Emilie S. Alarcon lived a full life and passed away on October 7, 2021. Emilie was born on July 25, 1925 in the Imperial Valley. Her parents, Fidel and Virginia Gomez, both immigrated to the U.S. and settled in the Imperial Valley around 1900.

Emilie grew up on the Gomez family dairy in Brawley with her six sisters. She graduated from Brawley Union High School and Imperial Valley College. Before finishing her degree she married Henry Alarcon in 1948 and the pair shared 70 years together.

Emilie is survived by her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Henry Alarcon.

The family is forever grateful to the staff and administrators of Heart and Hand in El Centro for creating such a loving and caring home for our beloved Emilie.

Emilie was truly an outstanding member of her community, and at the very heart of her loving family. She will forever be remembered and dearly loved.

My condolences go out to the Alarcon Family. I met Emily through work in l976. Our friendship has continued through the years. Emily has my family hooked on Christmas ornaments and we are still collecting the Hallmark Ornaments. Emily was willing to give up her after school hour to teach Wesley and his friends Spanish for two years. Emily was truly dedicated to the teaching profession.
