Juanita Santos Cruz
December 27, 1960 – January 25, 2021
young and beautiful single Mother to 3 bright children. Juanita was a devout member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a supportive and loving sister, a “Mom/Auntie” to her nieces and nephews, one of the best friends you could ever have and one of the strongest little women that walked this Earth. From losing her Father at a young age, immigrating to the United States, raising 3 kids on her own, to becoming a very successful Silicon Valley professional all the while keeping her immediate and extended family of over 50 people always connected.
Our mother was not only the baby of her family, but the glue that kept us together.
She enjoyed coastal visits and writing in her journals by the beach. She collected dolphins and loved the holidays and seasonal everything! She loved being a Mom and gave back to her community in so many ways! Our mom was a faithful, loving, thoughtful and very supportive being. She never wasted a moment to let someone know that she cared for them.
