Tribute

 

Hildelisa Mejia Favela passed away peacefully on September 13, 2020, at the age of 79 in Modesto, CA. Hilde was born December 24, 1940, to parents Eustaquio Mejia and Teresa Favela, in Guasave, Sinaloa, Mexico. Hilde leaves behind her daughter, Maria Teresa Ruiz, and her son-in-law, Alan. Hilde was a loving Grandmother to Alan(Oni), Astrid (Mitzelita), Alexa (Marie), and Andrew (Eustice) Ruiz; they lovingly called her Nani.  

Hilde will always be remembered for her generosity; she was always wanting to give to everyone and would never expect anything in return. She brought laughter and love with her wherever she went. In her spare time, she enjoyed gardening, reading books, and eating lots of sweets (especially chocolate). However, her favorite thing to do was to be a grandma “Nani” to her grandchildren and create lasting memories with all of them. She enjoyed getting to see them grow up and form families of their own.

She was a devoted teacher and principal, always having a passion for sharing her knowledge with those around her, many lovingly called her “profesora” or professor, as she left a lasting impact on the many students she taught throughout her years. She had a great joy for teaching which then carried over to the family and led to many more educators including her Daughter, Maria, and Granddaughter, Astrid. 

The family will honor Hilde’s memory in a private ceremony at a later date with a celebration of her life. The family also would like to thank the staff at Casa De Modesto for their care and compassion.
