 Zoila was a truly devote catholic, her only love was Jesus, she devoted her life to be a true disciple of Christ.  The 12 Fruits of Holy Spirit could be found in Zoila. Her joy and love of family, she had this inner peace and patience and her kindness and goodness.  Zoila was bilingual and so she touched so many hearts with her love of Jesus Christ.  She had this goodness and just giving nature about her.  She loved the arts, music, dancing and just having a good time. 

 God gave Zoila so many talents.  Her charity with working with the Women’s Prison in Houston, translating for the Prison Calendar and education of Pro Life.  In her earlier days she was instrumental in Rev. Louis Henao of the Latin American Apostolate because of her volunteer work which qualified the Apostolate for a VIP Contribution. Working translations for the churches where she attended mass on a daily basis at St. John Vianney and St. Maximillian Kolbe where she was part of the Baptismal Ministry with nieces Solangel Calix Miranda and Rosibel Estopinal she always wanted to bring people to the Lord and it was so rewarding for her to be a part of the first introduction to Jesus our Lord, Luke 18:16 “Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these”.

"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28

Among all of Zoila’s accomplishments was her love for her family.
