Juana Moreno Ortega Obituary
Juana passed away on December 12 in Chatsworth, CA. Jenny as she was known by family and friends was an 85-year resident of the South Bay. She was born on June 16, 1916 in Los Angeles. At age 3 the family relocated to Hermosa Beach. She was born to Domingo Moreno and Maria Bravo. She was one of 12 children in the family. The Moreno family was one of the pioneer families of Hermosa Beach and one of the founding families in the building of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Hermosa Beach. She is preceded in death by her parents, Domingo Moreno and Maria Bravo; brothers, Frank Moreno, Gonzalo Moreno, Esias Moreno, Vincent Moreno; Bonfacio Moreno; sisters, Petra Estrada; Anita Salazar; Inez Areyan; Irene Savedra; Dora Segoviano; husbands, Ralph Chavez and John Ortega; and grandsons, Steven Carrillo and Joe Lucero. She is survived by her sister, Porfidia (Pat) Banda of Torrance; daughters, Mary Ellen Carrillo of Simi, Linda Salazar of Simi, Alice Lucero of Torrance; son, Joey Chavez (Berta) of Simi; stepson, Mike Ortega (Kathy) of Harbor City and stepdaughter, Dolores Jimenez of Arcadia. She is also survived by 12 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; and 2 great-great-grandchildren; and many, many nephews and nieces. She will be remembered lovingly by family and friends for her kindness, laughter and sharp wit. She will also be remembered for her love of the Dodgers and Lakers. She will be sorely missed especially by the great-grandchildren who can only hear the stories related to them by their parents. She will always be remembered for her great cooking. There was never a time when visitors would not be treated to a warm and delicious meal when they visited her home. Especially missed will be her Christmas tamales and her famous pozole. For the last 40 years, she attended either St. Philomena Church in Carson or St. Margaret Mary Church in Lomita. Her wish was to have her final Mass at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Hermosa Beach. Her father Domingo helped build the first church and her family built the grotto for the new Parrish. Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, December 21 at 10:00 a.m. at Our Lady of Guadalupe, Hermosa Beach. Interment will follow at Pacific Crest Cemetery, Redondo Beach.
