Celebrating a life so beautifully lived.
Alma Iris Almodovar-Toro went to be with the Lord peacefully surrounded by her son and daughter-in-law in the early morning hours of May 4, 2022, at the age of 92 years young.
She was born on January 1, 1930, in Sabana Grande, Puerto Rico. The daughter of Melanio Almodovar and Carmen M. Toro.
She spent all her childhood growing up and attending school in Puerto Rico and later relocated to New York city where she worked for many years. She married Jovino Borrero and had three children Egbert, Elliott, and Harold (Harry). She moved back to Puerto Rico in 1981 where she worked diligently in improving community services in the community of Vista Mar. She moved to Orlando, FL in 2001.
She was a homemaker, very independent and had an amazing eye for home décor. Each Christmas she would decorate her home with elaborate decorations, trees, and all sorts of Christmas decorations. It was something she enjoyed the most.
It brought her so much joy when she spoke with her children and grandchildren and when she had family and friends visit with her. She enjoyed listening to Marc Anthony and praying every night.
She is survived by her three children, Egbert, Elliott, Harold and Grandchildren, Great Grandchildren, Nephew and Nieces
Mom, your death has impacted me in ways I didn’t expect, but the years we spent together has impacted the most. Love, your son (Harry)
“Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise" (Luke 23:43)
The family will be receiving friends from 11:00am until 12:00pm, followed by the funeral service at Tabernacle Baptist Church, located at 6000 W. Colonial Drive, Orlando FL 32808 on Saturday, May 14, 2022 with Pastor Steve Ware officiating.
She will be very much missed. May she rest until the Lord comes. God give us peace. Jini
She will be missed, God granted her a very long life that’s what I want to contemplate on, she was a great lady I enjoyed her every time I visited. My condolences to all her children and my prayers are with you as you go through this time of celebration because she is waiting for our Lord in peace and sorrow ☹️ Because her presence will be greatly missed. With love ❤️ Denise
Dear friend’s You can’t imagine how much I’m going to miss you the pranks you played me. The stories of your childhood. The saying of your father’s and that’s why there’s was always something to tell. I was by your side in the joys and sorrow. How much you loved your children but the were difficult times to forget,but you always told me’ I loved all 3 of them equally , but each ones made his life. I wasn’t as strong as they thought,nor as cold as they thought and for a reason we have to go though life and suffer until the day God call me to follow him. I always loved my children with all my heart. And Iris couldn’t be missing as she was to say now I don’t have junior,but I love as Iris who is more than my family and I thank her for all the support we me. May God give her good health,because she worried that I ate and took my medicine. I will not be able to be present physically, but I will continue to take care of all of you from heaven. Loved so much, see you later families and friends. ( Always Alma) now play domino’s with Enrique🙏🖐🏼
My deep condolences to cousin Harry and the rest of our family. As humans it saddens us when we lose a loved one but God, our creator took her to be with him and some day we shall see her again. For now she is rejoicing in the hands of the Lord. Blessings to all our family and you guys are in our prayers. God bless you all. Love you guys.

Mom, I will miss you. My heart hurts but I know that you are no longer suffering for you are now with the Lord in a new body. I will miss bringing you the coffee you loved (Bustelo) when I visited with you every day. I enjoyed our conversations about how you grew up in Puerto Rico. I loved the stories about my early childhood how I was in trouble for not doing my homework but I always scored 100% on the exams. Taking you to doctor's appointments, purchasing groceries, clothes and just talking is what I will treasure the most. For it taught me patience but I grew closer to you. What I love about you is when I came over to check on you the first thing you said (Dios te Bendiga) did you eat. Even though your passing has impacted me in ways I never expected, the time I had with you has impacted me greater and that that I will always cherish the moments we shared. Honestly mom it has been a little hard for me with all I have to do now, but I am at peace knowing that you are with the Lord and Enrique. I love you mom. 💖 your son Harry....
I am so grateful that I can call you grandma. You have filled my LIFE with so much LOVE and PRECIOUS MEMORIES. You will always be loved and FOREVER MISSED
