Cruz - Fernandez

Cruz Fernandez, was born to Matilde and Maria G Alvarez in Weslaco Texas May 3, 1935 and passed away February 27, 2022, in Sanger, Ca. Cruz was a longtime Sanger resident and raised her family in Sanger. Cruz enjoyed family gatherings, her plants and garden, she loved watching NFL football games on Sundays, enjoyed a good game of dominoes and loved to visit the casino and play the slot machines. Cruz worked many years at Sanger Rexall Drugstore downtown and for Barr Pharmacy.

One of her thrills was that she won from a scratch off ticket the opportunity to go to " The Big Spin" in Sacramento and spun for a $10,000 dollar prize!

Cruz had a contagious laugh and was friendly to everyone. Cruz was a great wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt to many nieces and nephews and was referred to by many as 'tia peanut".

Cruz married her husband Eugene R. Fernandez on November 6, 1955 and they raised five children, Gloria, Eddie, Alfred, Michael and Martin. Cruz was devoted to her family and worked very hard to provide for their needs.

Cruz is preceded in death by parents Matilde and Maria G. Alvarez, husband Eugene R. Fernandez, sons Eddie, Michael and Martin Fernandez. Grandson Anthony Fernandez. Brothers Louie, Matilde Jr and Ralph Alvarez.

Cruz is survived by two children: daughter Gloria Fernandez, son Alfred Fernandez and his wife Margaret Fernandez. Four grandchildren Martin Fernandez Jr., Michelle Fernandez, Isaac Fernandez and Macy Fernandez. Three brothers Joe, Robert, and Jess Alvarez and one sister Lupe Madrid and many nieces and nephews.

A Memorial mass will be held at St. Mary's Catholic Church located at 828 "O" street in Sanger on Monday March 21 beginning with a rosary at 11 am and mass at 11:30 am.

Cruz will be deeply missed and NEVER forgotten; may she rest in peace.
