Juanita De Leon

Born in El Chicural, Durango, Mexico.
Our mother was a woman ahead of her time, hardworking, strong, independent, very dedicated to her family, and loyal to her friends. She was a loving mother to her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren.
She was an amazing cook, a great seamstress, very organized, and she loved to keep her home immaculate. There was hardly anything she could not do.
She was preceded in death by her husband, daughter, parents, brothers, and two grandchildren.
