Emma Hermosillo, 89, of Rancho Palos Verdes, passed away early on Saturday, December 15, 2018. She was born to the late Carlos and Luisa Pereyra on April 23, 1929 in San Pedro. She attended Barton Hill Elementary School, Dana Jr. High School, and San Pedro High School. First and foremost, she was a loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Emma was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends. She loved studying and trying new recipes after watching the cooking channels in her free time.

She worked for LAUSD as a bilingual teacher’s aide for many years until she retired to spend time traveling with her husband. Emma was preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, Francisco Hermosillo. She is survived by her four children, Frank (Debbie), David, Carmen, and Arthur, as well as her five grandchildren, Emily Hermosillo, Cristina Hermosillo, Elizabeth Hermosillo, David Hermosillo, and Francisco Hermosillo III. She is also survived by her sisters, Erminia Espinoza, Esther Del Rio, and Elizabeth Muniz and her brother, Carlos Pereyra. She was predeceased by her sisters Ruth Garcia and Lea Almaraz and her brother, Ismael Pereyra. Many thanks to her son, David, who lovingly and compassionately cared for her during the last 5 years of her life.
