Doris Nieves De Colon
12/31/1939 - 12/07/2020
Dear family and friends,
Doris Colon met our Lord during the early morning hours on December 7, 2020. She is survived by her loving husband Rafael, her four daughters, Doris (Dindy), Sandra, Vanessa and Annette, her 9 grandchildren, her three siblings, Milagros, Dalila, and Richard, and countless friends. Although she will be greatly missed, we are comforted with the knowledge that she now begins the new and promised life with our Lord and Savior. Knowing her, she will kindly ask God to send angels to watch over us.
Doris was born in New York City on December 31, 1939 to Juan and Aurea Nieves. Her family moved to Puerto Rico when she was 10 years of age and there she met the love of her life, Rafi, whom she married 59 years ago.
Doris’ happy, humble and serving spirit coupled with a great smile and boundless energy were the driving forces in her life. She exhibited compassion and congeniality to all and an optimism and kind spirit that left all who knew her better. Sadly, a global pandemic has hit the world and all celebratory plans will have to wait. Thankfully, we know she is celebrating in Heaven as she is held in the loving arms of God.
Please join us for a funeral mass on Saturday, February 6th at 10:00 a.m. at the Incarnation Catholic Church.
