Emma Rachel Rodriguez-Magana (1951-2019)

Emma Rachel Rodriguez-Magana beloved wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and great aunt passed away on July 28th, 2019.
Emma was born on June 13th, 1951 to Jesus and Mary Rodriguez of Fillmore, Ca. The middle of three siblings, sisters Mary and Jennie.
Emma was born, raised and passed away in the same home in Fillmore, Ca. She met her future husband Alfredo C. Magana in Fillmore as well. They married on April 17, 1980. They were married for four years until his passing on January 21st, 1984.
She was a devoted wife, mother, friend and "Tia Emma" who was always involved in the lives of her two sons, two grand-daughters, nieces and nephews. As a mother/grandma/aunt/friend she was caring, loving, nurturing, loyal and was gifted with a great sense of humor. "She was the perfect example of a mother, aunt, grandmother and friend. A person you sought comfort in, during any crisis in your life."
Emma loved to share life experiences with her friends and family. She always had a story and countless memories to share that would end up in fits of laughter. She had many hobbies from reading her Reader's Digest, National Geographic, People's magazine and many other publications that came daily to her home. She also collected little trinkets and figurines which she would display all throughout her home.
Her passions were shopping, watching TV, washing clothes at the laundromat, cruising (which was really the long way home), non- stop cleaning (probably an addiction), cooking, listening to her music, her bling-bling (jewelry), her current vehicle at any time(which was always kept pristine, by the way) and most especially her two sons.
She loved and cared for all her nieces, nephews, and all who needed her whether it be making you a sandwich, cereal with milk or something cold/hot to drink, to giving you a ride to school or home. She took pride in giving to all those she loved.
Emma loved all unconditionally and reminded us the importance of living in the moment and to enjoy every minute you have with family and friends.
Emma is survived by her two sons Ernesto Magana and Patricio Magana and their loves Alicia and Olivia; two beautiful grand-daughters Delilah and Kayla; two sisters Mary D. and Jennie R.; many nieces and nephews and her faithful four legged friend Roxie who adored Emma.
