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)
