She was a member of the St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Lebanon. Ligia was a devoted mother, grandmother, and homemaker. In addition to her grandchildren, she truly loved the many children she cared for over the years. She enjoyed being outdoors, dancing, and was a wonderful cook, known by her family as the best flan maker in the world.
Survivors include her daughter, Natalia Agudelo and significant other, Matthew Hamilton, of Lebanon; four grandchildren, Tommy, Lucas, Toby, and Cynthia all of Lebanon; as well as many extended family members.
