She was born on February 9th 1945 to Juan and Manuela Mendoza in Roswell New Mexico. She was an amazing and wonderful person who loved her family very much and instilled in her children strong values that have served them well and not only her children but also her children's friends who know her as mom as well. She loved to help others and enjoyed her career for many years as a nutritionist and WIC clerk who helped low-income families get needed groceries.
