OBITUARY: Lydia Grace Hernández


Lydia Grace Hernández was born into the arms of Jesus on Wednesday, July 20, 2022.

She was the beloved daughter of Hannah (née Palmer) and Jaime Hernández of Springfield, Tennessee, and the little sister of Clayton, Stephen, Christian, and Brandon. Her brothers eagerly prayed for a sister, and her life was an answer to their prayers and the prayers of many others.

Along with her parents and her brothers, she is survived by her maternal grandparents, Lawrence and Beth Palmer, and her paternal grandparents, Roberto and Dominga Hernández. She is also survived by many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

She is preceded in death by her cousin Tirzah Palmer, as well as by her great-grandparents, Earl and Dorothe Bachert, Charles and Lorene Palmer, Faustino Hernández and Carmela Ramírez, and Demetrio Hernández and Juventina Zavala.
