eighteen grand children, and fifteen great
Josefina, was born on March 06, 1935, in
Ciudad Manuel Doblado, Guanajuato,
Mexico, to Merced and Felipa Garcia. Her
mother, passed away when she was only 9
years of age, so her father had to become a
single dad. Her father was a Judge, and a
well known politician, and out of all her
siblings, she was always with him. So since
a very young age, her father had her
participate in political campaigns, by having
her give her very charismatic political
She was also very active with the
community, at just 13 she was a volunteer nurse
responsible for vaccinating residents that
were under served in the City, and the out
skirts of the City, and when she turned 16
she received a certification in teaching with
what she continued to serve her community.
She met and married Julian Mireles, in
1951. In 1971, after years of marriage, came
with her husband to the U.S.A. and both
settled in Sunnyvale, CA. where they both
worked, in the fields, and in the cannerys,
and little by little began to bring the rest of
the children, and watched them grow there.
Josefina, was a servant at heart, and had so much love that she gave unconditionally.
First following in the foot steps of her father, then creating her
own foot prints for us to follow, to make sure
that her little nine ducks never got lost, she
loved her kids so much. She loved her town
of CD. Manuel Doblado, GTO. Mexico and
tried to visit as much as possible. Never
forgetting where she grew up, and making
sure her children didnt either.
Her children will remember her, as a hard
working, caring, happy, and generous
mother, woman of so much knowledge,
always writing, singing songs, and listening
to music. She will definitely be the reason
why my sisters always will know how to be,
and continue to be the strong women that
they are, and my brothers and I, to be able
to recognize a strong woman when we see one.
In 2005, Josefina at the age of
70 years. Old, went back to her home town,
for a few years, she became a volunteer for
the red cross. She was chosen and crowned
princess of the senior age community.
She will always be our princess!
