Sierra Vista-Olivia S. Escobar, 85, passed away peacefully Saturday, 30 May 2020. She was born 19 May 1935 in Cananea, Sonora, Mexico to Angel and Lina Salazar. She was raised in Cananea and then in Douglas where she met and married her husband Francisco A. Escobar in 1955. They lived in Los Angeles, CA and later moved to Sierra Vista where they raised their four children.
She is survived by her daughter Olivia (John), son Daniel (Ronda), daughter-in-law Pam (David); grandchildren, Mindy (Chris), Francisco, John (Candace), Cyrena (Joselo), Lina, Kalyn, Daniel, and many great grandchildren that brought her joy, smiles, and the reassurance that her family would continue. Chiquito and Sadie were her 4-legged loyal companions that were constantly by her side. She is also survived by many cousins, nieces, nephews, friends, and neighbors that loved her dearly.
Mom (“Nana”) loved selflessly and forgave tirelessly. She was the happiest when her home was full of friends and family eating and laughing. She loved a table covered with food, her beans on the stove, sneaking chocolate candies she wasn’t supposed to have and collecting camels.
She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, her husband Francisco, her sons, David and Frank. The loss of those that preceded her in death left her with an ever-aching heart and she is now free of that pain.
The family would like to thank the countless medical professionals that took such loving care of her during her final weeks.
A private family service will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your preferred charity.
Hatfield Funeral Home, Sierra Vista has been entrusted with the arrangements.
