Izmira Irma Palomares



Izmira Irma Palomares, 61, was welcomed into the kingdom of the Lord on Monday, August 27, 2018. She was born in Laredo, Texas on May 20, 1957.

Izmira was an incredibly selfless person who gave her heart and soul to her community and especially to those in need. She had the honor of working for Street Reach Program for many years, was an original care provider at Little River Medical Outreach Program, and was proud to be the Marketing Director for an entire region for Wellcare Health Plans; where she assisted the company’s overall growth by putting on baby showers at local clinics, Dr. Offices, and wellness fairs. Izmira consistently volunteered with helping the less fortunate. In her free time, Izmira loved to celebrate her Mexican heritage. She was enthusiastic about showing and educating people about her customs and upbringing.

Izmira will forever be remembered for the amazing mother she was as well as the beacon of hope and strength in her community.

Left to cherish Izmira’s memory are her daughter, Leila El-Assi and her beautiful son, Liam Izmir El-Assi both of Conway, SC; as well as numerous friends, neighbors and grateful co-workers.
