RIP Pastora Enma

CCECE1C4-8847-4CE3-A6F2-BEDE94D11FDELast night we lost a spiritual giant, a powerful leader, and a dedicated Casa Maria volunteer, Enma Orellan (La Pastora) due to COVID-19. We are deeply saddened by her passing and would like to commemorate her memory. She was the director of the Salvation Army Youth Center almost next door to Casa Maria for many years. Dedicating her life to the service of others, even in her last days she displayed selflessness and valor by delivering food to those in need. In the words of her daughter Glenda, “My mom has been promoted to the glory of God” We will miss her but her spirit will always be present at Casa Maria. Our deepest condolences to her family and friends.

Anoche perdimos a un espíritu gigante, una líder poderosa, y una dedicada voluntaria de Casa Maria, Enma Orellan (La Pastora) debido a COVID-19. Estamos profundamente tristes por su fallecimiento y nos gustaría honrar su memoria. Ella ha dedicado su vida al servicio de los demás. Incluso en sus últimos días, mostró humildad y valor al entregar comida a los necesitados. En las palabras de su hija Glenda,“Mi madre ha sido promovida a la gloria de Dios” La extrañaremos, pero su espíritu siempre estará presente en Casa María. Nuestro mas sentido pésame a sus familiares y amigos.
