Obituary of Sara Gonzalez Flores
Sara Gonzalez Flores “Grammy” was born in Guadalajara, Mexico. She came to the United States in the mid-60s ultimately making Las Vegas her home. On January 7, 2021, Grammy took the stairway to heaven. She was 75 years young a devout Roman Catholic and an active member of Holy Family Catholic Church for over 40 years. A consummate mother, homemaker, and an excellent cook who so enjoyed preparing meals for our enormous family and friends. Grammy was our soccer cheerleader, our hero, and the matriarch of our family. She had her own unique style. If we could not get ahold of her, we knew without a doubt she was at Dillards. She loved animal print clothing! Grammy loved costume jewelry, blingy headbands and hats. She had an outfit for every occasion, sometimes two. She rocked every look; she was our diva! She was a mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a mother-in-law. She is preceded in death by her parents, Rafael and Geronima Gonzalez and her brother Silvino Gonzalez. She is survived by her 4 adult children, Dolores Del Rio, David Flores, Jesus Flores, Jr. and Pablo Flores as well as he 11 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. Her beloved husband, Jesus Flores “abuelo” joined her in heaven on February 16, 2021, nine (9) days after her passing. Grammy was a loving sister to her siblings, Toṅo, Martha, Maria and Paula. She loved each one of her grandchildren in their own unique way. She was kind, supportive yet had NO PROBLEM telling any one of us if she did not approve of something. Our family debates are simply classic. Grammy loved her music, loved to dance and was always ready to go for a party, a trip, or any kind of a family outing. The one and only problem was getting her anywhere on time. If the party was at 4:00 we always knew we had to tell Grammy the party was at 2:00. We will miss our Christmas’ together. She had the most beautiful Christmas tree decorations, and no one will ever wrap our presents as beautiful as she did. No one will celebrate like her and no one will ever cook for us like she did. You see, in retrospect it was not about the wrapping or the cooking, it was all about the love and tenderness she put forth in everything she did for our family and those she loved. Her most important role was a loyal and dedicated wife. She spoiled her husband, Jesus Flores aka Abuelo with anything he wanted, or any meal he wanted at any time of the day or night. She loved him unconditionally and there was nothing she would not do for him. However, not going to sugar coat all of it. Sometimes, she needed a break and would get away. She would not even be out the neighborhood gate and her cell phone would start ringing. Abuelo was always worried and checking in on her. She would say “ Hay este senor!”, yet she would always pick up the phone with such a tender voice “que viejito”. You simply felt the love. On Thursday, February 25, 2021 at Prince of Peace Catholic Church located at 5485 E. Charleston Blvd., Las Vegas, Nevada 89142; we will have a mass in their honor at 11:00 A.M.

Our hearts are broken, but we are at peace knowing that they will be spending eternity together in heaven.To plant a beautiful memorial tree in memory of Sara Flores, please visit our Tree Store
