Ana "Lizzy" Apodaca-Fuentes, 41 years of age, entered into rest on December 6, 2010 surrounded by her family. Ana "Lizzy" was a very sociable person, always had people at her house and would put the best parties together in a snap! She had a revolving door in her home for anyone in of need, whether it was a meal, a place to sleep, a lending ear (she was a great confidant). She was the most successful Cupid, and the best friend in the world.
Ana "Lizzy" fought a courageous battle with leukemia. Among her plans for the future (besides designing her church wedding dress) was to make the hispanic community aware of the lives that could be saved if people signed up to be bone marrow donors. She was the best mother you could ever ask for, the coolest sister, the most generous neighbor and the greatest wife in the world. Her greatest love was her husband, kids, family and friends.
Her legacy will live on through her children.
She was preceded in death by her father Manuel Fuentes and her Mother Maria Fuentes, one sister, Maria Miranda, and one daughter, Alyssandra Apodaca. She is survived by her beloved husband Antonio "Tony" Apodaca, her children Krsitina, TJ and Nichol; Six brothers and sisters: Fermin Fuentes, Alfredo Fuentes, Rosalio Fuentes, Alma Herrera and Nelly Fuentes.. all of Phoenix, and sister Maria Jesus Rascon of Mexico; 21 nieces and nephews.
