Josefina "Fina" Iturralde left this world to be with God on the same day she was born, signifying her rebirth into heaven. Born June 21, 1966, she passed on June 21, 2013 at the young age of 47. She is survived by her three beautiful sons, Richmond, Demitrio and Maximilliano. Also her mother, Viola; father, Armando; sisters, Luz, Silvia, Celia, Maria, Violeta and brothers, Armando, Miguel, Antonio and Juan. She leaves behind many nieces and nephews who loved her dearly. Fina was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer seven years ago. Fina's love for her children provided her the strength to fight the disease for far longer than normally possible. Fina touched so many lives through her kindness, compassion and love for all she met. She was recently chosen by Tu Nidito as one of five Truly Remarkable Moms of Tucson and was featured in the May issue of Tucson Lifestyle magazine. This world will never be the same without her. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Services will be held Saturday, June 29, 2013, 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. at MARTINEZ FUNERAL CHAPELS.
