Sylvia Melendez Huerta Obituary
In loving memory of Sylvia Melendez Huerta, who passed away peacefully on December 5, 2013, surrounded by friends and family. Sylvia was 88 years old.

She was born in Barstow, CA, on June 19, 1925, and she made her mark on the world early as an airplane riveter during World War II. Later she would meet her husband Phillip Huerta, get married, and spend 62 years with him in both Grimes and Colusa, CA. Friends and family will always remember her for her warm and welcoming home and for the quiet dignity with which she led her life.

She is preceded in death by her beloved husband, as well as her youngest son, Gabriel.

She and Phillip have four other sons: Paul, David, Richard, and Rudy, who all live in California. She is also survived by her younger sister, Nemesia Melendez Estrada; 13 grandchildren; 20 great- grandchildren; and 1 great-great grandchild. Sylvia will be greatly missed, but we are blessed to have been a part of her life.

A wake will be held on Tuesday, December 10th, from 4pm-8pm. Services will be conducted on Wednesday, December 11th, at 11am. Both events will take place at the Chapel of the Twin Cities, 715 Shasta St., Yuba City, CA. Internment will be at Sutter Cemetery, Sutter, CA.
