PETRA GONZALES 1/2/1930 - 10/1/2013 Petra Gonazles went home to be with the Lord peacefully surrounded by her family that love her. It is with much love that we will be celebrating her life on Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013 at Crossroads Assembly, 501 Ave. A at 2 p.m. Pastor Charles Mattix will be officiating. Petra enjoyed spending time with family and friends, taking long walks and going to Lola's Cafe for coffee. She loved dancing and listening to Mexican music. Petra knew no strangers and everyone was a friend to her. She had such a generous heart, sharing all that she had, often times her last dollar. She is preceded in death by her father, Jaun Saldana; her mother, Carlota Flores; stepfather, Martin Flores; son, Chucky Gonzales; grandson, Antonio Acosta. She leaves behind her children, Maria Arroyo and Priscilla Ulibarri of Barstow, Tony, Bonnie, Tomas, Fernando all of San Diego; her siblings, Domingo Curevo, Lupe Rodriguez, and Angie Beccera and her husband, Richard; 14 grandchildren, and 22 great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, cousins. We will miss her dearly.
