In Loving Memory
February 25, 1947 - April 12, 2023
Aurora Pinedo, 76, of Alhambra, California, passed away on April 12th.
She was predeceased by her parents, Feliciano Gamboa and Rosa Pinedo; her sisters, Amparo Gamboa, Esperanza Gamboa, Guadalupe Perez, and her brothers, Guadalupe Gamboa and Serafin Gamboa.
She is survived by her husband Ramiro Pinedo; children, Moises Pinedo, Rosie Pinedo, Gloria Batungbacal, Jacinto Pinedo, and Angel Pinedo; ten grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
Aurora was born the youngest of eight children and grew up in the small country town of Villa Guerrero in Jalisco, Mexico. She married her husband Ramiro Pinedo in 1966 and moved to the United States in 1970. The two raised five children together in Alhambra.
She worked for many years as a nurse, beginning at Alderwood Nursing Home in San Gabriel and ending her more than thirty-year career at Garfield Medical Center and Heritage Manor in Monterey Park. She loved being a nurse because she enjoyed helping others. In addition to her long career in the medical field, she volunteered at the club Social de Villa Guerrero where she helped fundraise by organizing dances and food sales for her small hometown in Mexico.
Her faith in God was practiced with a commitment that was deeply rooted, and it ultimately created the foundation for her family. She prayed the rosary every night, attended Mass every Sunday, and participated in adoration every first Saturday of the month at St. Therese Catholic Church in Alhambra.
She will be remembered for her generosity and care for others as a nurse, volunteer, and mother. Her kindheartedness could be seen in every aspect of her life, and it will be remembered as her legacy.
