Patricia J Zamora
March 17, 1937 – November 28, 2019
Patricia J. Zamora, 82, of Kansas City, Missouri entered into eternal peace on Thursday, Nov. 28, 2019 at her home. Patricia was born in Grand Island, Nebraska on March 17, 1937 to Braulio and Mary (Picon) Barron. She was raised in Lexington, Nebraska along with her brothers and sisters.
Patricia was married to Rafael Zamora, Sr. and together raised 14 children. Both Patricia and Rafael were very active in the church, especially with starting the Novena and Las Mananitas to Our Lady of Guadalupe, one of their greatest passions and a tradition the family did for more than 60 years.
Patricia cannot be described in a few short words. She was a loving, kind, generous and caring woman. She was a loving and supportive partner, a leader of her family and wonderful friend, sister, but most of all the greatest Mom on earth. Her love was unconditional. She was always there for everyone and the community knew they could depend on her support. Patricia always had a beautiful smile, and her big brown eyes always sparkled, even when she was sick.
Patricia was an independent and strong woman, a homemaker and a member of the Sacred Heart-Our Lady of Guadalupe Church.
Ever so proud of ALL her children, she had the wisdom and foresight to see that they were able to take advantage of the opportunities available to them. She could take charge and make things happen when need be, yet allowed them to decide their paths in life. Mom was the driving force behind the success of all of us. She loved listening to music, especially Mexican music and was always ready for a good party and dance. She also looked forward to the Barron-Picon Family Reunion and the Zamora-Rodriquez Halloween Party. She loved reuniting with all of her sisters and brother along with other family members to reminisce, laugh, and most of all dance and have a great time.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her beloved husband, Rafael Zamora, Sr.; her devoted son, Timothy Zamora; her grandson, Michael Martinez; and siblings, Ramona Barron, Andrea Gonzalez, Ruby Ramirez, Florentino Barron, David Barron, and Braulio Barron, Jr.; her sisters-in-law, Carmen Zamora and Teresa Rodriguez; brothers-in-law, John Perez, Mike Rodriguez, Leo Gonzalez, Valentino Blea, and Thomas Ramirez; as well as many other relatives.
Patricia leaves her loving memories to be cherished by her children, Patrick, Marie, Tina (Romero), Jesus, Pedro (Helen), Sally (Felix), Lina (Rob), Rita (Jonatan Sr.), Juanita (Clark), Maria (Greg), Tino, Porfirio, Rafael Jr. (Jayne), Ray (Michelle), Yeni and all those she considered her children. She also leaves her sisters, Nellie, Toni (Charles), Jeannie, Mary Lou (Reyes), Susana (Jesse), and Veronica; 59 grandchildren; 61 great-grandchildren: 5 great-great-grandchildren; numerous nieces, nephews and extended family and many friends. Patricia, will be missed dearly by all that knew her but no more than her family and her faithful watch cat, Mindy. There is no doubt that God saved her a special place for her in the Kingdom of Heaven. Rest in Peace Mom/Grandma/Sister/Friend. We love you and will miss you dearly.

my heartfelt condolences to the Zamora family.
She is an extraordinary women who will forever live in the hearts of so many especially her children and grand children. Her memory will be kept alive for eternity through them. The obvious bond between her and her babies was so genuine . You could see the laughter and love in their eyes when she was around and the pain in their eyes when she was gone. My heart hurts for your loss but I’m sure a little piece of her will live within all of you forever .
Her natural way of being strong gracious & kind (but still didn’t take no mess ) is truly inspiring.
She will definitely be missed!
May her spirit live on ,her memory be kept alive and prayers that that there is peace in knowing you was and always will be loved by her. 🙏
