Flowers & Gifts
Marina Rodriguez, 91, was called home by God, on June 12th, 2019, in Altamonte Springs, Florida, due to natural causes.
Marina was born in Santurce, Puerto Rico, on February 16, 1928. Throughout her life Marina was a resident of Puerto Rico, New York, and New Jersey before she finally settled down with her husband in Florida in 2003. Marina was loved, adored, and cherished by all whose lives she crossed paths with. She was a God-fearing woman and a member of the Saint Augustine Catholic Church in Casselberry, Florida.
Her life revolved around God, church, family, friends and Bingo. Marina had a heart of gold that was like no other. Her smile and laughter would light up a room. She loved and cared deeply for everyone. All she knew was kindness. She will be carried in the hearts of many and tremendously missed.
Marina is survived by her three children, Maria Berrios, Carlos Rodriguez (spouse Mary), and Nancy Rodriguez, her four grandchildren Theresa Berrios, Felix Berrios, Jessica Tharrington, and Jason Navarro, her six great-grandchildren Louis Santiago, Maria Santiago, Ariana Tharrington, Malachi Tharrington, Serenity Tharrington and Jada Tharrington, and her two sisters Iris Cruz and Providencia Miranda.
