Sara Mendoza Ramos

10/09/1927 – 6/03/2022

Sara Mendoza Ramos was born on Oct. 9, 1927 in Penjamo, Guanajuato, and passed away at 94 on June 3, 2022. The last surviving sibling of seven, Sara was raised by Jesus and Margarita Mendoza in her beloved hometown on La Hacienda de la Calle Guanajuato. She met her husband Manuel Soto Ramos in Guanajuato, and together they raised five children in Sara’s childhood home: Berta, Maria, Lilia, Juan, and Alma. Sara was widowed for 28 years and will now be laid to rest beside her husband at the Carpinteria Cemetery.

Sara left behind a family of five children, 15 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, more than 50 birds, a beautiful garden and an everlasting example of what it means to love God. She was a strong woman who endured many challenges throughout her life and remained resilient and steadfast in her faith in Jesus Christ. 

Sara lived a very active lifestyle and spent her days cooking, crocheting, sewing, singing, dancing and tending to her home and garden, all while playing a vital role in the upbringing of three generations. She was an amazing mother, a loving grandmother, and her family gives special thanks to Dr. David Zisman and Dr. Rachel Trautwein for the attentive care they provided her throughout her final years. 

Her family is proud of her legacy and grateful for the many gifts and memories she left behind. Sara will be missed and will be celebrated by the Ramos family for generations to come.

Madre, ahora está en los brazos de Dios pero siempre estarás en nuestros corazones.
