Yolanda Graduated from the University of Puerto Rico where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in nursing. Following graduation, she worked at Hospital Damas in Ponce Puerto Rico and VA hospital in Orange County New York. Apart from nursing she enjoyed cooking for her family especially around Christmas, during this time she would make authentic Spanish foods, a variety of cheesecakes and coconut flan.
Yolanda was at the happiest when she was eating, singing and dancing parranda for Christmas with family and friends. She would dance to any kind of music she could move to. Another joyful moment in her life was watching American Football. She was a Giants fan. Whenever they played, she would scream and jump in excitement. They played Sunday and won.
Miss Yolanda was also best known for looking fabulous. She always had her hair and nails freshly done and painted red. She always wore heels, something sparkly, red lipstick, black eyeliner and the biggest most beautiful smile. She had a contagious laugh that would make everyone else laugh. She was also known and will always be remembered for her snoring that only Carlito inherited.

win. Both Carlito (her son) and Justin (her grandson) could attest to that.
This Beautiful soul we all lost was one of the strongest woman we’ve ever
known. When she puts her mind to something there’s no such thing as can’t. Her
advice to everyone is if you worked hard and put your mind to it, you can
Yolanda will be remembered for so many things, especially the way she treated everyone. It made us all feel like we were her favorite. Today we wish you farewell in your journey to eternity. You are forever in our hearts. Until we meet again. Goodnight, goodbye and sleep tight.
