Otilia Delgado (Suarez)

March 12, 1928 – October 20, 2022

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.
Otilia passed on October 20, 2022, in Austin, TX, at age 94.

    Otilia was the most generous person I’ve ever met, not only with food, but with her heart. Her life was hard, but it never hardened her. That takes strength.

    Rachel, I’m so sorry for your great loss. I do remember how sweet your mom was. I remember she would prepare snacks for Louie and I before we went to go sell Cornhusker souvenirs at the games on Saturdays. Good bless you and your family.
