Zoila Alicia Herrera de Orellana was born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras but spent most of her adult life living in New York City. An excellent mathematician, she would become the principal of the Escuela Petronila Barrios de CabaƱas at a very young age. On vacation to visit her sister in New York City, she met another native Honduran whom she would marry in 1959. Zoila Alicia Herrera and German Orellana would spend the next nearly 62 years together. She put her mathematical skills to use as a billing machine operator for the Georg Jensen Company. When Zoila Alicia had her first child, her devoted husband started working at several jobs so she could be a stay-at-home mother and raise her three sons, Herman, Oscar, and Eduardo. A caring mother, she would guide her children to pursue college educations and helped her sister raise their daughter, Avelina. She was blessed later in life with daughters Bernadette and Debbie when her sons married. Zoila Alicia was also a kind and loving grandmother to her four wonderful grandchildren and four grandnieces. She was the last surviving child of Avelina Cruz and Santiago Herrera and is now in eternal peace with her parents and eight siblings.

In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to the St. Francis Breadline and Dementia Society of America . Thank you.

My dear Suegra. You welcomed me into the family and always treated me as a daughter. I could not have asked for a more caring, loving mother in law or a better abuelita for my children. I will miss you but I know you will be watching over the family.
