Life Story / Obituary


Ophelia Damian (nee Martinez)

Born to Eternal Life April 26, 2020, age 91 years. Beloved wife of Felix Damian. Cherished mother of David (Ridnery) Damian, Michael (Linda) Damian, the late Judy (Tony) Gonzalez, and the late Alex Damian. Loving grandmother of Rachel (John Fritsche), Jason (Jamie) and Adam (Ariela) Gonzalez; Gabrielle, Natalie, and Elena Damian; Carlos and Nicholas Damian; and Denniel (Peter) Burke. Proud great-grandmother of Isabel, Mateo and Celia Fritsche; Alejandra Gonzalez; Aurea and Emrys Burke; and Claire Damian. Further survived by other relatives and many dear friends.

Ophelia loved cooking and shopping. Her favorite thing to do was sew and especially she loved making Halloween costumes and outfits for her family. Her back yard was a source of pride – filled with flowers, it was a favorite place for not only her, but her entire family to sit and relax. Ophelia’s passion was her family – she would do anything for them. Her love and devotion to her children, grandkids, and great-grandkids was beyond measure.
