Esperanza O. Molier de Spindola, 83, passed away on the morning of Friday, March 05, 2021 in Temple. She was born in Cuba, in the city of Santiago de las Vegas on December 18, 1937; later she became Venezuelan and a legal resident of the United States.
From a very young age Esperanza had a cataract that left her blind. Despite many attempts to regain her sight she never stopped fighting for success. She was rehabilitated in the city of Caracas, Venezuela, in the reading and writing of the Braille System for the blind. Later she ended her rehabilitation at Light House for the blind in Miami, Florida. Once she felt confident with her instruction she returned to Venezuela, and from her home, she began to teach blind students; later and with much effort and work, she founded the Center for Rehabilitation and Habilitation for the blind. It was the first center of its kind in the central region of Venezuela. Not being satisfied with this and seeing the need to prepare the blind in the field, she founded the School of Rehabilitation for the Blind Venezuelan Peasant in the City of Tinaquillo.
She married Mr. Arturo Spindola Sánchez on February 14, 1951. He has preceded her in death. She leaves behind to treasure her memory her two sons, Dr. Lazaro Arturo Spindola Molier and Deacon Jesus Spindola Molier, two daughters-in-law, Dr. Dana A. Zavadzkaz and Yudaima A. Rodríguez de Spindola, and her grandchildren Verónica Spindola, Mario Spindola, Laura Spindola, Oscar Alejandro Rojas, Lorena Spindola, Fiorella Spindola, Arturo Jose Spindola, Jesús Arturo Spindola as well as numerous great-grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
