Cady, Lois Alexandria Dehesa  
LOIS ALEXANDRIA DEHESA CADY Mimi, Our beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, Lois Alexandria Dehesa Cady, 79, earned her Angel's wings on June 30, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nev. Left to cherish her memory is her husband of 49 years, Gordon, her soulmate, best friend, and partner on her worldly journey. They shared five children: Michelle, Tom (Tina), Rebecca, Dawn, and April, who treasure the memories of this spunky lady who came from the island of Cuba to the desert of Nevada. She loved her children and her numerous grandchildren: Joey (Bonnie), Shay, Jaimee (Lorenzo), Branden, Tombo, Kristina, Kimberly , Amy (Wayne), Johnny, Amanda, Sydney, Grace, Audrey, Kelsey, and Mia with all her heart. She was also fortunate to enjoy her great-grandchildren: Nichole, Jacob, McKenzie, Jadynn, Peyton, Lana, Graysen, Hailey, Jordan, Parker, Sadie, and Ethan. Words alone cannot express the sorrow we share together as we try to adjust to a life without Mimi. She will be dearly missed. The family will have a private service and request no flowers. A donation to the Diabetes Association of America in memory of Lois would be greatly appreciated for all who care to offer their condolences. Condolences may also be sent directly to F14repret@aol.com if so desired.
