Maria Antonia González, affectionately known as "Toñita" enjoyed life and telling stories about growing up in Mexico with very strict parents, which she loved and spoke very highly of. That molded her to become the woman who would raise eight kids, four boys and four girls with the feat of God and a heart of gold. She loved her children and passed her love for music to them. A fun time for Toñita was to be surrounded by her children and grandkids during a family cookout with music blaring in the background. Her story is long and she will be missed by those she loved and those who loved her. May She Rest in Eternal Glory.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Perfecto Gonzalez; a son, Leonel; daughter, Nora; three beautiful grandchildren, Edward Gonzalez, Nicole Castillo, and Clarissa Espericueta; and her sister, Lupita Lopez.
