November 6, 1993 - February 20, 2022
Karina Joy Rodriguez was born on November 6, 1993, stealing the thunder of her mom's birthday and becoming the best birthday present her mom ever received. Karina was the youngest of all her siblings, but was always the first to bring them all together. Karina lived most of her life in the Thornton area, where she made many lifelong friends. Her son Josiah was born early in her life, and they grew together throughout the rest of her days. Being his mom made her into the hard working, compassionate, independent woman she remained. Karina met Sam in 2015 while working together at Bovas, and it was quickly clear that he was the love of her life. They spent 6 years together before having their daughter Aria in 2021, and she was the light of both of their lives. Karina was driven, vivacious, and fiercely loyal. She never left an 'I love you' unsaid. She made everyone feel welcomed, no matter the event, and her jokes and infectious laugh made you feel included at all times. You often heard her before you saw her... Her voice was loud and strong and she always stood up for what she felt was right. Her outer beauty was unmatched, and even on days when she was not trying, she was absolutely stunning. She loved drinking tequila, and you knew she loved you when she had you taking a shot with her, even though since she had baby Aria she hadn't been able to do them like before. She was strong willed and worked hard her whole life to give her babies everything they could ever want. She was an amazing mommy who loved her kids to the moon and beyond. She loved her babies fiercely, and just seeing her post pictures or talk about her kids gave you the sense that she was born to be their mom. She was also an incredible auntie who had unique bonds with each of her nieces and nephews. She remembered the things that were important to them, she kept them on the right path, and she let them know she loved them every chance she got. She was in love with the life she'd worked so hard to create, surrounded by the people who mattered most to her. She will be missed by everyone her light touched, and will never be forgotten. She is survived by her son Josiah, daughter Aria, mother Debby, brother Dominic, brother Anthony (Jodi), sister Feliz (Dominic), sister Mileiah (Jesse), and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. She was preceded in death by her father Anthony, grandmother Bernice, grandmother Stella, grandfather Cesario, nephew Alex, and cousin Brett. Her beautiful light was taken much too soon, but will always remain in our memories, hearts, and stories for years to come. Anyone wishing to contribute to her memorial account can go to any Wells Fargo branch and ask to make a deposit to the "Donations for Karina Rodriguez" account, which will help with funeral expenses as well as to care for her children going forward. Donations can also be sent via Zelle to 720.220.1056.
