OBITUARY

Emma Rachel Rodriguez-Magaña

13 June , 195128 July , 2019

Emma Rachel Rodriguez-Magana beloved wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and great aunt passed away on July 28th, 2019. Emma was born on June 13th, 1951 to Jesus and Mary Rodriguez of Fillmore, Ca. The middle of three siblings, sisters Mary and Jennie. Emma was born, raised and passed away in the same home in Fillmore, Ca. She met her future husband Alfredo C. Magana in Fillmore as well. They married on April 17, 1980. They were married for four years until his passing on January 21st, 1984. She was a devoted wife, mother, friend and "Tia Emma" who was always involved in the lives of her two sons, two grand-daughters, nieces and nephews. As a mother/grandma/aunt/friend she was caring, loving, nurturing, loyal and was gifted with a great sense of humor. "She was the perfect example of a mother, aunt, grandmother and friend. A person you sought comfort in, during any crisis in your life." Emma loved to share life experiences with her friends and family. She always had a story and countless memories to share that would end up in fits of laughter. She had many hobbies from reading her Reader's Digest, National Geographic, People's magazine and many other publications that came daily to her home. She also collected little trinkets and figurines which she would display all throughout her home. Her passions were shopping, watching TV, washing clothes at the laundromat, cruising (which was really the long way home), non- stop cleaning (probably an addiction), cooking, listening to her music, her bling-bling (jewelry), her current vehicle at any time(which was always kept pristine, by the way) and most especially her two sons. She loved and cared for all her nieces, nephews, and all who needed her whether it be making you a sandwich, cereal with milk or something cold/hot to drink, to giving you a ride to school or home. She took pride in giving to all those she loved. Emma loved all unconditionally and reminded us the importance of living in the moment and to enjoy every minute you have with family and friends. Emma is survived by her two sons Ernesto Magana and Patricio Magana and their loves Alicia and Olivia; two beautiful grand-daughters Delilah and Kayla; two sisters Mary D. and Jennie R.; many nieces and nephews and her faithful four legged friend Roxie who adored Emma.

Where do I begin with our tia Emma, who was not just a tia; she was our second mom. She was the one that looked after all of us, and never judged us. Tia you showed me not to be afraid, but to look out for others. I remember how you would love to prank us as children, you would send us into the store just to go park the car somewhere else. Oh how you would be laughing as you watched us going in circles looking for you. What I’d give to hear your laughter or to see your smile just once more tia. There’s so many precious memories we all shared with you tia.I know God called your name and you heard him, so you went tia. It is going be different without you tia. Things will not be the same like Thanksgiving, (your famous stuffing ) potato salad and rice, you just passing through my front end at work and stopping to give me a hug and a kiss goodbye on the cheek. It’s going be hard tia, and the only thing I do know is the rest of my life I’m going miss you and think about you. Don’t worry tia, I’ll look out for Pat. Luv you tia, your twin Ruby. I’ll be playing those oldies till we meet again tia.

Because through the drama
I can always depend on my mama
And when it seems that I'm hopeless
You say the words that can get me back in focus
When I was sick as a little kid
To keep me happy there's no limit to the things you did
And all my childhood memories
Are full of all the sweet things you did for me
And even though I act crazy
I gotta thank the Lord that you made me
There are no words that can express how I feel
You never kept a secret, always stayed real
And I appreciate, how you raised me
And all the extra love that you gave me
I wish I could take the pain away
If you can make it through the night there's a brighter day
Everything will be alright if ya hold on
It's a struggle everyday, gotta roll on
And there's no way I can pay you back
But my plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated

Dear mama
Don't you know I love you?
Dear mama
Place no one above you.........I love you, Mom.Your son Ernie,always

I am heartbroken by the passing of my Cousin Emma Rodriguez Magana. When the call came in on my phone, I was happy thinking it was you calling.
That happiness immediately turned to sadness, when I was informed by your Son Pat, of your untimely passing.
You were loved by many Emma. All the comments here only indicate love from friends and family. I will always treasure the many times I brought my mother over to see you. Your beautiful, loving and fun to be around personality will forever remain in my heart.
There are no words to express the sadness that I feel.
Thank you for the times we shared as family.
Memories of you will always remain in my heart Prima.

Love always,
Ernest Richard Gutierrez Jr.

To my sister Emma, here I sit in my room trying to write my feelings for you even though we never wrote to each other we would call and I would come over. I will miss those calls Emma. I know you always had my back Emma. You took care of all my children Emma, and I’m thankful for that.I cry everyday for you Emma, I’m lost Emma without you we had some good times and sad times when we lost our parents. You stood by my side and I thank you Emma, I will always cherish our memories and secrets . Until we meet again, wait for me ❤️ Love your baby sister Mary ❤️
