Amparo Lara Obituary

   Amparo Lara, aged 84, of Danville, peacefully passed away at her home on Monday, October 30th, 2023.

   Born on March 15, 1939, in the town of Panuco, Veracruz, Mexico, to parents Julian Pavόn and Joaquina Gonzalez, she married her childhood sweetheart, Miguel Lara, who lovingly survives her.

   Amparo's early love for music, attending concerts, and savoring live performances, led her and her dear sister, Irma, to form the enchanting duo, "Las Hermanitas Pavόn” (The Pavόn Sisters). Together, they graced stages across Mexico and shared the limelight with renowned artists.
    After her music career, Amparo embraced the role of a dedicated homemaker, tirelessly nurturing her family with love and support. Her passion for collecting figurines, with a special fondness for frogs, elephants, and turtles, added further happiness to her life, as did the joy she found in celebrating holidays with her family.
    Amparo also cherished word search puzzles, finding joy in uncovering hidden words, much like the hidden treasures of life. Her legacy also includes her deep love for animals, her green thumb that brought beauty to her garden, her culinary creations that delighted taste buds, and her impeccable fashion sense, reflecting a life filled with diverse interests and passions.

Amparo is survived by her children, Ricardo Lara and Judith (Matt) Fuentes, as well as her three beloved grandchildren, Stefani Lara, Nathaniel Lara, and Nicholas Fuentes, and her great-grandchildren Samuel, James, and Atreus. She is also remembered by her sister, Irma, in Mexico, and a host of cherished nieces and nephews. Amparo was preceded in death by her parents and brothers, Rene Gonzalez (Mexico), Delfino Pavόn (Houston) and baby brother Desiderio (Mexico).

Amparo found solace and community in her faith as a devoted member of the Holy Family Catholic Church.

As we bid farewell to Amparo, her memory shall forever resonate in our hearts. She leaves behind a legacy of love, music, and a passion for life that will continue to inspire us. Amparo will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and her loyal feline companion, Niña (Baby girl).

   A Memorial Visitation will take place on Saturday, November 11, 2023 from 3-6pm at Kruger Funeral Home, 10 E. Williams Street in Danville. A brief prayer service led by Father Loftus will take place at 3pm.
