Obituary

Consuelo Avila Colindres, of Somerset, passed away Monday, April 20, 2020 at Beth Israel Hospital in Newark. She was 75.

Born in Progresso, Yoro, Honduras, she came to the United States in 1992. She lived in New Brunswick before moving to Somerset.

Consuelo, a warrior woman, dedicated her life to her family. She was the matriarch and heart of us all. Consuelo raised her six children and several of her grandchildren as her own. Despite the many hurdles of being a single parent, she remained focused on providing a suitable upbringing for her children. Even once her children were grown, she continued to dedicate herself to the family by watching over the grandchildren and great grandchildren. However, Consuelo's love did not stop there. Her caring and loving personality created a feeling of home for many not just her own family members. She had a sense of taking people under her wing and providing them with a love that they never imagined. This blessed Consuelo with a family that seemed to have no end. Consuelo will always remain in her family's heart

Consuelo, una mujer guerrera, dedicó su vida a su familia. Ella era la matriarca y el corazón de todos nosotros. Consuelo crió a sus seis hijos y a varios de sus nietos como si fueran suyos. A pesar de los muchos obstáculos de ser madre soltera, ella permaneció enfocada en proporcionar una educación adecuada para sus hijos. Incluso una vez que sus hijos crecieron, ella continuó dedicándose a la familia cuidando a los nietos y bisnietos. Sin embargo, el amor de Consuelo no se detuvo allí. Su personalidad cariñosa y amorosa creó una sensación de hogar para muchos, no solo para los miembros de su propia familia. Tenía la sensación de tomar a las personas bajo su ala y brindarles un amor que nunca imaginaron. Esto bendijo a Consuelo con una familia que parecía no tener fin. Consuelo siempre permanecerá en el corazón de su familia.

Maria Bustillo, Donaldo Bustillo Colindres, Felipe Bustillo Colindres, Judith Elizabeth Bustillo Colindres, Iliana Bustillo Colindres de Umanzor,and Loudres Suyapa Bustillo Colindres
her sisters Maria Garcia, Francisca Caballero, Norma Alicia Rodrigüez and Cristiana Colindres; 24 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.
