Obituary

Maria Gregoria Estrada, 75, passed away on December 31, 2019 with her grandson by her side. 
She is survived by her 8 children, 17 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. 
She was known as Maria, Mom, Grandma and Memma. 
She was born in Monterrery, Mexico in 1944. She immigrated to the United States in the early 1970's with her husband Rafael De La Paz and their five children and settled into a small community in Chicago, Illinois. She remarried in 1985 to Guadalupe Estrada of Jalisco, Mexico. 
Over the years she built many friendships with people from all walks of life and was very welcoming.
She was a firm believer of the Christian faith, educated herself in pastoral studies and not only taught many how to pray to God but wished for many to be saved so that they may have everlasting life. 

She prayed for other people, whether family, neighbors, friends or familial friends. 
She had a kind heart, was very generous and always forgiving. She will be missed by all of those who loved and cared for her. 
Though her family and friends will miss her dearly here on Earth, she has joined her loved ones in Heaven, but most of all she will be with her biggest love, the Lord Jesus Christ. 


Maria Gregoria Estrada, de 75 años, falleció el 31 de diciembre de 2019 con su nieto a su lado. Le sobreviven sus 8 hijos, 17 nietos y 2 bisnietos. Ella era conocida como María, Mamá, Abuela y Memma. 
Nació en Monterrey, México, en 1944. Emigró a los Estados Unidos a principios de la década de 1970 con su esposo Rafael De La Paz y sus cinco hijos y se instaló en una pequeña comunidad en Chicago, Illinois. Se volvió a casar en 1985 con Guadalupe Estrada de Jalisco, México. 
Con los años, entabló muchas amistades con personas de todos los ámbitos de la vida y fue muy acogedora. Ella creía firmemente en la fe cristiana, se educó en estudios pastorales y no solo enseñó a muchos cómo orar a Dios, sino que deseaba que muchos se salvaran para que tuvieran una vida eterna. 
Ella oró por otras personas, ya sean familiares, vecinos, amigos o amigos de la familia. Ella tenía un corazón amable, era muy generosa y siempre indulgente. Todos los que la amaron y la cuidaron la extrañarán. 
Aunque su familia y amigos la extrañarán mucho aquí en la Tierra, se ha unido a sus seres queridos en el Cielo, pero sobre todo estará con su mayor amor, el Señor Jesucristo.
