Obituary

Luz A. Echavarria de Gaviria, 92, of Pawtucket passed away early Tuesday, July 27, 2021 surrounded by her loving family at the Hulitar Hope Hospice Center in Providence. Born in Medellin, Colombia on March 10, 1929, Luz was the loved daughter of the late Pedro Echavarria and Rosa Ruiz. She was the youngest of eight.

Married on February 25, 1952, Luz was the beloved wife of the late Jose de Jesus Gaviria. Together they had seven children. Luz was a loving mother to her children and happily devoted everything she could, to them. One of Luz's favorite activities with her children was to show them how beautiful their homeland of Colombia was, between listening to the breezy trees and finding vibrant and brightly colored flowers, she was always outside when the weather was good. When she was given the gift of grandchildren she was able to pass down the culture and history of their family and would encourage them to visit their motherland any time they got the chance. In 1995, she and her husband Jose had immigrated to Rhode Island with a few of their children to provide a better life for the generations to follow. She was a lifelong Catholic who found safety in her parish. Shortly after arriving in Rhode Island, she became a member of the Parroquia San Juan Bautista in Pawtucket and continued attending services until she became sick. 

Luz is treasured and loved by her family, the most important people in her life. She is survived through stories and soups; her story is shared by her: daughter, Lilian Gaviria; her sons, Luis E. Gaviria, Luis C. Gaviria, Jose Gaviria, Juan Gaviria, Norberto Gaviria and Juan-Carlos Gaviria; her 18 grandchildren and her 25 great-grandchildren; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. She was predeceased by her parents, her loving husband and all seven of her siblings.

Luz A. Echavarria de Gaviria, 92, de Pawtucket falleció la madrugada del martes 27 de julio de 2021 rodeada de su amada familia en el Hulitar Hope Hospice Center en Providence. Luz, nacida en Medellín, Colombia, el 10 de marzo de 1929, era la hija amada del fallecido Pedro Echavarría y Rosa Ruiz. Ella era la más joven de ocho.

Casada el 25 de febrero de 1952, Luz era la amada esposa del fallecido José de Jesús Gaviria. Juntos tuvieron siete hijos. Luz fue una madre cariñosa para sus hijos y felizmente les dedicó todo lo que pudo. Una de las actividades favoritas de Luz con sus hijos era mostrarles lo hermosa que era su tierra natal, Colombia, entre escuchar la brisa de los árboles y encontrar flores vibrantes y de colores brillantes, ella siempre estaba afuera cuando hacía buen tiempo. Cuando recibió el regalo de los nietos, pudo transmitir la cultura y la historia de su familia y los alentó a visitar su patria cada vez que tuvieran la oportunidad. En 1995, ella y su esposo José habían inmigrado a Rhode Island con algunos de sus hijos para brindarles una vida mejor a las generaciones venideras. Ella fue una católica de toda la vida que encontró seguridad en su parroquia. Poco después de llegar a Rhode Island, se convirtió en miembro de la Parroquia San Juan Bautista en Pawtucket y continuó asistiendo a los servicios hasta que se enfermó.

Luz es apreciada y amada por su familia, las personas más importantes de su vida. Se la sobrevive a través de historias y sopas; su historia la comparte ella: hija, Lilian Gaviria; sus hijos, Luis E. Gaviria, Luis C. Gaviria, José Gaviria, Juan Gaviria, Norberto Gaviria y Juan-Carlos Gaviria; sus 18 nietos y sus 25 bisnietos; así como una gran cantidad de sobrinas, sobrinos, primos y amigos. Sus padres, su amado esposo y sus siete hermanos fallecieron antes que ella.
