Hilda Nereida Hernandez passed away on September 16, 2022 at South Miami Hospital following a medical procedure at the age of 92.
Hilda was predeceased by her husband, Edmundo Hernandez of Miami, Florida. The couple came to this country in 1962 from Cuba with their two children, Esther Maria Parrilla (Juan P) and Alberto (Caroline Weber) and created a beautiful family. She is survived by both of her children and six grandchildren and their spouses: Juan Carlos, Alejandro, Christopher, Alexander, Caroline and Victoria. Hilda is also survived by nine great grandchildren who brought so much joy to her life: Alexandra, Stephanie, Selena, Juan Carlos, Sebastian, Sofia, Oliver, Isabel and Eily.
She will be remembered for her art of cooking and the many words of advice that she shared with those who knew her. She was strong, fearless and had a love for life and family unmatched by anyone. Many family stories and recipes will be enjoyed for years to come and her love will never be forgotten. We will always love our Abuela. God bless you!
In lieu of flowers, we ask that you please make a donation in Hilda’s memory to help cure childhood illness to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
