WATSONVILLE — Petra Hernandez died on Friday, February 8, 2013 after a long battle with a terminal illness. She was 79.
She was born January 10, 1934 in Apaseo El Alto, Mexico. She had a passion for gardening and cooking, such that she was often gifted flowering plants that would inevitably find their way into her garden and anyone visiting her home would always feel welcome by the aromas of her home cooked meals. Mrs. Hernandez was described by her children and grandchildren as warm, caring, non-selfish and unconditional in her love for everyone.
She was preceded in death by her fourth child, Lourdes Sanchez. She is survived by her husband, Vicente Hernandez of 63 years; and her children, Rodolfo, Juana, Rosa, Margaret, Vince, Martin, Maria, Lupe along with numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Services will be held at Ave Maria Memorial Chapel today from 5-7 p.m. followed by the Rosary at 7 p.m. There will be a Mass held on Friday at 11 a.m. at Assumption Church in Pajaro with the burial to follow at Pajaro Valley Memorial Park with a reception thereafter.
