Laurentina Esperanza Ayala

Laurentina Esperanza Ayala died August 21. She was 83.

Laurentina was born on Feb. 3, 1936 to Efren and Asuncion Morales in Estado, Mexico. Mrs. Ayala was a very hard- working lady. She worked at Green Giant Cannery for more than 20 years while raising her family. In her retired years, she loved playing loteria, going to casinos and cooking for her family.

She is survived by her brother, Julian Morales; six children, Herlinda Ayala, Catalina Ayala, Greg Ayala, Elena Leon, Tito Ayala and Reyna Ayala; as well as many grand and great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband Angel H. Ayala, her sister Margarita Morales and her brother Juan Morales.

She will be greatly missed, but always in our hearts.

There was a visitation at Mehl’s Colonial Chapel on Tuesday with a Rosary after. Her burial will take place in Mexico at a later date. All family and friends are welcome to attend the rosary.
