She dedicated her life to Jehovah, family to include her spiritual family. Archie touched the hearts of many people and will be truly missed.
Mom, where do I start you were the best mother a boy could ask for, your love was unweathering your strength so impowering. My mother loved her three boys. Growing up my mom loved to watch her sons play sports, didn’t matter what sport all she knew was that her son was playing, and she was going to be there. Mom was respected amongst all our childhood friends; I am sure her skills at cooking and baking contributed to that a little. Most of all it was her heart that captured people, when you walked through her door, she made you feel so special, so important that my friends felt like family. I am going to miss talks with my mother, with out fail, she spoke from her heart and the bible making sure her boys were ready for anything life throws at us. Going to miss watching afar as the loving interactions mom had with my wife, they would sit for hours just talking about the bible and my wife intently listen to my mother’s heavenly wisdom. I’m already missing her voice singing along with her favorite music, she loved singing and I loved to hear her do so.
Miss you MOM
Born in Phoenix, Arizona she lived her whole life in the state was born on January 13th, 1956, to John Antonio Cano and Irene Luera. Archie had 6 brothers and 6 sisters listed in order Johnny, Archie, Mary, Olivia, Efran, Angie, Minerva, Miguel, Virgina, Nacho, Vicente, Irene and Frankie.
My sister Archie was the best big sister ever. Always looking after her younger siblings. Started at a very young age and continued until her last days on Earth.
In this picture she is holding hands with her little sisters Olivia on the right and Angie on her left. I miss my big sister dearly.
When I think of Archie, all I can do is smile. She had a big heart, and she knew how to make everyone feel like they were family. If you knew Archie just a little bit, you knew she loved to serve Jehovah; she loved to meet new people and to make friends; she loved to laugh, take pictures, and dance.
For Archie, baking wasn’t just something to make someone feel good; it was an art form. She made countless cupcakes and cakes for family and friends, may it have been for a wedding, anniversary, bridal shower, baby shower, graduation, gathering, etc. Her cakes were exquisite, especially her Pineapple upside-down cake, which was my favorite cake of hers. She had a way of creating fruit and veggie plates beyond what the ordinary person could do. Archie cannot do small things; she only knew how to go big or go home. She had a love for food, and she was a true foodie at heart! Archie wasn’t afraid of trying new things. You could see her face light up when she would speak about her time working at the Wigwam Resort, the Sheraton, and other hotels. She was a firecracker! To know Archie was to love her.
