Dora J Deanda was born in Odessa Tx to Lucia D Ortiz and Nolberto Jaso on April 20, 1951. She went to school at Odessa Tx. She graduated from Ector High School. She worked as a cook for Arbor Terrace Head Start for 12 years. She loved who she worked with and so loved the kids, she took pride in all she did. She was a very hard working, generous, patient, loving, always giving what she had to others. Mom’s favorite thing to do was to bake biscochios, she loved to make them for every occasion, and the family and friends loved it when she did. In her spare time she loved to read, sew and spend time with her children and grandchildren.
Her little sidekick Jordyn Castillo (my little Angel) was always with her going out of town, to the store or just at home.

Her Grandchildren Ricky Licon, Estephan Acosta, Jennifer Castillo, Michael Castillo, Mariah Castillo, Jordyn Castillo, Kassarah Garcia, Julian Garcia, Sidney Castillo Jr., Julian Luna, Dominic Luna, and Gabryella Garcia. Two Great-Grandchildren Zaelyn and Juliette and one on the way. Many nephews and nieces. Also to the only dog she ever liked and loved Whiskers.

Pallbearers will be Adorian (Manny) Alvarado, Estephan Acosta, Gilbert Estrella, Sidney Castillo Jr., Julian Luna, and Dominic Luna.
