Born January 22, 1922, she was preceded in death by her parents, Jose & Maria Herrera, (brothers) Cruz, Thomas, Moses, Joseph and (sisters) Lupe and Pauline. She is survived by her daughters; Priscilla (Dennis) Leighton, Vivian (Mike) Bruno, her sons; Robert (Kay) Cipres, Patrick (Rene) Cipres; granddaughters Genine, Tara, Rosanna and Samantha; grandsons Daniel, Steven, Matthew; great-grandchildren Isabelle, Sydney and Gavin. Thank you for gathering with us today in sharing our Mother’s celebration of life. Her lifelong devotion and faith in God have been fulfilled in her in a reward of eternal life with our Heavenly Father. She was born on January 22nd, 1922 in Gibson, New Mexico and passed away on June 28th, 2019 at her home in Hawthorne, CA. Our mother & father raised their four children, Priscilla, Vivian, Robert and Patrick in that same Hawthorne home over a span of seventy-two years. She was a most devoted wife, loving sister, a very accomplished housewife, the best cook, a great teacher, a soothing comforter, ever charitable and always with a great sense of humor! Her life was filled with some sorrows but also many joyous, lifelong experiences. Great migrations with her family across the Western States, living through the Depression and World War II, marriage to our father, the birth and lives of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, worldwide travels, sense of adventure, sharing the family histories and most importantly her great faith in God. Her love of family and friends is our life’s inspirations and we will always cherish these loving moments in the days and years ahead of us. She was the most loving and perfect mother our Heavenly Father could have blessed us with. God Bless her and may God Bless us.

  1. Les doy mis condolencias a la familia Vicenta. En Juan 11:25 dice, “Jesus let’s dijo: to soy la resurreccion y la vida. El que ejerce fe en mi, aunque muera, llegara a vivir Esto nos dice que so ejercemos fe en Jesus aunque nos murimos, seramos resucitados por Jesus.
