Esther Magdaleno Obituary
Esther Magdaleno October 6, 1926 - May 11, 2013 Esther Magdaleno was born on October 6, 1926 in Corcoran, CA to Modesto and Petra Guereca. She passed away on May 11, 2013 with her family by her side. Esther married her husband Manuel Magdaleno in Mexico in 1943 and in 1948 they settled in Delano, CA where Esther continued to live until her death. Esther enjoyed tending to her garden and taking annual vacations to Carpinteria (which would always include a side trip to Chumash Resort.) In her younger years, she was a skilled seamstress until she sustained an eye injury. Esther was a great cook and always made sure no one left her table with an empty stomach. We are all mourning the loss of our sweet Mother, Grandmother, Aunt and Friend. She is preceded in death by her husband of 66 years, Manuel; daughter Yolanda Gracia, Grandson Christian Gracia; parents Modesto and Petra Guereca; and sibling Modesto Guereca Jr, Adela Guereca, and Juan Guereca. She is survived by daughter Libby Solórzano, son-in-law Jack Solorzano, son Rogelio Magdaleno (Hortencia), daughters Irma Del Rio (Fernando), Sandy Viray, Rosie Pangaldan (Carlos), Norma Anderson (Jim) and Theresa Kruger (Kurt). Esther had 21 grandchildren, 33 great grandchildren and 10 great-great grandchildren. Visitation will be on May 19, 2013 from 4-8 pm at Delano Mortuary, and Mass will be at St. Mary's Catholic Church, 910 Lexington Street, Delano, CA www.bakersfield.com/obits
