She loved her family, fashion, shoes, cooking and feeding other people. But above all else it was her grandchildren that were her pride and joy. Mina was a generous and compassionate spirit, a loving mother, sister, daughter, a caring aunt, and was beloved by many friends.

Mina was preceded in death by her mother Dorothy Rose Morales, her husband Reyes Sanchez, her daughter Michelle Marina Mora-Lopez, her grandparents, Regina & Juan Lopez, Isabel & Andres Peña and her brothers, Arturo Peña, and Andrew Lee Peña.

    Mina was a beautiful person inside and out. I feel so blessed to have a cousin that was so kind and sincere. When I was a younger girl I remember her letting her daughter Michelle and I play in her make up and hi heels. I loved spending the night at her house. Memories that I will keep close to my heart forever❤️
    I love you and miss you Mina
