Aurora Menchaca

Camarillo, CA

Mrs. Aurora Menchaca passed away peacefully on January 1, 2018. She was born in Saltillo, Coahuila on September 12, 1919 and lived in San Antonio, Texas from the age of 2 until she moved to California in 1963. She was married to our dad, Johnnie Menchaca for 71 years and is survived by him and daughters, Alice and Olivia; sons, Johnnie Jr. (wife Sally), Manuel (wife Josefina), Isaac, and Dr. Raymond Menchaca (wife Grace), stepsons John Menchaca (Gwen) and Leroy Menchaca (Alice). She is also survived by nine grandchildren, Johnnie III, Frank, Tony, Manuel II, David, Paul, Vanessa, Raymond II, and Dianna; and ten great-grandchildren, Melissa, Johnnie IV, Macy, Matthew, Michael, Lily, Sabrina, Sophia, Isabella Menchaca and Andy Nunez.

Our mother's hard work, intelligence, nurturing and love helped to shape us to become who we are today. This loving home environment that she created was the best classroom for her children. We knew that she was proud of us, but we were very proud of her compassion, generosity and unselfishness. She loved her memories of working in her father's grocery store in San Antonio during the forties; after all, that's where she met our dad.

Like most moms, she never had a day off because we always lived in her heart and mind. Mom, thank you for all the goodness in our lives. We owe it all to you and our wonderful dad. Thank you, God, for giving us the greatest gift - our Mom.

Mom was predeceased by her parents, Manuel and Apolinar Martinez; seven siblings, and grandsons, Esteban and Isaac Nunez.
