Obituary

ELVIRA CAMILO
Nació el 6 de Mayo de 1935 en Cerro de Nava, Luperón, Provincia Puerto Plata, República Dominicana. Hija de Severiano Paulino, un humilde agricultor y Albina Tolentino. A sus 19 años se trasladó a la ciudad de Santo Domingo, capital de la República Dominicana, desempeñándose en diferentes trabajos. Fué amante de la costura, el bordado, la pintura y sobre todo la poesía, su manera preferida de dejar salir, toda la sensibilidad que guardaba para si, y que pocas personas conocían.
En 1960 se casó con Angel María Camilo, un viudo con tres hijas (Noemí (fallecida), Candy y Eunice (fallecida)), con el que procreó cuatro hijos, formando una familia con siete hijos, los cuales siempre fueron el motor que la impulsaba a ser mejor cada día. Tuvieron un Matrimonio de 33 años, Honrando el compromise que hicieron de estar juntos, hasta que la muerte de Angel los separó el 24 de Septiembre de 1993.
Esposa intachable, madre abnegada, como pocas, tanto para sus hijos propios, como para muchos otros a los que crió durante toda su vida, pues su casa siempre tuvo las puertas abiertas para todo el que lo necesitase, fuese de su familia o no. Mujer desinteresada, siempre dispuesta a ayudar a sus vecinos. Trabajadora incansable, en su lucha por sacar adelante a su familia.
A pesar de sus carencia en el acceso a la educación formal, supo ser un ejemplo y motivación en la educación de sus hijos. No dejó grandes herencias materiales, pero les heredó, el más valioso de los tesoros, el amor y la union, y una sólida educación familiar, que sirve a sus hijos de ejemplo de trabajó y superación; ejemplo de moralidad y de honestidad en el desarrollo de sus vidas.
“Doña Elvira”, como todos le decían, no fué una persona de muchas palabras. Tenía un carácter fuerte, el cual ni los años pudieron doblegar, pero un corazón immensamente generoso. No era dada a expresar su amor con palabras, pero lo demostraba ampliamente con sus hechos, los cuales hablaban con mucha elocuencia, mereciéndole el cariño y el respeto de todos los que la conocían, tanto en su país natal, como en su segunda patria. Descansa en paz, Elvira.

ELVIRA CAMILO
He was born on May 6, 1935 in Cerro de Nava, Luperón, Puerto Plata Province, Dominican Republic. She is the daughter of Severiano Paulino, a humble farmer, and Albina Tolentino. At the age of 19, she moved to the city of Santo Domingo, capital of the Dominican Republic, working in different jobs. She was a lover of sewing, embroidery, painting and especially poetry, her favorite way of letting out all the sensitivity that she kept for herself, and that few people knew.
In 1960 he married Angel María Camilo, a widower with three daughters (Noemí (deceased), Candy and Eunice (deceased)), with whom he had four children, forming a family with seven children, who were always the driving force behind her. He pushed himself to be better every day. They had a marriage of 33 years, honoring the commitment they made to be together, until Angel's death separated them on September 24, 1993.
Impeccable wife, selfless mother, like few others, both for her own children, and for many others whom she raised throughout her life, because her house always had its doors open for anyone who needed it, whether it was from her family or not. She selfless woman, always willing to help her neighbors. She is a tireless worker, in her struggle to get her family forward.
Despite her lack of access to formal education, she knew how to be an example and motivation in the education of her children. She did not leave large material inheritances, but she inherited them, the most valuable of treasures, love and union, and a solid family education, which serves as an example of hard work and improvement for her children; example of morality and honesty in the development of their lives.
“Doña Elvira”, as everyone called her, was not a person of many words. She had a strong character, which not even the years could break, but an immensely generous heart. She was not given to expressing her love with words, but she amply demonstrated it with her deeds, which spoke very eloquently, earning her the affection and respect of all those who knew her, both in her native country and in the United States, her second homeland. Rest in peace, Elvira.
