Madison G. Diaz “Madi”, 9, of Aurora, IL passed away unexpectedly on March 23, 2020. She was born in Aurora, IL on April 12, 2010 the daughter of Victor and Angelina Diaz. She would have turned 10 years old on Easter Sunday this year. Madi was a 4th grade student at Nicholson Elementary. She was a bright spirit with an outgoing personality; her smile could light up a room. She was hard working, determined, and full of life. She was energetic and often used her energy to do cartwheels all over the house. She was an animal lover who aspired to be a Veterinarian one day. Singing, ice cream, popsicles, the color blue, playing board games, throwing darts and playing games with grandma and hopping on grandpa’s wheelchair for a ride were among her favorite things. Every time she saw grandma she asked for a mint. Madi was on the Premier Gymnastics team and her strong willed, determined personality made her a fierce competitor. Anything she put her mind to she would accomplish. She loved her older sister Isabella and wanted to be just like her. The Diaz family was a tight knit family who was always together. You could often find them out on the hiking trails. Madi’s bright smile will be dearly missed but her loving spirit will live on in each of the lives she touched.
She is survived by her parents Victor and Angie Diaz; sister, Isabella; maternal grandparents, Jerry and Marlene Byron; paternal grandparents, Salomon Diaz-Garcia and Sarita Ma Luz Hernandez-Hernandez; Tio Salomon (Rita Torres-Mendoza) Diaz, Tia Gaby (Tio Tomas) Canizalez, uncle, Nick (Nellie Blackdeer) Alvarez; Godparents, Tia Alejandra Cuevas and uncle Frank Diaz; cousins, Morgan, Kasayna, Maddux, Samantha, Frankie and Alexandria.
