During my time as a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala, she was known as one of the most successful and popular female entertainers in Mexican music. Not only was she a talented singer and dancer, she was a businesswoman who helped produce and direct several tv shows.

She was divorced and spent a good deal of time building her success as a single mother in a culture where women often struggle unsuccessfully for respect and recognition.

Que descanse en paz.
