Columba Duran

 

 

Con mucha tristeza, la familia Duran comparte el fallecimiento de Columba Duran, a la edad de 76 años. Columba era la madre amorosa de 4 hijos y la esposa adorada de Elpidio Duran. Su muerte, el 3 de julio de 2023, deja a la familia con mucho pesar, pero con una inmensa gratitud de haberla tenido en sus vidas. Columba nació en agosto 7 de 1946 en Zacatecas, México. A mediados de sus 20 anos se vino a vivir a Chicago con su esposo y  tres hijos (Yolanda, Jaime y Leticia).  Su hijo Cesar nació en Chicago 2 años después.  

 

Columba tenía un corazón inmensamente generoso que acogía todo el mundo a su casa. Ella consintió a sus hijos y nunca se cansó de ser su mejor defensora. Ella era la mano derecha de su esposo y juntos construyeron un magnífico hogar aquí en Chicago. 

Aparte de su enorme corazón, Columba tenía un gran sentido del humor, que muy a menudo usaba en sus observaciones de la naturaleza humana. Su esposo, hijos y nietos, y toda su familia, van a extrañarla profundamente. 

 

 

Su velorio, la celebración de la vida de Columba, se realizará en Pomiesrki Funeral Home, en 1059 W. 32nd  St. , el 10 de julio de 4pm a 9pm. El martes, julio 11, una misa  en su honor será celebrada en St Joseph Parish, 4821 S. Hermitage a las 10am. 

Después de la misa, el funeral será realizado en St Casimir Cemetery 4401 W. 111 St.

 


Esperamos que pueda asistir a esta celebración de vida.

 

 

 

With great sorrow, the Durán family shares the passing of Columba Durán, age 76.  She was a loving mother of four, and adoring wife of Elpidio Durán. Her passing on July 3rd 2023 leaves the family with a heavy heart but with immense gratitude for having had her in their lives. Columba was born on August 7th, 1946 in Zacatecas México. In her mid twenties, she moved to Chicago with her husband and three children (Yolanda, Jaime and Leticia). Her son, Cesar, was born in Chicago two years later.

 

Columba had an immensely generous heart, which welcomed all into her home. She spoiled her children and never tired of being their most fervent advocate. She was her husband’s right hand and together they built a wonderful life in Chicago.

 

Besides her enormous heart, Columba had an amazing sense of humor, which she often used in her observations of human nature. Her husband, children and grandchildren as well as all of her extended family and friends will miss her dearly.

 

A wake in celebration of Columba’s life will be held at Pomierski Funeral Home, 1059 W. 32nd St., on July 10th from 4pm-9pm. On Tuesday, July 11th a Funeral Mass in her honor will be given at St. Joseph Parish, 4821 S. Hermitage at 10am. After Mass, the Funeral will be held at St. Casimir Cemetery, 4401 W. 111 Street.
