Our Mama was strong, beautiful, tough and hard working. She raised five children as a single parent and ran her household the best she could. She raised her children to be the parents that they are today to their children. Loving, funny, kind and patient. We will never forget the lessons she taught us, and the unconditional love she gave to each of us. We know you are with us Mama, and listening. We will always keep your memories in our heart. We love you more than anything and will always miss you. Thank you for being the best mom always to us. We will keep that in our hearts and stay strong, as you have taught us. Fly with the angels Mama. GOD knows He now has an amazing angel in Heaven. Rest in paradise Mama, until we see you again.

A proud Great-Grandmother to Ethan and Emma Dutra, Anjelica and Eliot Viramontes, Aryana Gaxiola and Anthony Zaragosa. And an adored Great-Great Grandma to Isaac and Isiah Viramontes.
