Socorro D Castaneda

Nuestra Querida Madre, Abuela, Bis-Abuela, Hermana, Tia y Amiga.

Our loving Mother, Grand-mother, Great-Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, and friend. She loved as hard as she worked. She worked hard to raise and educate her children to live a better life filled with love, laughter and a true love for God, religion, and purpose. One of her most important words of advice to her children was "Just try to do better", She never knew a stranger, gave willingly and would go without to help anyone in need. A favorite saying was "If the Lord is willing" and lived by the Golden Rule. She was a special breed who only shared love and can never be found again if you looked for a thousand years. Socorro is definitely our generational blessings to the roots of her family tree that continue to grow and grow.

Gonzolez, Enrique Rodriquez, Linda Rodriquez and Norma Pickett of California, Mary Alice Rader of Iowa, and Anthony Madrid of Idaho.
