She lived a full life as a wonderful mother, homemaker and worker in the hospitality sector. Until her health condition made it impossible, her interests included family, shopping, and puzzle books. She loved to cook, kept an immaculate house, was highly skilled at embroidery and enjoyed outings to casinos to help her "Golden Girls" celebrate their birthdays. She was often referred to as "Casper the Friendly Ghost" because she would strike up conversations with strangers. She had a mischievous side and loved telling jokes, some risque, and pulling pranks on people. She will be sorely missed and is survived by her daughter, Sandra (Brenda) Ramos of San Jose, her granddog, Harley and many, many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her mother, Maria B. Parraz; her father, Serapio Parraz; her sisters, Estella Olivas, Elvira Hernandez, Pauline Parraz, Trine Chavez and Geneva Parraz; her brothers, Frank, Alifonso, Efren, Gilberto, Santos, Adan and Pete Parraz.
