Obituary for Matilda Morales

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Matilde Morales. “GG,” “Buelita,” and “grandma” to her many grandchildren, she passed peacefully in her sleep on December 24th, 2017.

Matilde was born in Colorado, Texas in 1923 to Rafelia and Guadalupe Morales and raised by her aunt and uncle Manuel and Martina Leva in Soledad, CA. Years later, after moving to Gonzales, Matilde started a family raising six children. Through her strong sense of self and entrepreneurial spirit, Matilde provided for her family with several successful restaurants. She was an avid member of the Gonzales Saint Theodore's Church, Our Lady of Guadalupe, and the Rebecca Club. She went out of her way to help those in need, either with providing shelter or a home cooked meal. Matilde’s menudo was always found as a warm comfort for all those who happen to stroll into her home or restaurant.

Matilde is preceded by her brother Eddie Morales, her son, Ricardo Morales, her daughter Rita Ramirez-Velasquez, her grandson Anthony Martinez, and granddaughter Rita Martinez. She is survived by her sisters Emma Aguilar and Conception Ramos, her son Cipriano Garcia, and her daughters Cirila Corona, Enriqueta Little, and Susan Bojorquez. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, and 8 great great grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Cipriano Garcia’s school Gateway Center located at Gateway Center of Monterey County Inc. 850 Congress Ave Pacific Grove CA 93950 be greatly appreciated.

Services are scheduled for Monday January 8, 2017 at Saint Theodore Church, 116 South Belden Street Gonzales, CA 93926, viewing from 10 am to 11 am; funeral mass begining t 11 am, followed by a burial service at the Soledad Cemetery, 1711 Metz Road Soledad, CA 93960. Reception will be held back at Saint Theodore Church in Gonzales.
