I have so many beautiful memories of my Tia Chepa. I loved visiting her house as a kid. I admired how fun and witty she was. Despite our distance, I always felt so much love from her. I wish I could have been there to honor her life. I know she will be deeply missed by many.

We are very grateful to be a part of the DeLeon family. Tia Chepa always received us with open arms, a happy personality and much fanfare. Tia Chepa left us with many beautiful memories that live on within our hearts. Tia will continue to live at the center of the DeLeon family, and as the strength that she has left behind within her children. In loving memory of Tia Chepa and with broken hearts, we wish you the best that life can bring today and in the future. Liz and Mike

Mom was such a beautiful and kind person who loved her family and always was willing to help anybody or give a word of advise to whoever needed it. She was an angel on earth and now she is an angel in heaven looking over all of us. Love you Mom
