Angela Nuñez

May 31, 1930 — January 19, 2024

Angela Nuñez, of York Valley, entered into eternal rest Friday, January 19, 2024 in Goodyear, surrounded by her family. She was 93.

Angela was born May 31, 1930 in Morenci, Arizona. She was one of eight children. She married William A. Nuñez, Sr. on December 25, 1948.

Lita, as many remember her, was a member of Holy Cross Parish, Holy Cross Altar & Rosary, Beneficio Propio, and the Red Hat Society. She worked as a cashier at Center Market, taught evening courses on Mexican cooking at Eastern Arizona College, and served on the Greenlee County EAC Advisory Board. Her greatest joy was being the cook at the Duncan Head Start where she worked for over 20 years.

Lita is survived by: her daughters, Melinda Schermerhorn of Goodyear, Elizabeth Diaz (Natalio) of Phoenix, and Elaine Padilla (Gilbert) of York Valley; 11 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren, 5 great-great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by: her husband, William; daughter, Carol; son, William A Nuñez, Jr; and her mother, Petra Lujan.

A mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, and friend. Love is the answer.
