Teresa E. Sanchez

Thousand Oaks, CA

June 21, 1943 - August 19, 2018

Teresa Estrada Sanchez passed peacefully in the early hours of August 19, 2018.  The family would like to thank her remarkable caregivers, her daughter Angelina and longtime friend Carla, for without them we certainly would have lost her sooner.

She was born to Elvira and Abraham Estrada Amezcua in Arteaga Michoac√°n de Ocampo, Mexico on June 21, 1943. Her work ethic, charity, devotion to her faith and family were an example to all who knew her. After college in Mexico she spent some time as a registered teacher serving her community in Arteaga. She settled in Thousand Oaks California in the mid 60s and was a part of its growth. She endeavored as a subcontractor in industrial janitorial and construction maintenance businesses in the area, servicing many of the small and large businesses in Ventura County. She enjoyed her extended family serving her faith and participating at Saint Paschal Baylon Catholic Church.

Words alone can't express the loss her family feels as they remember her strength, encouragement, guidance, humor and daily reminder to enjoy the life and people around you. If you got to know her, you'd know that a smile and a helping hand or thought or word of advice meant the world to her, as she'd return the favor in kind. Her love of music and entertaining with her hospitality will be missed!

She is survived by husband Gorgonio; sons and daughter, Abraham, Angelina and Steve, her sister Olinda, and brother Eudoro. She battled cancer and kidney failure to enjoy the early years of her grandchildren; Story, Jason, Jett and Alyssa. Teresa is preceded in death by her beloved son Michael and brothers, Jose Cruz, Domingo, and Ildefonso.
