She was born in Santa Lucia, Cuba to the late Benito Trujillo and Ramona Reyes on November 1, 1920, also known as "All Saint's Day." Santa was married to her late husband, Rigoberto Rodriguez, for 70 years prior to his passing in 2009. She was a very loving and selfless woman who was passionate about her family, cooking, sewing, and taking care of her home that she so loved. She was a woman rich in faith and attended church every Sunday. Her family will miss her dearly and will always remember her caring heart, her hard and never-ending work, and, of course, her delicious black beans and rice.
