She was born to the late Jose and Inez Chagoya on March 25, 1928. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, Escolastico Eureste, Jr. and her brothers, Consuelo, Guadalupe and Gabriel Chagoya and sisters, Jesusa Chagoya Facundo, Antonia Chagoya Facundo.
She was an amazing lady who loved to sew. Catalina or “Cata” as she was known to most of her friends, was an excellent seamstress. Her giving and loving spirit was admired by many. She was very active with her church and was very dedicated to her Catholic faith. Family and friends loved her cooking especially her tamales and tortillas.
To Catalina, her family was most important. She had such a positive impact on so many lives and will be tremendously missed. She appreciated the abundance of her friendships and the love she received.
She is survived by brothers, Francisco, Miguel, and Epifanio Chagoya: sisters, Eulalia Serna, Carmen Marmolejo, Sara Cardenas and Janie Rodriguez, and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank the nurses and doctors at both Hays Nursing and Rehabilitation and Central Texas Medical Center, ER and ICU units, for the warmth and compassion she received from them.
