Mama, born and raised in Seguin and San Antonio, was one of 13 children of Eduvigen Ramirez and Refugia Caballero. She married Esabel Moreno on July 31, 1943. In 1946 they moved to our Dad's hometown of West Des Moines, Iowa. In January 1950, they moved to California and settled in Orange Cove where they raised their family. While Mama made sure all her kids went to church and Catechism, Daddy made sure we were all educated. She was there when all of us made our first Communion and Confirmations. Mama kept busy after her kids grew up and moved away to the city. She continued planting flowers and sewing. She and Daddy loved driving to Reno and Vegas and they loved their dogs and cats. She also kept in touch with her family, making trips to San Antonio and was especially close to her sister Dominga, who lived in Los Angeles. Her husband passed away in 1997 and Mama moved to San Jose in 2001 so her daughters could take care of her. For five years, she was fortunate to spend some time during the day at a private Alzheimer's Activity Center. She spent the rest of her time doing things with Mary and Esther. With the help of staff at Kaiser Hospice and her physician, Dr. Joetta Mair, Mama died peacefully at home.
