Frances Cortez Obituary
Frances Cortez June 16, 1923 - April 21, 2013 Mom went to sleep on Sunday, April 21, 2013 at home with us around her. We will love and miss mom always. Her life was fulfilled, she was a hard worker, a good cook, and she loved to sew and still did until 2 weeks ago. Mom loved her grandkids a lot. Mom taught me the value of life, showed me to cook and sew, she advised me to get an education and a good job and to always work hard to support myself. Mom I'm grateful for that, I love you deeply. Mom was proceeded in death by her great-grandson, baby Rudy; son in law, Rudy Dominguez. She is survived by her loving companion of 37 years Luis De La Rosa; only daughter, Maria Dominguez (Tony); granddaughters, Rona Dominguez (Coby), Raquel Dominguez (Carlos), Trudy Dominguez (Daniel); great grandchildren, Charlie, Mary Jane, Stephen, Aranez; brother, Amador Galvez ( Tia Lillca).

We would like to thank my friend Pat Lostaunau of 53 years for being there with us everyday with love, support, and cooking for us. Her mom, Helen Ybanez is mom's last surviving friend.
