Her smile and spirit will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her. She loved nothing more than surrounding herself with family, spending endless hours hosting family events and gatherings at her home. Her family was what she was all about. She was also an avid gardener; she had a passion for plants. She will forever be remembered as a devoted, supportive and selfless mother. She was preceded in death by her husband Hilario Cantu and daughter Mary Susie Hinojosa in 2005 and her granddaughter Susana Hinojosa in 2007. She is survived by her children: Edna and Victor T. Aleman, Anilia Contreras; Olga and Arturo G. San Miguel; and Hilaria and Enrique C. Delgadillo. She is also survived by her grandchildren: Raquel Prude, Victor Aleman II, Carmen Guzman, Amanda Rose Contreras, Ruben Joel Contreras, Reyna Delgadillo, Veronica Delgadillo and Alex Delgadillo.
