Apolonia Torres, age 79, passed after a short illness on June 19, 2021. She is survived by her children, who made up the entirety of her world, Jose Luis Rosas, Norberta Alicia Diaz, Gumecindo Rosas, Maria Clemencia Alvarez, Maria Trinidad DeBoard, Jose Alberto Rosas, Yesenia Ruiz and Leticia Fowler. Besides her children, Apolonia is survived by eleven grandchildren and 9 Great-Grandchildren. Apolonia was born in Nayarit, Mexico and traveled to the U.S. in 1976, on a journey to provide a better life and endless opportunities for her children. She is described by many as strong, independent, head-strong and loving. Her fearlessness and sheer will to push forward regardless of the obstacle’s life placed in front of her is the example anyone who knew her.
