Esther Durán Muñoz Obituary
August 11,1923 - January 6,2019 Esther Durán Muñoz, loving and proud wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend died on Sunday, January 6, 2019 at the age of 95. During her last moments, as in her wonderful life, she demonstrated the same compassion, strength and grace that she exhibited in all of her endeavors. Born in Upland, CA on August 11, 1923, she was the 3rd of nine children born to Damian and Carmen Durán. Throughout her life she exhibited a thirst for learning and a love of art. She made modest meals into delectable feasts and added color to any room with her love of flowers. Through the years she was known for her intricately crocheted doilies and colorfully designed afghans. Her quick wit always left people chuckling and her sharp tongue was never misunderstood. For the last five years she honored her children by traveling to each of their homes for extended periods of time. Her curiosity and creative nature were surpassed only by the love that she shared with family. In recent years she learned the nuances of Facebook and kept up with family losses and celebrations on her iPad. She enjoyed learning recipes from Rachel Rae and soaked up current affairs by listening to the other Rachel"the one who speaks really fast and is very smart"Rachel Maddow. Esther is survived by her children and their spouses: Joe Muñoz (Laura Muñoz), Margarita Muñoz, David Muñoz (Victoria Waddle), Stella Muñoz-Proulx (Brad Proulx); her 10 grandchildren: Ryan Muñoz, Marcus Muñoz, Daniel Muñoz-Howard, Damian Muñoz, Estevan Muñoz-Howard, Matthew Muñoz, Jonathan Muñoz-Proulx, Patrick Muñoz, Nicole Muñoz-Proulx, Alejandro Muñoz; and 10 great grandchildren: Liam Muñoz, Evie Muñoz, Henden Muñoz, Eva Muñoz, Estela Muñoz, Aurelio Ishii Muñoz-Howard, Benito Ishii Muñoz-Howard, Amelia Muñoz, Quinlyn Muñoz, Ellowyn Muñoz; Three sisters: Carmen Flores, Rachel Canchola, Alice Pierce and numerous nieces and nephews. The family wishes to acknowledge the compassionate and professional care given to their mom at Kindred Hospital in Rancho Cucamonga.
