Carmen moved from Dumas to Waukegan, IL in 1993 where she resided. She worked as a maintenance coordinator for a rental property management company. Carmen was full of life, always the life of the party and loved to dance. Anywhere she went, she would light up a room with her beautiful smile. She was a devoted daughter and sister. She was an excellent mother; always making sure her children had everything they needed. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy. There was never a day that she didnt stop to buy them something she thought they might need. She was also a very caring person who was always willing to help other people. She could be going through hard times herself but always managed to help whoever was in need. You could go to her for absolutely anything, and she would find a way to help them.
