Jesusa Sarah Reyes died on Sunday, December 12, 2021, at her home in Watsonville. She was 94.
Some of Sarah’s passions included cooking, dancing, and working out. However, the most important thing in Sarah’s life was spending time with her family and loved ones. Despite of her own financial struggles, Sarah was very willing to help loved ones in whichever way she could, reminiscent of the poor widow in Luke 21:2-4.
She leaves five sons, three daughters and over sixty grandchildren and great grandchildren. She’s preceded in death by her sons Henry and Robert Florez as well as her life partner, Efrain Merino. She leaves a huge void in the hearts of her loved ones, and she will be missed.
