Armida Yniguez Huerta passed away peacefully with family members by her side.

Armida, a native of Arizona, met her husband Longie in Miami, Arizona. They married in 1953 and celebrated 64 memorable years together.

She had amazing cooking talents and was tenacious in keeping her home very clean and organized. She had a very strong will and would accomplish anything that she would put her mind to. Armida did not attend high school, but she did acquire her G.E.D. all while being a housewife and a mother and holding down a job.

She was always happy when sharing her great home-cooked meals with family and friends.
