CHANDLER – Lucia (Morales) Sandoval, 92, beloved mother, grandmother, great, and great-great grandmother, passed away peacefully surrounded by family January 6, 2018. She was born January 20, 1925 in Nogales, Sonora, into a family of 6, grew up in Santana and Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, and married Raul Sandoval in April, 1941. She raised 7 children, living in Nogales, Tempe, McNary, Ray and Kearny, Arizona.
Lucia was a devout Catholic, who prayed daily and attended mass every Sunday. She enjoyed sewing, crocheting, gardening, board games, her novellas and making delicious Mexican food. There was nothing like Grandma’s frijoles, fideo and tamales!! Above all else, she was loving, forgiving, cherished family, and created a home where everyone felt welcomed and loved.
