Olivia R. Torres
Olivia R. Torres, resident of San Marcos, was received in the hands of our Heavenly Father on July 27, 2013 at the age of 78. Born March 8, 1935 in San Marcos, Olivia was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and aunt. She has been reunited into Heaven with open arms by her loving parent Luciano and Cecilia Rodriguez; sister Estella Alcala and aunt Elisa Salinas. Olivia was such a loving person who showed her warmth and kindness through caring for others. Olivia had many chapters in her life, but nothing meant more to her than her family, especially the grandchildren and great grandchildren. Even though Olivia begins her new life with our Lord, like the wind, her warmth and love will always be felt. My wife, our mother will be dearly missed but not forgotten in our hearts.
