Our respected mother Ramona L. Sena peacefully passed away at home on Tuesday July 11, 2017 at the youthful age of 86. She loved people, her family and her faith and was a steadfast parishioner of Immaculate Conception Church. For many years she served as a catechist, fundraiser for the religious education program, and choir member of the parish. She valued a Catholic education for her children and found ways to send them to Catholic school with the support of her husband. A natural business woman from a young age, she enjoyed learning and sharing her knowledge with others. She ran an income tax service from her home for many years until her retirement in 2014. She was philanthropic and generous with her time serving as a volunteer court translator for friends and people in need, referring others to community services in town, visiting the sick or those in prison, representing clients during audits, taking donated clothes to needy families, providing transportation for the home bound, and inviting others to her table for a meal, cup of coffee or a visit.
We miss her engaging presence, quick wit, sense of humor and deep faith. Ramona was the first born child of Angelita and Ramon Lopez, born in Yuma Arizona on January 15, 1931. After completing her education, she married veteran Cornelius J. Sena and began a family life of raising ten children. Cornelius Jr., Maria (Anthony) Leyvas, David, John, Rachel, OP (Dominican Sister of Peace), Steven, Alberta (Barry) Cambeilh, Michael (deceased), Ramon and Irma (David) DiRocco. She was preceded in death by her husband Cornelius J. Sena, her son Michael and grandson Manuel. She is survived by 9 children, 13 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren.

Pall bearers: David Sena, John Sena, Ramon Sena, Joseph DiRocco, Mark Ochoa & Anthony Leyvas
