While they never officially married, he was truly her husband and she will be forever remembered by her best friend of 35+ years. She would do anything for those she loved. She had a hard time telling anyone "no". She was happiest when she had her house full of family. She never had an empty plate. If you went to visit her, she fed you. If you showed up during a meal, she made sure you ate, too. If you needed something, she would try her best to get it for you or help you get what you needed. She loved simple things like going to the beach, going out to eat, receiving flowers and edible arrangements but mostly, she loved being with family. Family was everything to her. She was crazy, fun, silly, loving, and feisty. She is preceded in death by her mother, whom she cherished, Guadalupe Ramirez and her father, Raymundo Gonzalez.
