Obituary of Arminda LaPoint

(Mima) Arminda La Point

On May 9, 2017, The Lord has called our Angel on Earth home with him to dance with the Angels. The Lord took Mima to be with him at the age of 84. Arminda was born on November 14, 1932 in El Paso, Texas to parents Salvador and Pura Gomez.

Arminda has two brothers and two sisters. She married the love of her life, James La Point on February 9, 1957 in Los Angeles, California. They had three beautiful children together; Charles La Point, David La Point, and Kathy Fortenberry. Arminda went to nursing school and became a Registered nurse. She was a great nurse to all. She made friends with everyone and was loved by all. She resided in Lake Havasu for the last two years and before that, she and her husband lived in Mohave Valley for 40 years.

Arminda is preceded in death by her husband, James La Point; son, Charles La Point; great-granddaughter, Vallory Perea.

She is survived by her children, David (Denene) La Point, Kathy (Allen) Fortenberry; twelve grandchildren; eleven great-grandchildren. Mima will be missed dearly, but is now dancing with the Angels, seeing her husband, son, and holding baby Vallory in her arms. She loved babies. May God hold you in the palm of his hand until we meet again.

No service is planned at this time.
