She was blessed with 14 grandchildren Ana, Johnathon, Joseph, Zachary, Sarah, Nina, Rachel, Lidia, Nico, Charles, Ryan Lily, Tristan, Sereniti and Stephen. She was so happy when she became a great grandmother. Great grandchildren, Madilyn, Jaxon and Merridtyh.

She was preceded in death by her husband Nicanor Valdez, her parents Pedro and Lucilla Castillo, her sister Carmen Alcocer and her brothers, Robert, Sylvestre and Pete Castillo.
Mom worked as a seamstress before she became a full-time mom to seven children. She always made sure we had breakfast, lunch and dinner ready for us and fresh homemade flour tortillas every day. She thrived at taking care of her family. She showed us the meaning of being a loving, caring, compassionate, and devoted child by how she took care of both her parents. Her legacy will live on in each of us.
Mamita, you will forever be missed.
