Irene Villalpando Sauceda, Mom, went to be with our Lord and Savior on Friday, October 1st, 2021.

Our Mother is a woman like no other. She was a wonderful devoted wife to our Father, Froilan Sauceda. She was such a wonderful loving Mom to us. She loved Jesus with her whole heart and loved to talk about Him and His goodness. She gave us life, nurtured us, taught us, dressed us, fought for us, held us, shouted at us, prayed for us, kissed us but most importantly loved us unconditionally. There are not enough words to describe just how important our Mother was to us, and what a powerful influence she continues to be. She loved being a Grandmother to her grandchildren and Great Grand Mama to her great grandchildren. They brought her joy – and, oh how she loved to shower them with kisses and love! Family was everything to her! She loved everyone! Each time you saw or talked to her, she left a little bit of Jesus, a hug and an I love you! She is survived by her daughters: Diana M. Collazo and Rachael Marchetta Vasquez; son: Adam Sauceda; sister: Sara Tovar Villalpando; brothers: Pete Villalpando, Abel Villalpando and Paul Villalpando; grandchildren: 9; great grandchildren: 7; and with other family members and friends.

Tell her I love her and miss her, And when she turns to smile, Place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for awhile. Because remembering her is easy, I do it every day, But there’s an ache within my heart That will never go away. Please visit losangelesfh.com to offer condolences.
