Neliza Cajulis Mendoza • April 11, 2022
Neliza Mendoza, 56, walked home with God on April 11, 2022. The Lord graced us with her presence through the late Leopoldo and Amelia Mendoza on August 3,1965 in Cavite City, Philippines. So no one told her life was gonna be this way. No matter how many challenges she faces through life, Nellie cherishes every moment with a headstrong disposition. She loves luxurious things, from glamorous jewelry to designer handbags and shoes. But her wealth truly comes from the amount of individuals who value her.
As a friend, she’ll be there for you. To friends, she is Nellie; to family, she is Nel. She is survived by her husband, Jaime Ramirez, and their dogs. To the ones who know her as Tita Nel, she is very much adored as an aunt, best friend, and mother to her 11 nieces and five nephews and her 33 great nieces and nephews. She really is the favorite aunt.
Being the youngest out of seven, she is also survived by five siblings and their respective spouses; Rosario and John Adams, Daisy Reyes, Herminia Medina, Estelita and Fidel Alegado, and Ruben and Irene Mendoza. She is preceded in death by her parents, Leopoldo and Amelia; her sister, Edna, and brother-in-law, Jose Balacanao; and brother-in-law, Angelito Medina.
To Dr. Edward Friedland, our family extends our utmost gratitude to you for not only taking care of Nellie as a patient but being her friend.
Our family welcomes friends to her celebration of life from 1 to 1:30 p.m. on April 18 at Pensacola Memorial Gardens, located at 7433 Pine Forest Road, Pensacola, FL 32526. The service begins at 1:30 p.m. with Deacon Rey Castellano of Little Flower Catholic Church presiding.
