Mary attended Santa Paula Union High School and Ventura College. She was a dedicated, hard worker and took pride in whatever capacity she was in. She was employed by numerous agencies including Mupu Citrus Packing House, California Department of Motor Vehicles, Youth Employment Service and the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department. Mary retired after 18 years of employment from the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office, where she served so graciously. Mary was extremely proud of her time at the DA’s office.

During her free time Mary enjoyed gardening, reading, shopping and cheering on her favorite two teams, the LA Lakers and LA Dodgers. She would always make sure she was home on time to watch her teams play. Mary loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren & great-grandchildren. She was funny, loved to make others laugh and the life of any social gathering.

Mary was a treasure. I met her when we began working at the DA's office in 1979. She was a joy to be around and a great addition to the office. Mary was cheerful and friendly with everyone, and oh, so talented! I remember when we would have occasion to dress for work, at Halloween, and Mary was always so original and amazing with her disguises! She was a dear friend and we kept in touch off and on over the many years since those days. I know Mary had health issues for the last several years so we would have phone visits until I lost touch with her yet again. I always knew she would be looked after because family was the biggest part of Mary's life, and she was just as important to her precious daughters. Wishing you many blessings and the continued love and devotion you share as a family.

I will miss your sense of humor and you sharing your memories of how you’d take turns with Aunt Henrietta carrying me every Sunday after mass to Grandma& Grandpas home. Rigo and I will always have our fond memories of you and Dads funny antics and the brotherly love you shared with one another and gratefulness for your care of my Dad after moms passing. Dad enjoyed your cooking and for you ( and Anita) going to breakfast with him and never making him feel alone.
I know you are with All our family in heaven loving on each other and celebrating your life until I see you again your memory will live on and I will keep a eye on Anita.
Thank you for Loving me Lorraine, Rigo Sanchez and my family.
