A pure-hearted young woman who loved deeply, passed away unexpectedly on August 8, 2016. Though Liliana’s time with us was limited to her sixteen years, she forever changed the lives of her family and friends.
A beautiful soul who easily felt compassion toward those less fortunate, Liliana would occasionally be moved to tears for humanity’s suffering. Though she’d pray fervently for those in need, Liliana pined to do much more. She will forever be remembered as generous, sensible, funny, creative, and even musical.
Liliana loved to laugh and her joy was contagious to those around her. Her kind-heartedness was tangible to everyone who knew her. Though she didn’t have a favorite place to be, she was happy wherever she found herself surrounded by those who loved her most, her family and friends.
When recalling her creative side, we easily remember her drawings of family, friends, animals, and cartoons. She was a phenomenal artist! Her creative abilities were also apparent in the kitchen. She enjoyed cooking and baking, and even aspired to becoming a professional chef. Crepes were Liliana’s specialty, and though it took her some time to perfect her recipe, she made the most delicious crepes around. Some were filled with strawberries and cream, while others had a pizza filling. Food was a passion for her. Her favorite dishes include spaghetti and sauce without meatballs, her dad’s eggs with tomato sauce, estrellados, and her sister, Julieta’s rice. She also had a sweet tooth and was fond of Nutella, peanut butter, and the Frapés from McDonald’s.
We will miss hearing her voice burst into spontaneous song, her laugh, her kindness, her smile, and her many selfies. Her love will live on in our hearts.
She was preceded in death by her great-grandparents; Valentin Dubon Garcia and Maria Petrona, Felipe Bahena, and Elias Castro; and great-uncles, Gregorio Garcia Dubon, Evelio Bahena, and Bonifacio Castro.
Liliana is survived by her proud and loving parents, Belarmino and Verenice Dubon; sisters, Julieta, Emily, Beverly, and Sulema Dubon; two uncles; five aunts; many cousins and other extended family members; grandparents, Samuel and Juliana Dubon, Jaquelino and Isidra Bahena; her beloved boyfriend, Austin Lee Grant; friends, Valeria Lopez, Marletta Marie Gloria Grant; and countless other treasured friends.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Liliana’s memory to Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church, 1729 Stop 30 Road, Hendersonville, TN 37075. Please be sure to indicate your gift in memory of Liliana Dubon.

    The Dubon family and loved ones have my deepest sympathy, losing Liliana so young at 16, way too soon. Revelations 21: 4

    (2 Corinthians 4:18) “while we keep our eyes, not on the things seen, but on the things unseen. For the things seen are temporary, but the things unseen are everlasting.”

    1. When eyes of blind ones see again
    And ears of deaf ones hear again,
    When deserts blossom as the rose
    And from parched ground fresh water flows,
    When lame ones leap just like the hart,
    When loved ones never have to part,
    Such blessed times you’ll realize,
    If you keep your eyes on the prize.
    2. When tongues of mute ones speak again,
    When old ones will be young again,
    When earth will yield her rich increase
    And all good things will never cease,
    When songs of children fill the air,
    When joy and peace are ev’rywhere,
    Then, too, you’ll see the dead arise,
    If you keep your eyes on the prize.
    3. When wolves and lambs will feed as one,
    When bears and calves bask in the sun,
    A mere young boy will lead them all,
    And they will heed his childish call.
    When tears belong to yesterday,
    When fears and pain have passed away,
    You’ll see how God these things supplies,
    If you keep your eyes on the prize.

    I am so sorry for your loss. From reading her obituary, Liliana was a beautiful gem in everyones life that knew her. Oh what fond memories you have of her! Death is truly an enemy but the bible promises that there will be a resurrection on our loved ones as stated at John 5:28,29, and then Revelation 21:3,4 will be fulfilled.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. Death is never welcomed, but it seems to be something we all are accustomed too. Please be assured that the bible promises that God will soon undo death (Revelation 21:3,4) and he promises in John 5:28,29 to resurrect our loved ones right here on earth. I hope these promises as well as your wonderful memories bring you comfort.

    I have never met this beautiful girl. I was looking for another memorial when I ran across this one. My heart hurts for all of you. Just remember that it is only temporary. One day everyone will be reunited again. You have so many great memories to cherish until that day comes. God bless you all.
