Maria Del "Carmen" Rivera

Maria “Carmen” Del "Carmen" Rivera, age 61, of Enola, passed away on Saturday, October 29, 2022.  Carmen was born on Friday, November 25, 1960, in El Salvador to the late Manuel Cea and Maria Esmeralda Rivera.  In addition to her parents, Carmen is preceded in death by her loving partner, Francisco Ponce Coronado; and her three brothers.

Carmen’s survivors include her five children: David Rivera of El Salvador; Carlos Rivera and his wife, Elly, of Lewisberry; Esmeralda Godoy and her husband, Raul, of Camp Hill; Liliana Solorio and her husband, Noe, of Enola; Paula Rivera and her husband, Abraham, of Enola; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren; her great great-granddaughter; her four siblings; and many nieces and nephews.

A hard worker from a very young age to help her mother with her siblings. Strong, dedicated, and driven mother and father for all five of her children. Most of her joy came from help caring for her grandchildren, and to have her children gathered for holidays and special occasions. She was a true matriarch, and always trying to embed in her children the importance of getting along and being a united front. Family will always be family, “One day I won’t be here, and you guys is all you’ll have”.

Carmen’s family will be celebrating her life privately.  Burial will be in Mechanicsburg Cemetery in Mechanicsburg.

Carmen’s family has entrusted her care to Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory in Mechanicsburg, (717) 766-3421.  Read Carmen’s full obituary, view her memorial video and portrait, offer condolences and sympathy, share stories and memories, upload photographs and videos, light a candle and sign her official guest book by visiting
