Obituary

Dorothy Chavez, age 99, passed away peacefully in her San Mateo home surrounded by her family. She was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After marrying Elias Chavez in 1943, her dream to move to San Francisco, California became a reality. The Bay Area became her permanent home where she raised her four children. She was a caring mother who took great joy in doing whatever she could to help her family. She will be greatly missed but long remembered for her love and devotion to God and family. She is predeceased by her husband, Elias, and survived by her four children, Eva Chapman (Dale), Pearl Bell (Greg), Charles Chavez (Celeste), David Martin Chavez (Brenda); eight grandchildren, John, Hillary, Carla, Andrew, Meghan, Matthew, Anica, Daniel; and six great-grandchildren, Finley, Mara, Harper, Elliot, Ryan, Luke. She will be interred in a private burial at Alta Mesa Memorial Park, Palo Alto. Donations may be made to Wounded Warriors Family Support.
