Cecilia Campos

November 22, 1928 — March 11, 2020

Cecilia Campos, lovingly known as, Abuela to her grandchildren, passed away on March 11, 2020 in Whittier, California at the age of 91. She was born on November 22, 1928 in Villa Coronado located in the state of Chihuahua in Mexico. Cecilia was the 9th child out of fifteen siblings and she worked on their small family ranch from a young age by helping raise her younger brothers and sisters.

Cecilia later made the decision to work in El Paso, Texas and consequently moved to Missouri to work with one of her best friends. During her visits back to Chihuahua, she met Alfonso Campos and married him on January 6, 1960. They began their life together in East Los Angeles, California and welcomed two daughters.

As a mother, Cecilia made sure that her daughters had a Catholic upbringing and homemade Mexican meals in their stomachs. She made sure that her girls were in school every day and on time. Cecilia always tried to make ends meet by selling Tupperware, Avon, Shaklee, and finally obtaining a position as a Teachers Aide for the Montebello Unified School District.

Cecilia is survived by her two daughters, Myrna (Andy) Castillo, and Nancy (Jack) Carter; grandchildren: Danielle Alvarado, Harrison Alvarado, Diego Castillo, Maya Castillo; great grandchild: Savannah Rose Alvarado.

A service is scheduled for November 27, 2020 at White Emerson Mortuary.
