Mrs. Hernandez was born December 5, 1949 in Kansas City, Kansas. Mary dedicated her life to her family. She was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Her family was privileged to have her care for them with love and sopa. Mary expressed a strong desire to make the world a place where her children and grandchildren could thrive, a better and more just world. She had strong opinions and a wicked sense of humor that brought joy to those around her.
She was preceded in death by her father, Macario O. Salazar. They are now reunited in heaven, and we are comforted knowing that they are together again.
