Nydia Lissette Aponte
June 23, 1962 ~ September 4, 2022 (age 60) 60 Years Old
Nydia "Lissette" Aponte Roldan, was full of life and joy. She was an amazing: daughter, sister, mother, grandmother and friend. She was adopted as Mama by everyone she met.
She passed away Sunday, September 4, 2022 in Tampa FL. At the age of 60. She was born on June 23, 1962 in Caguas, Puerto Rico. She was the first of four siblings, the daughter of Aida and Pedro, the sister of Enid, Peter and Ivelisse. She became a successful and respectable woman and business owner after the completion of high school and beauty school. She owned her beauty salon and she then married and had her first and only son Richard, followed by daughters Minaida and Nydia.
During her young years she had the privilege to pursue music by attending and graduating from el Conservatorio de Musica en Puerto Rico and even sing back up for one of her favorite all time artists, Sophie. Years later she made the courageous decision of moving to Florida where she started a new chapter with her children and months later welcomed her youngest daughter Nicole. She was a warrior and the true definition of a hard working woman. She then became more involved with her church and served in the worship team, once again following her passion for music, but also finding a new passion for her love for God. A seed she ensured to instill in her children.
She was dedicated to the ones she loved and opened the doors of her house to anyone in need. She was the rock that many never had, she was a shoulder to cry on, she was shelter, she was trust, she was peace, she was joy. She taught patience through her love and she was a teacher of many more lessons. She taught us how to move on from negativity, how to keep going and how to make something out of nothing. She taught us respect and motivation. She was bright, open minded, and a woman with a sense of humor that was fueled by joy and happiness. Her essence left a mark everywhere she went. She was confident, and took pride in all of her hard work. She loved building memories with her husband Joey, working together, traveling the world, and taking road trips. The way they joked as a couple, cared and loved each other was truly admirable.
She loved building memories with her 8 grandchildren who loved her very much: Jasael, Yasaliz, Nayalis, Daisiliz, Richard Joel, Avayah, Bendi and Leo will know their Abu and will never forget her, Minaida will assure it, Nydia will assure it and Daisy will assure it. She honored her mother all the days of her life and taught us the importance of honoring our parents. She lead by example and truly left her imprint on this world simply by being herself. Her seed, her legacy, and talent will continue to flourish for years ahead and flow through generations to come. She will be proud of her legacy, and what she has left behind. Mama will be forever loved and missed by her husband, son and daughters.
