She was a hard worker and did everything to support her family as a single mother of 4.

She instilled in all of her children how important it is to work hard, always look out for each other and remain a close and loving family.

As we grew older, her and our Nana (Jovita) were always welcoming to our friends and offered home made warm tortillas with butter or beans. As we brought our future spouses home, she always sat them down to have a meal, No Exceptions.

She was instrumental in helping raise her grandchildren, no need for babysitters or daycare, which was a blessing to us all. She was proud of all their accomplishments. She was a perfect example of how to love your children unconditionally.

She was an avid reader, she would read the newspaper front to back and work the crossword puzzle, a trait her son Alfonso does to this day. She loved all books, you often would find her crocheting or sewing. In later years she enjoyed jigsaw puzzles and working on word finder books. She also enjoyed watching all sports.
