A rosary will be recited at Assumption Catholic Church at 11:30 a.m., Friday, Jan. 25, 2013, for Georgina “Gina” Bravo Herz, who passed away Monday, Jan. 21, 2013. Mass of the Resurrection will follow at 12:10 p.m., celebrated by the Rev. Andrew Miles.
Gina was born on Sept. 7, 1942, in Orizaba, Veracruz, Mexico, to Jorge and Antonia Bravo, who preceded her in death. She was also preceded in death by her sister Pilar Bravo Davalos. She is survived by her husband Dr. Francisco Herz. She will be deeply missed by her two children, Alejandro Herz and his two children, Alejandro and Mateo, and Lety Lopez and her two children, Sebastian and Nicole. Others left to cherish Gina’s memory include her son-in-law Dr. Sebastian Lopez, who cared for her as if she were his own mother and whom she loved as her own son; her sister Irma Bravo Rumoroso; and many nieces and nephews.
Gina studied interior design and cosmetology in Mexico, where she practiced it as a hobby. She was a member of the Rotary Club when they lived in Orizaba and Juarez. She was always very involved in her church and participated in Bible studies, charity work, and was an extraordinary minister of Holy Communion. She and her husband Francisco moved to Roswell from Queretaro in June 2011 to be able to enjoy the company of Lety and her dear family. She took care of her husband with Alzheimer’s, and she enjoyed taking English lessons during her time in Roswell, always studying very hard.
Her family is grateful for the wonderful care she received during the last six weeks of her life at ENMMC and Mission Arch.
She will be missed greatly, but we find comfort in knowing that she was looking forward to passing away from this life to eternal life with God.
We give Gina back to you, oh Lord, who first gave her to us; yet as you did not lose her in giving, so we do not lose her by her return. For what is yours is ours also if we belong to You. Love is undying, and life is unending, and the boundary of this mortal life is but a horizon, and a horizon is nothing by the limit of our sight. Lift us up, loving Lord Jesus, that we may see further. Cleanse our eyes that we may see clearly. And while you prepare a place for us, prepare us also for that happy place, that we may be with You and with those we love forevermore. Amen.
