Ana Fidelia Franco Carrasquillo, 88, was born on August 18th, 1932 in Fúquene, Colombia to the late Luisa Franco. God peacefully called Ana home in her sleep to be with her husband Ruben on October 6, 2020.
Ana left her family in Colombia to come to America in 1967 to work at the famous Concord Hotel. It was there where she met her future husband Ruben. They married on July 10th, 1968 and gave birth to her only daughter Jacqueline a year later. She was a hard worker and dedicated her life to her family but it wasn't until 1975 when she gave her life to Christ and began to live her life of dedication and servitude to her savior Jesus Christ. She spoke about her love of the lord to everybody, anywhere she could. At times she would be called annoying and pushy but she didn't let that stop her from getting the word of God out to as many people as she could. She would often quote Romans 1:16 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes". She was a true believer and soldier for Christ.
Ana is survived by her only child Jacqueline Carrasquillo of Monticello, NY. Grandson Ruben Eric Young of Duarte, Ca. Sisters Maria Nicolasa Franco Cardona of Manizalez, Colombia, twin sister Ana Betulia Franco Paez of Fuquene, Colombia and Brother Martin Franco of Pereira, Colombia. A host of nieces, nephews and friends. She is preceded in death by her husband Ruben Carrasquillo, Mother Luisa Franco and Brother Eduardo Franco.
