Petra was a member of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. She was a true praying woman of God. She would recite her daily prayers late into the night. She was a not morning person unless she had plans with her favorite person, Narcissa Hernandez. Those two could shop and talk all day long after losing her spouse eighteen months ago. Narcissa has been her rock. She lived a sweet and simple life. She enjoyed shopping, getting her hair done and eating out, but most of all she enjoyed being in her church every Sunday morning, especially to receive Holy Communion. Petra loved her family dearly and carried each one of them in her heart. She was blessed with many, many good friends and will be deeply missed by all those who knew and loved her.

Serving as pallbearers will be Fidencio Hernandez Jr., Ernest Machuca, Tony Lopez, Alex Paredes, Jeff Gonzales, and Carlos Montoya.
