"Delfina Luna Chavez , 78 passed away on February 12, 2024 in Visalia California. She was the wife of Cornelio Chavez whom she spent just over 63 1/2 years of marriage with. Cornelio recently passed away earlier this month on February 1, 2024. It must have been in His plan that they be reunited so quickly. She was born on 4-23-45 in Mathis, Texas to Antonio and Elvira Luna. She is survived by their 7 children, son Eliseo Chavez (wife Susanne), daughter Elizabeth Muniz, daughter Naomi (Mimi) Chavez Haas (husband Ron), Cornelio Chavez Jr. (wife Rosa) , daughter Delfina Jahnigen, son Danny Chavez (wife Tina), and youngest daughter Nora Samaduroff (husband Nik) , 16 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. Delfina was a very hard worker and always helped to provide for her family. She worked in cotton fields, grape vineyards, a sewing factory, nursery, and packing houses. She spent many years working for Sunkist, which is where she retired from . She was very talented and crafty. She knew how and taught her daughters to cook, sew, garden and crochet. Delfina once bought a do-it-yourself book on upholstery and did some great re-upholstery jobs. She loved to quilt and crochet and was constantly working on a project to gift to someone. Many relatives have cherished homemade items that she took the time to make for them. She liked to paint. Whether it was the living room walls , a park bench, or tire planter , something always needed a fresh coat of paint. Delfina was very generous, strong, fiesty and loved being in charge. Maybe that\u0027s why she needed to go find Pop. She will be missed. Rest in peace until we see you both again. Special thanks to Ruth\u0027s Open Arms House in Visalia California, where she spent from 2-1-24 to 2-12-24. The staff was amazing and made her last days as peaceful as possible.
