Our mother, Matilde O. Flores who was also known to everyone as “Mami” was born on September 25th, 1936 to Emerencia and Marcos Ovalle of Cerritos, San Luis Potosi, Mexico. She passed away on January 2nd, 2022. She was married to Eliodoro T. Flores, Jr for 36 years until God called him home on July 22nd, 1997. She is survived by her 8 children and raised 2 grandchildren.
She is lived on by her daughter Diana Montez Fernandez; her children Rudy, Michael, Gilbert and Eric, daughter Berta Montez, son Gilbert Montes and his wife Gracie; children Gilbert, Johnathan, Jennifer, Meghan, Matthew, Cristian and Jose, son Sergio Flores and partner Juana; his children Vanessa and Sergio, daughter Norma Rosales and her Fiancé Daniel; her children Crystal, Adam, Nicholas and Faith, son Jessie Flores; his daughter Elaine, son Michael Flores, son Roy Flores and his wife Elizabeth; their son Roy Jr. She is also survived by 20 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandchildren.
Our mom was a stay at home “mom” and what big shoes to wear. Staying at home as a housewife with 8 children and raising 2 grandchildren was a 10-man job, but she took care of all those needs.
In her last years she moved in with her son Roy and his wife Elizabeth and Roy Jr. She enjoyed watching Impractical Jokers, Ridiculousness, Diner’s Drive-In & Dives. She also enjoyed seeing all her family gather together and cut up.
She will be greatly missed by this big family she leaves behind. What a legacy she leaves. We love you and miss you so much that words cannot express.
