April 9, 1937 - August 10, 2017
Eva Terrazas, 80, of Oak Lawn, Illinois entered eternal life on Thursday, August 10, 2017. She was born on April 9, 1937 in Durango, Mexico to Octaviano Terrazas and Celia Terrazas (nee Del Villar). She is survived by her siblings: Fidel Terrazas, Bernarda (Alberto) Rivera, and Manuela Terrazas. She was a loving mother to: Lt. Colonel Enrique (Claudia) Hernandez, Christopher (Gail) Hernandez, Jesse Hernandez, Manuel (Connie) Frausto, and Ricardo (Teresa) Diaz. She was an adoring grandmother to Brian, Amanda, Diego, Felipe, Adam, Cora Marie, Nathan, Joshua, Dennis (Christine), Brock (Pam), Amanda, Charlie (Kristie), Matthew, Sam, Monica, Bree, Riley, Leilani, and Ulysses and was blessed to be great-grandmother to Marley, Cayden, Sebastian, Nathan, Hannah, Carlie, Emmie, and Evelyn. She was a loving aunt to many nieces and nephews. Grandma Eva was preceded in death by her beautiful angel, Cora Marie, with whom she will rest near for all of eternity. Eva was born in a little town in Durango, Mexico and immigrated to the U.S. in search of a better life for her family. She was a single mom who worked very hard all of her life, working various jobs including as a meatpacker in the tough Back of the Yards meat packing industry where she worked for over 20 years. Eva fought and worked hard always putting her five boys first. Her family never went hungry and were always provided for through Eva’s hard work and dedication. She protected and single-handedly kept her boys off the tough streets of Chicago. Her joy in life was her boys, their families, and most of all her beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A hug and time with family is all she asked for and needed. Eva Terrazas, a rock, a strong woman, who persevered against all odds and never gave up. A single mom doing all she could to raise five boys whom she was blessed to see grow up into honorable manhood. Her shining light will always and forever be with us and all of the people whose lives were touched by her big heart.
