She is survived by her three beloved children, Rafael, Jose, and Yanira, and cherished by her four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Raised in Puerto Rico, she was the proud daughter of Georgina Del Valle and Miguel Angel Velazquez. She was the youngest of three sisters; Mirna Cuevas and Norma Cuevas de Ayuso.
