Margarita G. Perez passed away on Sunday, November 8, 2020 at her home in Lodi after a lengthy illness resulting from a fall.  Margarita was born in Granjeno, TX on November 2, 1937 to Francisca Guzman and Napoleon Garza.
Margarita left school at a young age to help her family by working different crops in different states including Idaho where she met and fell in love with her future husband, Antonio C. Perez. 
After marrying Antonio, in their home state of Texas, they moved to California where Margarita worked most of her life as a laborer, working part-time & seasonal jobs in the fields and for numerous companies including Arbor Place, Dole Fresh Fruits & retiring from TriValley Growers.
Margarita enjoyed visits from her grandchildren & great-grandchildren "en ratitos". Her hobbies were working on word find puzzles, lotto scratchers and trips to Jackson Rancheria but Margarita most especially lived for the outings with her nephew Daniel Garza, Jr (Valerie).

Mom, even though we are so sad, we know that you are at peace and happy to be back with Dad & Frankie. You are no longer sad & suffering - for this we have to accept, no matter how hard it is! I love you Mom...
