Anita Cortez

Anita Cortez’s radiant spirit is carried on by her children Joe Gomez, Robert Gomez, Maria Gomez and Lazaro Gomez, passed away on May 14, 2024, after a long battle with Lung Disease. Her final moments were spent peacefully surrounded by family and close friends. Known for her vivacious personality, her passion for dancing, and not to mention her love for cooking.
