It is with deep sorrow that we announce on February 22, 2023, our beloved Emma Padilla, 89. peacefully passed away at Good Sam Samaritan after a lengthy illness.
She was predeceased by her son, Stephen and her husband Tiburcio (aka Tibo/Toby), her parents Emilio and Maria Jojola, her siblings, Selfa Lucero, Josie Chavez, Emilio Jojola, Jr and Robert Jojola (Sonny).
Emma is survived by her granddaughter Angelica Padilla, and by her sisters Viviana Anaya and Rosemary Lopez, and by her many nieces and nephews.
Emma was a woman who faithfully loved Our Lord and who followed the Catholic Faith. She had the capacity to care deeply for others, not out of obligation, but because of her kind and loving heart.
