She retired from Del Monte Cannery and was a member of Teamsters Cannery Workers Union Local 857. She had been going to Manito’s senior program at Ethel Hart Senior Center for 21 years. Margarita has touched so many people's lives in so many ways it would take a lifetime to write it down. Margarita will be missed but never forgotten by the people she left behind. She will be warmly greeted by those who passed before her. We love you and will try to emulate your wisdom and kindness.
"Rest in Peace." Because this is a celebration of life, the family would prefer that clothing is not all black. Please "wear bright colors" to represent our mother who was full of life
