Audriona A. Armendarez
Audriona A. Armendarez (31) returned to heaven on March 22, 2021. Audriona was born in Salt Lake City Utah on August 17th, 1989 to a loving family. Audriona graduated from West High School in 2007. She was very driven with a “go getter” mentality. Her passion for the medical field helped her be at her happiest which was being able to help others. The outdoors and going to the gym were just a few of her favorite things to do. Whether it was hiking, floating the river, or getting in a good work out, if it was outside or adventurous she was on board. If anyone was a die hard Steelers fan you could count on her to express her love for her Steelers by swinging her “terrible towel” high above her head yelling at the top of her lungs. Audriona always enjoyed some good music and spending time with friends and family. Her biggest accomplishment and greatest joy were her daughters Jayde and Jaycelynn. She loved them more than life and will continue to do so as she watches over them.
Her Family will forever remember her by her over the top personality, witty attitude, and her protectiveness for the ones she loved. She is survived by her mother Kristi Bartholomew (Lewis Walker) and Father Frankie Armendarez (“Honey” Michelle Miera Armendarez), Grandmother Mary Balderas. Her daughters: Jayde Garcia, Jaycelynn Serrano, (Nick Serrano) and her “rock” Mychal Robinson. Her siblings who she adored Leilani Kioa (Tom Kioa), Arasie Armendarez (AJ Garcia), Martin Chacon (Angelica Chacon), Myles Merrity, & Davin Merrity. The fun aunty will be missed by her nieces and nephews: Sila Kioa, Luka Garcia, Arsenio Chacon, and Aniceto Chacon. Audriona was deeply loved and will be missed by her many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
