Carmen loved being with family, cooking, and family gatherings. Carmen owned and operated her own cafe, Carmen’s Cafe, which was hugely successful. She loved Wendover, Las Vegas, gambling, and The One Arm Bandit. Carmen also loved her weekly lunches with her family and loved her family unconditionally. She will be greatly missed. See you later, Alligator!

Special thanks to Sunridge Assisted Living and their staff.
