Lucila “Lucy” Acosta, 87, of Evans passed away at her home on September 10, 2020. Lucila was born December 27, 1932 to Ezequiel Corralez and Petra Ramirez.
Lucy moved to the Greeley area in 1968 where she raised her children on her own. She was very independent and never wanted to be a burden to anyone. Raising her children and making sure that they were well educated was her top priority. She was strict but loving, and she taught them to work hard. She went above and beyond for them.
Besides raising her children, she also loved flowers and enjoyed being in her garden.
Lucy is survived by her sons, Toby (Josie) Acosta, and Harvey Acosta; daughter, Elida (Daniel) Alvarado; 3 brothers; 2 sisters; grandson Danny Jr. and many more grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; one brother; two sisters; son, Manuel; and infant son, Jose Alfonso.
