To my CA Rivera cousins, my most heartfelt condolences on the loss of my dear Tia Lucy. My memories of Tio Chema and Tia Lucy are still alive in my memory and my heart, and there are so many. May you all find peace in knowing she's united with God and her loved ones who have gone before her. I still remember all of you.
Hugs,
Irene Rivera

Nonie was my very first baby sitter after I was born so I am told :) I have vague memories but the ones I do I will treasure forever. I remember going to the Glendale house to see my grandparents growing up and while playing outside either running, skateboarding or doing who knows what, I remember I loved going up the street to look for Nonie to say hello. I think it was a ritual when I was really young. I don't think I saw her much in my teens but when I did, it was always great to see her.
Time went on and about 15 or so years ago we were invited to her Bday party at Steve's house. I loved seeing everyone, and I was able to talk to her and introduce her to my little girl at the time. I wish I knew where that picture was.
Distance kept us apart but the memories and special feelings I had for Nonie will never be forgotten.

Well, Here I'm, the oldest Son, on the night before, Mom is laid to rest, next to Dad.. With my Precious Memory's and the Wonderful life they/we maded together.

Nonnie, brought into this World, 8 Son's; Jose(jr), Justo, Victor, Dean, Steve, Henry, David and James.

I felt, that nonnie was proud and strong , about her time here with her family and friends and I know would be missed.

I was also content, in knowing that me and her, had spent some time, in conversation of the past, present and future.
And, I came from that time, feeling stronger, about life.

I will miss her, but, know, in my heart, that she will be in a heavenly place.
Nonnie....Rest in Peace, Forever and Ever

I have been truly blessed to have met Nonie and to have spent some time with her when me and
Victor visited in 2011 and to be a part of the Rivera family. An amazing woman bringing up seven boys who are a testament to the loving, wonderful person that she was. Thank you for welcoming me into the family.
Victor has so many wonderful memories of Nonie but I will always treasure our time together at
Justo’s home. Nonie was one of the warmest and most caring person I had the pleasure of knowing. Thank you Nonie for sharing so much of yourself that I only wish we could have visited more often
You have lived a good life. You have fought the good fight.
God has called you home to rest now Nonie.
A beautiful and gentle soul who will remain in our hearts forever.
Aere, Aere, Aere ra Nonie. (Farewell Nonie)
Kia Orana e Kia Manuia
With Love Victor and Eleanor

In 1969 my dad moved us to Linden Ave/Glendale where I quickly became the "Other Rivera son". Instantly I had two best friends in one family, Steve ("Rivets") and Henry. Dean was my older "Perfect" and pesky brother and Junior my older "Cool" brother! It was Nonnie that became my second mother and I am not ashamed to say, I was the recipient of some of the best food in Southern California! God bless you Nonnie, you were a rare bird indeed. The kindest, gentlest and most selfless person that I have ever met in my entire life. RIP sweet Nonnie. I am still not over losing my beloved Rivets...ugh. Your other boy, Rey
