Pilar Mary Andrade Obituary
Oct. 12, 1933 - Feb. 1, 2018 Woodland Pilar Mary Andrade, 84, peacefully entered into eternal rest on Feb. 1, surrounded by her family at her residence. She was born in El Paso, TX on Oct. 12, 1933. As a young child, Pilar moved to Woodland and attended area schools, graduating from Woodland High School in 1952. In 1960 she became owner and operator of El Sombrero Foods, Inc., until her retirement in 1989. Pilar was an active member of the community, including, Business and Professional Women's Club, Soroptimist Club of Woodland, and a charter member of the comite Mexicano de Beneficencia auxiliary No. 2, the first Mexican-American organization to present Woodland High school students with scholarships. She was a member of the Economic Opportunity Commission when it was first organized. She served on the boards of River City Bank and Woodland Memorial Hospital. But her most satisfying community involvement was with the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Woodland, where she led many prayer groups and promoted the Faith through the recitation of the Rosary. Pilar was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Andrew Andrade; parents, Bruno and Luz Montoya; sister, Irene Montoya; brother, Andy Montoya. Pilar is survived by daughter, Sally Zamora; sons, Robert, Edward (Norma), Richard (Renee) Andrade; brother, Eligio (Carmen) Montoya; sister, Rosie Difuntorum; 16 grandchildren; 26 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.
