Obituary

Laura Paniagua-Sigala passed away on June 1, 2022, at the age of 60, in her hometown of Watsonville. Through her 10-year battle with kidney cancer, she showed her courage with a smile on her face, never a complaint, and dancing the night away every chance she could. To some she became an idol, a hero, and to her children the strongest person to have ever lived.

Music was in her soul and there wasn’t anything that could keep Laura off the dance floor with a smile on her face. She also couldn’t resist jumping in any body of water to enjoy hours of swimming and was known as “The Mermaid.” Whether she wasn’t feeling well or even if she was in pain, Laura always made it out to cheer on her grandchildren in their many sports they played. She was known as “Nana Laura” to many of their teammates and coaches. Laura touched many lives through her kindness and big heart.

After graduating from Watsonville High School, Laura met her ex-husband and together they had three children. Her children were her life and she made sure they would never forget that.

Laura is predeceased by her mother, Annie Castaneda, father Rodrigo Paniagua, and brothers Tony and Albert Torres. Left to cherish her memory are her three children: Jose, Virginia, and Laurita, eight grandchildren, five sibling, two sisters-in-law, and many cousins, nieces, and nephews. She will truly be missed.

Viewing will be held from 5pm-7pm Sunday June 12, 2022, at Mehl’s Colonial Chapel located at 222 E. Lake Avenue, rosary will begin at 7pm. Funeral mass will be held at 10am Monday June 13, 2022, at Valley Catholic Church located at 2401 E. Lake Avenue. Burial is at 11am following mass at Valley Public Cemetery located at 2445 E. Lake Avenue, all in Watsonville.
