Inez Aceves Life Story

Inez Mejest Aceves., our beloved Mother and Grandma, was not just a matriarch in name but truly the queen of our hearts. Her regal presence extended beyond the confines of her home, radiating a warmth and grace that left an indelible mark on everyone she encountered.

As the queen of hospitality, Inez ruled over a kingdom of love and acceptance. Her castle was adorned not with grandeur but with the laughter of children, the aroma of home-cooked meals, and the melody of cherished tunes. She reigned with a gentle strength that made her home a sanctuary for all who sought solace in her embrace.

Inez's love for her family knew no bounds. Like a benevolent queen, she nurtured her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren, imparting not just wisdom but also the importance of unity and compassion. Her royal decree was one of inclusivity, as she welcomed everyone into her realm with open arms and an open heart.

A proud descendant of Mexican heritage, Inez wore her cultural identity as a crown. She celebrated the vibrant tapestry of her ancestry, instilling a sense of pride in her family for the rich traditions of Mexico. In the grand tapestry of her life, the threads of her dual heritage intertwined seamlessly, creating a legacy of strength, resilience, and love.

Inez, the artisan queen, demonstrated her craftsmanship not only in the jewelry she meticulously created but also in the intricate relationships she wove with those around her. Her hands, weathered by hard work, told a story of determination and dedication-a story that will be passed down through generations as a testament to the queen's enduring spirit.

In the symphony of her life, music played a vital role. The queen danced to the rhythm of "Tootsie Roll" and found solace in the soulful notes of "Blueberry Hill." Her love for music was a royal decree that added melody and harmony to the everyday moments she shared with her loved ones.

Inez leaves behind her beloved children David Mejest Aceves, Elizabeth Aceves Mendoza and her husband Lorenzo, and Rachel Aceves Medellin and her husband Pete; 11 grandchildren Andrea Aceves, Luticha Neria, Paul Mendoza, Darla Neria, Joe Mendoza, Dino Baldreras, Abel Neria, Francis Amaya, Jennifer Jimenez, Loren Mendoza and Rubie Mendoza; her sister Mary Mejest and numerous great grandchildren, great great grandchildren and nieces and nephews. She joins in heaven her parents Frederico and Juliana Mejest and her siblings Henrietta Parker, Francis Aceves and Fred Mejest. She also joins her ex-husband, Joe Aceves who she insisted in her final days was there to take her home.

As we mourn the passing of our queen, Inez Mejest Aceves, let us remember the lessons she bestowed upon us-the power of love, the importance of embracing our heritage, and the significance of creating a kingdom of warmth and acceptance. Though she may no longer walk among us, her spirit reigns eternal, a guiding light for all who were fortunate enough to be touched by her royal presence. May our queen find eternal peace in the grandeur of the heavens, forever watching over her kingdom with love and benevolence.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
