Angela M. Gallegos

Angela Gallegos was  gifted with a heart of gold. Her compassion for others was all done with a warm heart and loving smile. A woman who dedicated her life to her family. A wife of 62 years never missed a beat of taking care of her husband Manuel “Cholo” as she called him. Dedicated to her large family she always welcomed and opened her home to all.

Being an excellent cook her infamous deep fried chicken tacos on white tortillas with her chicken rice soup giving the true happiness to many, filling  their tummies with love, her recipes carried on through many friends and family.  Not only a great cook she kept her home immaculate clean, shiny and tidy.

Her image of perfect beauty inside and out. Always looking like 1 million bucks. Flawless make up, hair, keeping fashionable with different looks. In her earlier years loving country western, jeans and her red cowboy boots, big belt buckles and turquoise she wowed the crowd. Also in those years she love dancing, going out with her husband and friends tearing up the dance floor.

There was no doubt upon her Entering a room her smile and her beautiful personality touched everyone’s heart.  You didn’t get away without a hug or two and most of all ,” I LOVE YOU MORE “   Her magic  words.

Angela’s hobbies  of collecting Native American artifacts, Angels and her green thumb for house plants also demonstrated her unique and exquisite taste.

More recently you would find her passing her time sitting in her recliner with her baby ( Rosie) watching the news @noon, 5:00 & 10:00  each time a different channel, also,  Dr. Phil,  Ellen and  Jimmy Fallon,  of course eating her favorite snacks. Loads of sugar!

Her most recent friend was “Alexa” listening to her Mexican music. Some days walking in the house  thinking you were in the nite club. Music or TV blaring…..

Most of all she loved calling her family chit chatting, Wednesdays were IHOP free cherry pie  And the dollar store. Thanks to her friend Dorothy!

You were the Favorite!

We love you more
