Carmen touched many live with her upbeat spirit, mischievous humor, positive outlook on life, and living and seizing the moment. She was born in Lima, Peru and graduated from Colegio Corazón de Jesús - Barrios Altos, Lima, Perú. She attended Golden Gate University in San Francisco, and then worked in the accounting departments of I. Magnin and GAP, Inc’s. at their headquarters in San Francisco for 16-years.

Carmen was a hard fighter, intelligent woman, excellent mother for her children, and very faithful to her husband Ronald. She stood out for her very strong character and charisma in the workplace, and with her family and friends. Her whole family is very sad to see her leave, but she is already resting in Heaven. We will always love you and have you in our hearts - Rest in Peace, Carmen “China” (Chyna) Arostegui.
