Delia was a wonderful cook, her skills for making tamales were simply exceptional.
It took us years to master her strict rules too!
She loved to bake pies, and cakes. Being a gardener was her solitude, close to Mother Nature. Dancing was a lifestyle she loved, she would dance in the Los Angeles ballrooms and she was quite a social butterfly.
Her proudest moments were raising her three older sons, teaching them everything they wanted to learn.
She worked as an advanced seamstress, a power sewer. She was extremely fast at making umbrellas and patio seat cushions.
She taught her daughters to sew also. She made all of Loretta’s barbie dolls clothes, Loretta loved this about her.
She worked at Aerojet, she soldered on the Apollo Command Service Module in 1962. This made her very proud.
She purchased five homes throughout her life.
Her property in Fallbrook was a dream for her. She had a garden, fruit trees, chickens, on a half acre. She was in paradise.
She worked at St. Peters, Catholic Church as an after school daycare provider.
All the elementary school children, (including her grand-daughter Latia), just loved being with her after school.
Everyone called her, “grandma”.
Later in life, she enjoyed her many friends she made at St. Martha’s Catholic Church, in Murrieta. She had a special bond with all of them. She loved to host parties at her house for them.She also played cards once a week with the ladies until the pandemic hit. She was 95 years old and still loving her social gatherings.
Mom always said that being social is important in your life. She lived life to the fullest. We will all miss our mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, and great aunt, for she was quite a lady, she had class and wasn’t afraid to speak her mind.
Dress up and look nice she would say.
Yes, she had CLASS and we will miss her every Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Until we meet again one day,
Rest in eternal peace,
We will always love you mom.
