Elena Barrera Rivera Obituary
Elena Barrera Rivera April 23, 1947 - July 29, 2012 Raised in Rio Grande, Texas, "Guera" lived the majority of her life in Lamont, California where she worked and raised her family. After coming home from a day of work at Willits & New Combs, where she worked for 22 years, she could often be found in front of the TV watching her novelas. She leaves to cherish her memory her husband Robert, her sons Fabian and Felix and her daughter Pam, along with their spouses; grandsons Fabian Jr., Sebastian, and Isaac, and her only granddaughter, Clarissa. She was also blessed with a great-grandson, Brayden Bently, along with many other family members, friends and neighbors who will miss her. Though of few words, Guera enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, always sharing in the joy of the occasion at hand. Guera was called to the glory of heaven after a short, though hard fought, battle with cancer.
