She loved watching something grow from itsy, bitsy nothing to busy, blooming colors, scents - everything! She loved bacon & salami! She could divide 27 by 4 quick as a whip (6.75)! She loved watching the antics of the birds outside her window. She was also an avid classic movie lover - she could tell you the name of the movie by a single line of dialogue or a note of music! She really loved tho share this knowledge. She was definitely very fun and feisty to the end! She is preceded in death by her oldest daughter, Delores Marie Tuescher and survived by her husband of 64 years, Edward M. Castillo SR. of Dayton, Nevada, daughter Deborah Castillo of Santa Rosa, CA and son & daughter-in-law Edward M. Castillo Jr. & Kathy Castillo of Dayton, Nevada.
