Obituary of Ana Vega Martinez
Ana Vega Martinez, 80, of Old Trail Road in Fonda, NY, passed away on Sunday, November 19th, 2023, surrounded by her Liberty ARC family. She was born on March 26, 1943, in Yauco, Puerto Rico to the late Rafael Vega Rodriguez and Luisa Martinez.
Ana was one of a kind and will be greatly missed by all that knew her, especially her Liberty family. Ana made everyone's days brighter with her infectious smile and her ever present sassiness. Ana loved her home at Old Trail, and she was a true fixture at the house. Ana brought lots of laughter and joy to her housemates and staff. She could be found roaming around the house, holding her baby dolls, and humming to them like they were her children. Ana would visit her housemates' rooms and leave gifts on their beds to show her affection for them.
Ana was very proud of her Spanish heritage and would constantly share with everyone that she was from Yauco. She loved everything about her culture, from the food to the music. Ana was a true café lover; she constantly would say "café" and even after having a cup she would ask for some more. She also enjoyed her café with a favorite Spanish cookie "Goya". Along with enjoying the simple pleasures of café, Ana loved her Spanish music and would dance while saying "Merengue, Merengue".
She would also enjoy sitting out on the back porch in the summer basking in the warm weather. Ana was a beautiful soul that loved the simple pleasures of life and she touched the lives of everyone. Even in her final days, Ana warmed the hearts of those around her. Ana was surrounded by those she loved from Old Trail. She spent her final day at the house comfortable in her room, listening to Spanish music all day long. The staff can only hope that she loved her home and staff as much as we all loved her. She will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
