I have many, many fond memories of Chata when I was growing up. I often traveled from California to El Paso and I stayed with her and my brother-in-law at the time, Ruben and my sister Quinkie. Chata always treated me with love, kindness and respect. She traveled once or twice a year to California and stayed with my family and I. We considered her part of the family, and we loved her and her family. My condolences to Ruben, Patsy and the rest of Chata’s family. Chata will be in my heart forever.
