Our loving Carolina Garavito, age 34, died peacefully at the comfort of her own home on Wednesday, April 6, 2016. Defying all odds and braving cancer a number of times, our warrior is now at peace with the Lord above.
Born on January 27, 1982, in Jocotepec, Mexico, she lived in Los Angeles, California and worked at Immaculate Heart High School before her passing. She attended school in both Mexico and the U.S. In 2000, she graduated from John Marshall High School in Los Angeles. She received a Bachelor’s of Arts from the University of California at Santa Cruz in Anthropology in 2006.
Carolina was a loyal friend, a trusted confidant, a life-long learner, and a loving sister and daughter. She never stopped moving and truly LIVING right up to the very last day of her 34 years. She had things to do, and rather than mourn the cancer; she celebrated and made her life, and ours beautiful. She enjoyed coffee at the Americana, watching movies, reading, sharing stories and creating memories with friends, family, nieces and nephews.
Survivors include her parents Maria Mercedes Garavito and Jose Mario Ramon Garavito, and brother Ricardo Ramon Garavito, and sisters Maribel Garavito, Maria Mercedes Garavito and Andrea Garavito Martinez. Her beloved nephews and nieces: Leslie, Daniel, Lisa Marie, Emiliano, Andrew, Christian, Gaby, and Maddie. And her family members and friends in Mexico and the U.S.
God is LOVE.
