She is survived by her daughter Rose Howard & son-in-law, Ted Howard; son, Daniel Magana. She also left behind grandchildren & a great grandson.

Mom, our “Lady of the Lake” will be greatly missed.

Remember me when flowers bloom early in the spring.

Remember me on sunny days in the fun that summer brings

Remember me in the fall as you walk through leaves of gold

And remember me in the wintertime in the stories that are told

But most of all remember each day, right from the start

I will be forever near for I live within your heart
