Life Sketch

Daria B Miranda or better known as Gramita was born in La Villa De Fuente, Mexico on June, 11, 1932. She passed away peacefully on March 20, 2024 in Heyburn Idaho. At the center of Daria's life was her unwavering faith—a cornerstone upon which she built her life. A devoted Christian, she found comfort and strength in her relationship with Jesus, drawing upon her faith as a source of guidance and comfort during hard times. Humble in her convictions, she lived out her faith not only in words but also in her actions, demonstrating the values of compassion, generosity, and selflessness. From a young age, Daria faced challenges that would have broken lesser souls. Yet, with a heart filled with determination and a spirit unyielding to despair, she navigated life's rough waters with grace and courage. Despite the storms that raged around her, she stood firm, as a pillar of strength for her family and all who knew her. Daria met Filimon Miranda in San Antonio, Texas. In 1956 they moved to Ontario, Oregon and were married on June 24, 1957. They resided in Ontario, Oregon until 1976. During their time in Ontario, Daria worked at Ore-Ida on the graveyard shift while she and Filimon raised 6 children. They also shared their love of food by starting up a

small Tamale business which then grew into a restaurant named Miranda’s Cafe. In 1976, Filimon and Daria moved their family to Heyburn, Idaho. Daria worked at J.R Simplot in Heyburn until roughly 2001 when she retired. Daria's journey was filled with the challenges of motherhood but also by the burden of caring for a bedridden spouse. In the face of this challenge, she did not falter, her love and dedication shone brightly

as she selflessly tended to her beloved partner's needs with unwavering devotion and tenderness.

At the heart of Daria's story was her role as a mother—a role she embraced with fierce devotion and unwavering love. Raising six children, she weathered the trials of parenthood with grace and strength, instilling in her children the values of integrity, resilience, and compassion. When her daughter was diagnosed with Cancer she remained strong for her family and cared for her daughter up until she passed in 1989. When her daughter passed she filled the role of mother to her grandson raising him as one of her own. Her home, though modest, was filled with a warmth and love that knew no limits, a shelter in which her children flourished under her nurturing care.

Despite the challenges she faced, Daria remained steadfast in her belief that she was blessed, not by material wealth, but by the grace of a higher power. She lived a life of humility and gratitude, ever mindful of the blessings bestowed upon her, and never hesitating to extend a helping hand to those in need. Daria retired from J.R Simplot in 2001 she worked for 6 years as a grandparent at Head Start. She also worked as a foster grandparent at White Pine Elementary’s summer school where she met her good friend Claudia Rodriguez and became a full time Gramita in her classroom at Dworshak Elementary. She had a lasting impact on all of the students, often she would see students around town and they would greet her with so much love. Daria treasured the time she spent as a grandma to all of her students.

As the sun sets on Daria's earthly journey, her legacy endures—a legacy of unwavering faith, resilience, and strength that she passed on to her children and grandchildren. Though she may no longer walk among us, her spirit lives on in the hearts of all who were touched by her grace, her love, and her unwavering devotion to God and family. 

In her memory, we find comfort and inspiration from her life’s journey.

A reminder that even in the darkest of times, the light of faith and love can illuminate

the road ahead.
