Lucrecia “Yaya” Zenaida Vallin of Glendora, California passed away on Sunday, December 2, 2018 surrounded by family in her home. She was 81 years old. Lucrecia was born the third child of Margarita and Wulfrano Ugalde in El Paso, Texas. She grew up in a busy home with four sisters and two brothers in El Paso, Texas. Family caring for family was important in the Ugalde home, so she spent a great amount of time with her Aunt Tila and cousin Mary caring for her younger siblings. She liked to talk about her school days and her time with her sisters and brothers. She married Ildeliso Vallin 49 years ago and cared for her five children in their home in Los Angeles, California. Her priorities were caring for her children and making sure that they kept up with all schoolwork. She enjoyed sewing, baking, walking with friends, visiting family and attending mass. . Lucrecia will be fondly remembered by her husband, Ildeliso Vallin, her five children (Joseph, Francisco, Florencia, Margarita, and Gabriel), their partners (Christina, Mindy, Gabriel, Jeremy and Anna), her eight grandchildren (Elise, Natalia, Isabella, Joseph, Patricia, Katalina, Kassandra, and Mateo), surviving sisters (Esther Copeland, Angelina Colunga, and Leonor Nunez) and brother (Juan Ugalde), and other family and friends.

After all the tears have been shed, after all the
pain and remorse and regret-
What's left?
Scant smells, smells of musk and perfume and
grandma, sister, aunt, friend, wife and mother -
Mother to All.
Memories of laughs, laughs filled with gasping
breaths and robust smiles, grins of love and hope and care and joy. Boundless
joy, endless joy. Joy that gives and never takes,
joy shown by my, your, our -
Mother to All.
Shopping trips punctuated with a fast-paced walk; wisps of corn tortillas and
glints of sunlight reflecting off lollipops.
Thoughts and recollections swirl together up into the air and become one
big, beautiful, bountiful remembrance;
brimming with bits of spirit and otherworldly magic. And we will feel her.
Feel her love, feel her love her embrace, her vitality. Our cherished soul -
our Mother to All.
