Abigay passed away Friday 10/12/12 in Carson City, Nev. at the age of 75 years. She was born in 1937 in the small town of Citala, Jalisco, Mexico. She married at the tender age of 15 years, and immigrated to the United States with her family in 1971, at the age of 34. She lived in San Jose, Calif. for 28 years, and the last 13 years in Carson City, Nev. She, along with her husband of 60 years, Juan Jose Sosa, raised five children. She was a great cook and treasured her time with family above all else. She always stressed education, hard work, and faith in God as the way to improve one’s lot in life. She was a great motivator and loved to hear the success stories of her children and grandchildren. She worked for, and found, the American Dream. She will be missed by all that knew her.

She is survived by four siblings, Amparo, Gloria, Miguel, and Javier Gonzalez; as well as by four of her children, Laura, Martin, Gloria, and Marivel Sosa; and numerous nieces and nephews.
