The Zuniga family lost the stem to their family tree and were left with fallen leaves on February 13, 2021. Rebekah Vasquez Zuniga, better known as Moms, was born on July 29, 1935. She gained her wings and has been reunited with her husband, Raul and son Roy. Moms, the matriarch and heart of the Zuniga family, devoted her life to the family. Having been through it all, she instilled her wisdom in her children and grandchildren to ensure they lead a better life. Her strong Catholic faith granted her resilience and gave her the will to overcome any affliction. She never hesitated to lend a helping hand and expected nothing in return. Although departed, Moms will never be forgotten, and the seeds she left behind will continue to grow and blossom for years to come.
Rebekah is preceded in death by her husband Raul Zuniga, Sr., son Roy Zuniga, father Jose Maria Vasquez, mother Evangelina Rodriguez, brothers Ruben Garza and Tadeo R. Vasquez, and sister Lydia Peña.
