short. We grew up together and contributed to each other’s growth. It was fun, it was sad, we laughed, and we cried. Knowing we would wake up together was never in doubt. Even now, she is my first and last thought of the day. Nance, I Love you…and thank you for a wonderful life.

Nancy is survived by her husband Armando Gomez, her three daughters Oona, Marissa (Jacob), Margaret and 11 grandchildren, her siblings Jimmy (Bonnie) Sal (Cherie) Mando (Inez) Art (Ana) Abe (Rose) Letty (Ruben) Hoppy (Danelle). Preceded in death by her Parents Margaret and Chava Alvarez her sister Cynthia and brother Ruben “Joe”.
