Erin Covarrubias 2

Erin Emilia Covarrubias was taken from her family in a tragic accident on Monday evening, August 3, 2020.

Born in Phoenix she brought joy, beauty and a quick wit to our family. She was a precocious and sassy child and despite being a social butterfly she excelled in school.

Everyone was her friend and her teachers always spoke highly of her. Erin was gifted in so many ways. She performed contemporary dance with her dance class at Centennial High School. She sang with the children’s choir at St. Joan of Arc Parish and she enjoyed painting and sketching, even creating her own font types. Erin loved watching movies with her family and she and her brothers made a game of quoting movie lines with each other.

Some of her favorite things included the color green, the K-Pop band BTS, Coach purses, Hot Cheetos, big lashes and pretty nails. But truth be told, she probably loved Hot Cheetos the most!

Her utter joy was being a sister. Having seven siblings kept her busy with swimming, crafts, and cooking. We will miss her dishes on Pasta Monday and all her baked treats. Did we mention that she loved Chinese food and pizza (our mother food) and just about anything her mom and dad cooked.

Her love of our faith was a blessing to so many. She was fearless in defending life on social media and took part in the local March for Life with her grandmother. She attended the annual Catholic Women’s Conference and looked forward to volunteering at the conference in the future.

Just 17, she had her whole life ahead of her as she was beginning her senior year of high school and was on track to graduate early. Her goals for this year included building great relationships, getting her license, and saving money.

She was the best of all of us. She was gentle, loving, beautiful and kind. She has left a void in our family that can never be filled.

Erin is survived by her parents, Jonathan and Denise Covarrubias, her siblings, Noah, David, Isaiah, Josiah, Jordyn, Zechariah and Cephas, her grandmothers, Roberta Bazaldua and Mary Aguirre, her uncles Anthony Bazaldua and Ricky Baca, and her aunt Anna Aguirre and countless aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who are family. She is preceded in death by her sister Samantha and her great-grandfather, Robert Bazaldua.

Visitation and Rosary will take place at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church, 2312 E. Campbell Avenue, Phoenix on Tuesday, August 11, 2020 from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. with concluding Rosary. The Funeral Mass will be held Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Thomas the Apostle with Burial immediately following at Holy Cross Cemetery.

Condolences for the family of “COVARRUBIAS, ERIN EMILIA”

Erin was a blessing to and blessed by an amazing family. There are no adequate words of comfort, other than knowing she is with Him.

With love,

We are so sorry for your loss. Be assured of our prayers in this difficult time and in the months to come. Your family is a light to so many, and we will hold you up in prayer. May Jesus shine his peace and light upon all of you, and may Erin rest in His embrace forever.

Condolence from April Yeager on August 11th, 2020 7:39 am

Our family is deeply moved by this tragedy. Our 16-yr-old, Jacob, prays nightly for Erin’s soul during family prayer, as well as our 18-yr-old. Both remember Erin from STA youth group and my husband was touched by her presence at mass. She often sat near us. We pray you all find peace amidst the incredible pain, and to remember that Jesus wept for Lazarus’ death. God bless you all… eternal rest grant unto Erin, Oh Lord, and May perpetual light shine upon her.

Condolence from Marie Robb on August 11th, 2020 4:11 pm

My heart goes out to all of you during this difficult time. She is so precious to you, but even more so to our Lord who is holding her in His arms right now. Please know that there will be many, many prayers going out to your family from ours. We know how difficult it is. Much love and condolences.

I wish I had the perfect words to bring you some comfort. My heart is heavy and full of love for all of you.
When I see her beautiful smile in all the pictures you shared, I see all the love and joy you poured into her that will be reflected back to you from Heaven.

May the Angels continue to carry you and bring you comfort.

Elsa Robinson and Family

Always Praying For Your Family And That Erin Rests In Peace Now. She Definitely Made Such An Impact On Everybody Who Crossed Her. Not A Day Goes By That I Don’t Think Of Her. I Bring A Picture Of Her Everywhere I Go So I Can Feel A Bit Close To Her. She Taught Me Love And Strength, She Was the sweetest most caring Friend I’ve Truly Ever Had.
