Armida Duron Calderon, a beacon of love, positivity, and passion, has gracefully completed her earthly journey on October 23, 2023. Born on February 16, 1951, in Oakland, California, Armida lived a life that was as vibrant and dynamic as the state she called home.
Armida was the beloved wife of Raymond Calderon for over 52 years, a testament to a love story that began shortly after they both graduated from High School. Their love story was not just one of romance, but also of partnership and mutual respect. The couple had two beautiful children, Lupe and David Calderon, who were the pride and joy of their lives. Armida was also a loving grandmother to Mason Calderon, mother in law to Maxwell Duong (Lupe’s husband) and a cherished sister to Gloria De La Riva. She was preceded in death by five sisters and two brothers, but their memories lived on in the stories and lessons she shared with her family.
Armida was a woman of many talents and interests. She held various jobs throughout her life, but her most memorable role was that of a crossing guard. She took great pride in her job, seeing it as an opportunity to protect and guide the community's youngest members. But her work wasn't limited to the crosswalks of Santa Ana. Armida was also an exceptional cook, and her family's Thanksgiving tamales were the talk of the town. Her love for Bingo was legendary, and she never missed an opportunity to play. Armida believed in making the most of every moment, and she found joy in the simplest of things.
Despite being the youngest of eight children, Armida took on the role of a protector. She was fiercely loyal and would stand up for her family, no matter the cost. Armida was known for speaking her mind and was unafraid to voice her opinions. She was stubborn and occasionally ornery, traits that only added to her charm. She possessed a sharp business mind, especially when it came to money. Armida's wisdom, resilience, and resourcefulness were a source of inspiration for her family.
Armida Duron Calderon was a woman of immense love and optimism. She had a heart that was warm and welcoming, and she believed in the power of positivity. Her passion for life was infectious, and she encouraged those around her to live their lives with fervor and enthusiasm. Armida's legacy is one of courage, love, and tenacity, and her memory will continue to inspire her family and all those who knew her.
Armida's journey may have ended, but her spirit lives on. She taught us that life is not about the destination, but about the journey and the love we share along the way. So, as we bid farewell to Armida Duron Calderon, let us remember her not with sadness, but with gratitude for the love she shared, the lives she touched, and the lessons she taught us. May her life continue to inspire us to live ours with passion, love, and optimism.
