Our mother was a butcher at Everybody's which was a grocery store here in Odessa for many years. Her second job was raising six children. If you were to ask any of her children to describe their mom these are some of the responses you would get; strong, resilient, sharp, tough, independent and protective especially of her family, never one to wait for someone to do a task for her. At 97 she was a big part of our lives and we will miss her dearly.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Gilbert N Arredondo, her beautiful daughter Virginia S. Arredondo and great grandson Kyle Pina.
