Obituary: Janina Flores (Cortez)


Janina Flores (Cortez)

September 30, 1963 to November 29, 2017


Janina Flores (Cortez), age 54 was a sensational woman whom everyone loved and respected. Wednesday morning November 29, 2017 she passed away peacefully within her own home. She was born September 30, 1963 in Brawley California; raised by two loving parents and surrounded by six sisters.

Janina was a charismatic daughter, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend; whom everyone will remember and love. She always sacrificed her needs for the better of her family and others. Many knew her character to be loving, respectful, humble, selfless, independent, strong, courageous, ambitious, and hold herself with great integrity. She will be deeply missed!

Her last battle fighting uterine cancer for eight months never robbed her of her strength and hope until her passing into heaven. Instead, she loved and lived every moment she was given; showing everyone no matter how enduring the fight is, to NEVER GIVE UP! She is a beautiful woman inside and out who is a true inspiration that we know left a huge imprint on many lives as she did her daughters.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith (2 Timothy 4: 7)

Janina is survived by her three daughters, Maricela, Casandra, Claudia Cortez, who hope to follow in their Mothers steps. She was an incredibly loving grandma to nine insane grandkids and sister to six; all whom will miss her dearly every single day.

Service will be held on Friday, December 15, 2017 with Father Ed Horning officiating at St. Margaret Mary Church in Brawley, CA. Rosary will begin at 8 a.m. with funeral service at 8:30 a.m. Burial will immediately follow at Riverview Cemetery in Brawley, CA.
