Mom grew up in Arvin and waited for Dad to return from the Army and they married in 1955. They moved to Bakersfield where they raised 4 children. Mom was a hard worker, she helped support her family along with her 10 siblings, Carmen, Lupe, Julia, Anna, Hilda, Lola, Joe, Frank, Rosie and Manuel. Mom's legacy is her Faith and Family. She was a Nina, Comadre, Tia and Friend to many. Throughout mom's life and illness, her faith never wavered. Mom never complained of her illnesses. She lived by the Serenity Prayer. We have received and learned much from her and will forever be grateful.
