We have just been informed today that Vera Marquez passed away on April 17, 2020 in a nursing home in Riverside, CA. In addition we just heard that her son Manny also passed away in October 2017 and his ashes will be buried with her. Today would have been Vera’s birthday.
There will be a service on June 3, 2020 at Holy Sepulcher Cemetery in Orange, CA (details to follow, since there may be a limit to the number of people who can attend).
Vera was a Past CA LULAC State Director, VP of the Farwest and a member of the Women’s Commision. Her husband Manny Marquez and Vera also started the CA Educational Foundation in Orange County and gave for many years scholarships to students.
She set an amazing example as a leader in our community. She will be sorely missed.
