Erminia was a homemaker, she enjoyed decorating her home with family pictures and cooking. Which all her family knew she made the best buñuelos, atole, tortillas, burritos, menudo and hojarascas “sugar cookies”. Going to garage sales, watching Law and Order, wrestling, and “Caso Cerrado “ were also some of Erminia’s hobbies. Her family will always remember she was independent, a hard worker.
