Gonzalez, Luz Maria CHULA VISTA -- Luz Maria Gonzalez, age 62, passed away unexpectedly at Scripps Mercy Hospital in Chula Vista, California on Wednesday, July 17, 2013 following a heart attack. Luz was born in Tijuana, Mexico on June 14, 1951. As a young adult, she moved to Los Angeles, California for a short time and then moved to Chula Vista, California where she became a United States citizen. She married Enrique Gonzalez in 1978. She worked as a Nurse's Aide for several years before choosing to stay home to raise her sons starting in 1983. Luz had a big heart and was a dedicated wife and mother. She loved to be with and care for her children, and her grandchildren were a special light in her life. She had a close personal relationship with God and studied with Jehovah's Witnesses. She also enjoyed reading, writing and taking walks with her husband. Luz is survived by her husband, Enrique Gonzalez, her sons Enrique Gonzalez Jr. and Rogelio (Sarah) Gonzalez, her grandsons Niguel and Rafi, and many siblings and extended family members. We would like to thank the staff at Fresenius Medical Care for the many years of dedicated care you provided to Luz.
