Desidera was born in Guatemala on February 23, 1935 to Luciano and Justina Ceron Lopez. She immigrated to the United States in 1985 and became a proud U.S. resident. She dedicated her life to caring for her husband, children and grandchildren. She was a wonderful cook with her Guatemalan recipes. She really enjoyed reading her Bible and singing church songs while cooking and gardening. Desidera did like animals as long as they remained outside of the house. She enjoyed gardening and had many beautiful flowers that she took a lot of pride in. She especially enjoyed feeding the birds in the back yard. She also loved rocks of all kinds and plants. The family recalled that when you hugged her, she would always kiss you on the neck. The hugs made her smile. Desidera took great care of her grandkids and was the best mom and wife.
