She was born May 20, 1931 in Taft, Texas to Jorge and Trinidad Medina. She was the seventh of nine children. She was a devoted mother with a wonderful sense of humor and great cook who loved unconditionally and supported her entire family. She was a fighter up to the very end and taught us to never give up. Everyone knew not to bother her while she watched her novelas, nor while scratching off her lottery tickets.
