Berta Chavira Obituary
BERTA CHAVIRA went to be with the Lord on June 6, 2015. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends at her home in Norco, CA. Born in Santa Barbara, CA, Berta was a longtime resident of Wilmington, CA before moving to Norco, CA over 23 years ago; while residing in Wilmington Berta was very active with both church and community events. Before moving to Norco Berta retired from Sears and Roebuck, in Carson CA, after 20 years of employment. Always committed to providing mentoring support and guidance, especially to her grandchildren, Berta began volunteering at Norco Elementary School in the kindergarten classroom, where she spent the next twenty years assisting hundreds of young children and teachers who knew her as "Miss Nana". Berta is survived by her three loving children: Ramona (Mona) Vela of Norco, CA, Roberta (Robbie) and Ron Chavira both of Long Beach CA; son-in-law Joe Vela of Norco, CA; nine grandchildren, nineteen great-grandchildren and one great great-grandchild. Berta was preceded in death by her husband Ramon (Ray); son Richard; granddaughter Ann Marie Urias (Vela); and siblings: Tony Reyes, Sally Rivera, Ed Reyes, and Alfred (Keko) Reyes. Memorial services will begin at 10 a.m., Friday, June 12, 2015 at Saint Mel's Catholic Church, 4140 Corona Ave, Norco, CA followed by a reception in the adjacent church hall. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Miller Childrens Hospital Child Life or Long Beach Ronald McDonald House.
