Margarita Ruvalcaba, age 66, passed away on June 4, 2019. She was born in Phoenix on January 10, 1953 to Margarito Covarrubio and Maria Blanco.
Margarita is survived by her mother Maria Covarrubio, her husband of 40 years, Alfredo Ruvalcaba, her children, Esteban Navarrette, Marcela Ruvalcaba, and David Michael Ruvalcaba, five grandchildren, Stephen, Xavier, Danielle, Sayla, and Samantha, two great grandsons, Freddie and Gabriel, as well as her siblings, Abel Covarrubio (Barbara), Mary Garcia, Janie Lopez (Ray), Sylvia Covarrubio, and Isaac Covarrubio. God took his child home and welcomed her gracefully with open arms and blessed her with a new body where no pain, sickness, or sadness lingers. She was a godly woman who spoke Jesus into everyone’s life she encountered. She was always there ready to pray and listen to you. She was the light, heart, and happiness of her family. Margarita spent her working years cleaning in the hospitals and her dear friend Mrs. Lang’s house. She was often watching Jimmy Swaggart, reading the bible, singing for Jesus, spending time with friends and family, and cooking for her family on Sunday breakfast. She took care of all her grandchildren and explored many theme parks with them. She was strong, beautiful, humourous, family oriented, God-driven, and remarkable woman. God gained the most beautiful and precious angel.
She was preceded in death by her father Margarito Covarrubio, and two sons, Freddie Ruvalcaba and Marcos Ruvalcaba.

Margie was a long -time- friend and neighbor of our Family, for over 30 years. She was such a pleasant and friendly person, She, Alfred and the Entire family were some of our best Neighbors on the block. She loved getting the
Quarterly Christian Daily Devotionals, "The Word For You Today", from me, which I have distributed, for manny, many years. I am going to miss My good neighbor, especially for her friendliness, kindness and for being such a good Christian inspiration,
and listening ear, when we had our talks. She will be missed greatly. However, I know You are at peace and in a far better place, now. Rest in Peace Margie
