Vera R. Alvarado, 87, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away on July 8, 2013, surrounded by her family.
Vera was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph R. Alvarado, her eldest son, David Joseph Alvarado, her parents Guadalupe and Jesus Robles Contreras, sisters Mary Velasquez, Charlotte Lira, Della Ornelas, Carmen Avina and Artemisa Vizcarra, brothers Bill, Eddie and Jess Contreras. Vera was a homemaker, born July 30, 1925, in Madera, CA. She moved with her family to Merced in her early teens where she attended local schools here. She loved to take trips to her favorite casinos, Table Mountain and Chukchansi, to try her luck. Some of her most memorable trips were on the party buses to Reno with Dad. She loved to shop and spend all the holidays surrounded by her family and friends in her beautiful home that her husband built for her where she was cared for up until her passing.
Vera is survived by her children, Cynthia (James) Burkhart, JoElaine (Richard) Wright, Richard (Monica) Alvarado, Janette (Margaret) Alvarado, grandchildren Christina Santos, Nicole Salas, Richard Joseph Alvarado Jr., Christopher Alvarado, Autumn (Ronnie) Gardia, April Wright, Monique (Brian) Lewis and great-grandchildren Alyssa Marie Salas, Analeesia Salas, Serenity Saucedo, Faith Gardia, Aaron Joseph Franco, Judah Gardia, Chase Lewis and Jacob Joseph Quinonez.
As the youngest and last to pass of all her siblings, Vera is also survived by a great deal of nephews and nieces in Merced County and throughout California.
The family would like to thank Emanuel Hospital in Turlock, her doctors, Dr. Nicolas De La Pena, Dr. James Huish and a very special thank you to her Granddaughter, Nicole Salas for all of her loving care she gave her Grandmother up until her passing.
