Daria lived a full and complete life. She loved being around family. To her family was everything. She also loved to dance, watch novelas, and play Super Nintendo (Super Mario World). One of her most cherished moments was watching TV with her beloved friend Dave Young, in her apartment at Mt. Zion, where her brother Juan worked in maintenance as well. Daria was bold and made sure to speak her mind. She made a difference in every person that she knew and met. No matter the person and their imperfection, she loved and cherished them anyway. Lastly, Daria was also a woman of faith who strongly believed in God and trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ.
