It is with a heavy heart that the family of Patricia Madrid announce the passing of their beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother on February 3rd, 2023. She passed away peacefully in the comfort of her youngest daughters’ home surrounded by her loved ones.
Patricia was born in El Potrero (Cosala, Sinaloa) on December 14th, 1929 and was the second child of a total of nine siblings. She was raised on a ranch and held many responsibilities in helping her parents maintain the upkeep of their land and livestock. Later in her adult life, as a widowed single mother, she decided to take up a very life changing offer her cousin Julia had suggested. It was to move out of the only life they knew, and move to Mexicali with her and work towards a new life for her daughter Blanca and herself. They then saved up enough finances towards their main goal, which was to move to the U.S. and continue prospering in a new life.
Patricia and her cousin Julia then settled in a town in Los Angeles named Glassell Park, where Patricia raised her two daughters Blanca and Cynthia. She also made lasting friendships and many cherished memories with neighbors and people from all walks of life. She was known for her compassionate heart, hospitality, selflessness, and willingness to help those she loved and cared for dearly. She carried a spirit of nobility and the heart of a servant for God. It was through her faith in God that she persevered in tough times, and was resilient. She lived a long life filled with love, of laughter, and left a lasting impact on the lives closest to her.
She will be missed immensely by all family members and friends who became like family, but her memories will live on with everyone who loved her and knew her.
