Obituary of Rita Guzman Vasquez

Rita Guzman Vasquez, of Yuba City, CA, passed away peacefully on November 29, 2022, at Mercy General Hospital in Sacramento, CA, after a short illness at the age of 80. Rita was born on February 28, 1942, in the Town of El Charco, Uriangato, Guanajuato, Mexico. She was a Yuba City resident for over 50 years and was a homemaker for most of her life. Rita was a wonderful mother and wife, always putting herself second to make sure her family was taken care of. A tireless and relentless provider for her family, she valued education and took great pride in providing opportunities for her children to be successful. Later in life, she loved reading the newspaper every morning and taking walks outside her home. Her children are eternally grateful for all the love and support she provided, and for being an amazing role model. Mom, we will miss everything about you, your kindness, your laughter, and even the occasional stern look of accountability. You were always there for us and we promise to do our best to provide for each other and your grandchildren. We love you and we are at peace knowing that you are now back with Dad. She is survived by her sons, Mike (Silvia) Vasquez of Rocklin, CA, and Alberto Vasquez of Yuba City, CA; her daughters, Elvia Vasquez, and Gloria Vasquez of Yuba City, CA; granddaughters, Emily Vasquez of Rocklin, CA, and Gabriela Vasquez of Yuba City, CA; and grandson, Dominic Hernandez of La Jolla, CA.
