March 29, 2017
Our beloved Mamá Esther left us on March 18, 2017. She joins her husband Juan, who preceded her in death in August 2016. She passed surrounded by her loving family. Mamá Esther was born November 28, 1936 in Zacatecas, Mexico. Family was always at the center of Mamá Esther’s universe. She liked nothing better than seeing her entire family gather to celebrate a holiday, or just for a weekend barbeque. Her other love was going shopping for the day with her daughters.
Mamá Esther leaves behind two sisters, Carmen and Lidia, her six children, Margot (Oscar), Juanita (Juan Ramon), Minerva (Luis), Patricia (Terry), Jaime (Yolanda), and Erica (Benito), 15 grandchildren, and 6 great-grandchildren.
She was loved by everyone who knew her, and will be greatly missed by all.
The family would like to thank Dr. Lin, Dr. Tushla, and all of the wonderful doctors, nurses, and staff at Community Memorial Hospital. Their fantastic caring attitude towards our entire family made our Mamá Esther’s last days as good as they could possibly be.
