It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother Mary Isabel Mesa on November 22, 2012, however we rest in the knowledge that she is with The Lord, Family and Friends.

Mary was born on November 5, 1926, in San Juan De Los Lagos, Guadalajara Mexico. Mary came to the United States in 1934 as a young child.

While growing up in Oxnard she met Ruben. They fell in love, married on November 8, 1942, and had 70 wonderful years together.

Dear Mesa Family;

I am sorry for your loss. Mary was a great lady that I knew from the time I was 12 years old. I fondley remember the times that I spent at your house as a young teenager and having a great bowl of Mary's hot chili. My thoughts are with all of you in this hard time. You all were a big part of my life growing up.
