ONCE NEIGHBOURHOOD leader Felicidad Sanchez passed away on Wednesday morning at the General Hospital of Alicante, just before her 90th birthday.
Sanchez presided over the association of neighbours of La Voz de la Florida from the 80’s until its last days.
The emblematic neighbourhood leader suffered from a kidney disease and although she had been in bed at home for some time, she was determined to continue her neighbourhood activity until the end.
The remains were taken to the Tanatorio de la Siempreviva on Wednesday, where the funeral was held at 12 noon on Thursday.
Felicidad Sanchez spent nearly four decades as president of the La Voz de Florida Neighborhood Association. In 2009, she received an honorary mention in the XVII edition of the City of Alicante awards for her dedication to the commerce in the neighbourhood.
In 2012, her name was inaugurated on a plaque in the Centro Comunitario y Social del Distrito 3 of Alicante.
Sanchez was widowed and childless.
