Anne Marie Mendez Obituary, Death – This morning, December 28, 2023, in Hanford, Anne Marie Mendez died away calmly and serenely after a brief and extremely severe period of coping with cancer. The month of May was the month when she was able to celebrate her 80th birthday by dancing with her family and friends. In the past few weeks, her closest friends and family members have reached out to us via phone calls, text messages, and visits. We are grateful for all of these gestures.

During our conversation, our mother made it quite obvious to us how we would commemorate her life. Stay tuned for further information regarding a funeral service that will take place in January. Over the past few weeks, we have had the incredible good fortune to spend a significant amount of time with our mother.

A period of two weeks was spent living with April and her family before she was admitted to the hospital and then, subsequently, to a skilled nursing home. For the past week, she has been receiving care from hospice. While we were going through this procedure, we were fortunate enough to have some time to laugh and cry while also expressing our love for her.
