Obituary for Angelina Holguin

Vondel Smith Mortuary (S. Western Ave)

Angelina, 62, entered Heaven’s gates on July 25, 2020 in Phoenix, Arizona. She was born to Concepción Holguin Cordero and Josefina Sotelo Marquez in Práxedis G. Guerrero, Chihuahua, México on April 7, 1958. At the age of 17, she left her native country and migrated to the United States with hope to provide a better life for her family. She worked very hard to achieve that dream while staying humble and often putting other people’s needs before her own. She always saw the good in everyone. Angelina was also an outgoing, happy soul that was the life of the party anywhere she went. She loved dancing and singing songs to the music of Juan Gabriel and many others. Cooking for her family gave her much happiness and they loved all of her delicious Mexican cuisine, especially her menudo and chile rojo. Her true happiness was spending time with her family. She was the matriarch of the family, often filling in as “mom”, she nurtured and took care of those she loved and loved her. Angelina will always be remembered as a kind friend, caring and loving mother, and devoted grandmother who will be deeply missed.
