Emperatriz del Pilar Gonzalez

June 5, 1929 ~ May 10, 2023 (age 93) 93 Years Old


Our beloved Emperatriz del Pilar Gonzalez Mejias passed away peacefully on the morning of Wednesday, May 10th, 2023,  at the age of 93 with the love of her family surrounding her.

Though she has left this world, Pilar's loving heart will remain forever with us. Her spirit is carried on by her loving family and friends from all walks of life.  

As the eldest, Pilar took great pride in caring for her two siblings (Clelia & Carlos), as well as her dearest mother. Showing great bravery, Pilar made her way to Canada in the 80s where she worked hard, and continuously cared for everyone around her. Pilar was influenced by her family to be a loving and caring person, and she spoiled everyone around her with her kindness and generosity. Pilar always had a strong connection to her Chilean culture and traditions, whereby participating in typical Chilean dances along with her friends and family brought her great joy.

She will be missed by her niece and nephews; Marcela, Carlos Emilio & Mario. In addition to her great nieces and nephews, as well as numerous extended family members and friends.

The family wishes to thank all those who have extended emotional support during this time and would like for you to join us and celebrate Pilar's beautiful life. A memorial service will be held on Sunday May 21st, 2023 from 1-3 PM at St.Johns Dixie Cemetery & Crematorium.
