Obituary

Victorina Castañeda Gomez of Aurora, IL passed peacefully away in her sleep on May 11, 2020 after a brief battle with the coronavirus. She was 95 years old. A native of Guerrero, Mexico, she lived her long life with her daughter, her son-in-law, and their four children. Although officially grandmother to eight, Victorina was everyone's Abuelita. She provided guidance, love, and support to all that knew her. She was a devout Catholic and taught us the power of prayer. Time passed swiftly spending an afternoon with her at the kitchen table as she prepped dinner and shared her stories about Tierra Colorada. She found joy in singing to her great-grand kids, playing Loteria and teasing her son-in-law. Doña Vicky had an ability to make you feel special and understood, regardless of your virtues and vices.

Victorina was preceded in death by her son, Ruben and her husband, Ruben Vargas, Sr.

She is survived by her daughter, Ruth (Roberto) Morales of Aurora, IL; her eight grandchildren;13 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

Visitation will be held at The Healy Chapel, 370 Division Dr., Sugar Grove, IL on Monday, May 18, 2020 from 9-11 a.m., respecting social distancing norms of 10 visitors at a time. Her funeral will be a private ceremony for close family members. She will be interred at Mount Olivet Cemetery, 278 E. Ashland Ave., Aurora, IL.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Feeding America.

Please light a candle in her memory as a symbol of her light and love.
