Otilia Delgado (Suarez) was born on March 12, 1928, to Elvira Mendoza and Ramon Suarez.
She was first married to Francisco Godinez in Jerecuaro, Mexico, and had two children, Bill Godinez and Fred Godinez.
After a divorce from Francisco Godinez, she remarried Fred R. Delgado in 1962. They had two more children, Rachel Delgado and Linda Delgado. Fred R. Delgado passed away in 2005, leaving Otilia a wife of 43 years. Following, she would frequently say, “Fred R. Delgado was the love of [her] life.”
Otilia was a devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a very faithful catholic. She enjoyed family, shopping, listening to records, singing, dancing, and cooking homemade tortillas. Nobody left her home without a full belly. For a portion of her life, she spent weekends knitting baby outfits for friends and family. She worked at Mutual of Omaha for over 20 years, and her position at retirement was a Nightshift Maintenance Supervisor.
