Sunrise 08/12/46 Calexico, Ca.- Sunset 10/30/11 Moses Lake, Wa.

After a short but courageous battle, our Mother chose to die with dignity. Home, holding her favorite, a yellow rose, music playing Mom took her last breath in the arms of her children.

With heavy hearts but also at peace, we know she is with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Mom always made sure we were safe and warm, never needing a thing. That went for all who entered our home. No one ever left hungry or cold...but rather, full and smiling. Always enough to share our home was a safe haven for all, especially Gods winged and four legged creatures....never strange to find a blind cat, three legged dog, snakes, chickens, rabbits and "Lucky"..the broken winged duck who lived with us for a year...and was house trained. Her animals were never caged.

Mom laughed loud, loved deeply and Heaven knows how she loved to dance....A simple woman, who moved mountains. ...Enjoy the beans and tortillas Jesus....

Our mother was preceded in passing by her father Felipe', her mother Francis, husband William and her two angels, our sister Kelly Ann and granddaughter Isabelle.

She lives on in her children: Manuel, Jesse, Martin (Dana), Santiago, Diane (Brad) and Marina. Her Grandchildren: Rhonda, Trina, Cortney, Marlea, Kelie, William, Destinee, Anna-Celia, Adriel, Bryden, Brenden, Vincent, Alex, Bryson, Alex and Skyla. Great-grandchildren: Devon, Malekhi, Ra'niah, Harmony Grace and Angel Isaiah..and her siblings: Manuel, Phillip, Mary and Arturo....

Mom never forgot where she came from and also leaves behind a large and beautiful familia in California whom she missed and loved dearly.

Services will be held at 1:00 p.m., Friday, Nov. 4, 2011 at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, 200 N. Dale Rd., Moses Lake. Please sign the online guestbook or leave a note for the family at Arrangements are in care of Kayser's Chapel & Crematory.
