MENDOTA - Rocio Contreras, 49, of Mendota passed away peacefully at her home on Oct. 9, 2020 surrounded by her loved ones after a decade-long battle with Scleroderma.
A service will take place on Saturday, Oct. 17 via Zoom. If you would like more information, please contact the family. Merritt Funeral Home, Mendota is assisting with arrangements.
Rocio was born Sept. 15, 1971 in Guadalajara, Jalisco to Salvador and Guadalupe (Arce) Reyes. She married Ismael Contreras on Dec. 30, 1990.
Survivors include her husband of Mendota; one son, Ismael “Milo” Contreras of Mendota; one daughter, Mayra (Ismael “Pito”) Pagan of LaSalle; one grandson, Joziah Pagan of LaSalle; her mother, Guadalupe of Mexico; six sisters; three brothers; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her father and her mother-in-law, Elvira.
Rocio was a devoted wife, mother, grandma and friend. Her greatest joy in life was to be with her family. She had a special relationship with her only grandchild, Joziah, who will miss his “Atis” dearly. Although her life was short, her memory is eternal. She will always be remembered as a very caring, thoughtful and spiritual person who was always willing to lend a helping hand. She had a great sense of style and would love to dress according to the occasion. Her contagious laugh will always be remembered by all that met her.
Memorials may be directed to the family.
