On February 16, 2021, Tuesday evening we lost an amazing woman, Guadalupe Toledo-Vera. She was only 50 years old and a child at heart. She passed away at RML Specialty Hospital in Hinsdale where she was recovering from heart failure and calciphilaxis. Guadalupe was born to Victor and Diana Toledo on July 23, 1970 in Chicago, Illinois. She is survived by four siblings, Diana (Zvika), Victor, Theresa, and Ana (Jesus) Toledo. She graduated from Kelvyn Park High School and earned a degree in Phlebotomy. On March 17, 2000, she was married to Jose Manuel Vera, had a beautiful wedding ceremony in Guadalajara, Mexico. They met for the first time when he came to do some handyman work at her home in Joliet, Illinois and he convinced her to go out with him as a payback for the work. They fell in love and they were each other's soulmate. Together raised two beautiful daughters, Ariana and Miranda Vera. She loved her daughter's deeply and was very proud of them. She worked at the University of Chicago Hospital. She loved the medical field and enjoyed helping people. She had a special gift at making people laugh.
