Ernestina Maria Hermosillo-Davis, also known as "Ernie," and "Tina," a life-long resident of the South Bay, passed away on Monday, July 1, 2013 in Torrance. Born in Gardena, CA, Ernestina was 54 when she died.
Ernestina is survived by her father, Mauricio Hermosillo and daughters, Patricia Padilla , Martha Costa and Michelle Padilla. She is also survived by "her boys", whom she called her reason for fighting, Joshua Hermosillo and Santino Calise as well as her Brothers and Sisters, Lupe, Jose, Cisco, Christina, Mauricio Jr., Richard and Yolanda. She was preceded in death by her mother, Isabel Hermosillo; and her husband of 13 years, David Davis.
She was an amazing mother, loving sister, supporting aunt, passionate business woman, and the best friend you could ever hope to have. Her lifelong pursuit to evolve spiritually and unquenchable thirst for knowledge have left a permanent impression in our hearts. We will miss her sunshine, her laugh, long talks, silly dance moves and most of all, her endless supply of wisdom, compassion and kindness.
The Memorial Service will be held at the Rice Lighthouse Room at Rice Mortuary in Torrance on Saturday July 6, 2013 at 2pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to support her youngest daughter, Michelle Padilla's college education.
