Obituary

On Tuesday, August 7th, 2018, Emily Perez Gomez, loving wife and mother to four children, passed away at the age of 77 in Salinas, California.

Emily was born on February 11th, 1941 in Nueces County, Texas to Margarito and Beneslada Perez. She grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas and then later California. On December 11th, 1960 she married John T. Gomez. They successfully raised a son, John, and three daughters, Elisa, Julie, and Erica.

A thriving resident of the Watsonville and Prunedale farming community, Emily ran the family farm for over a decade. Later as a homemaker, Emily was able to indulge in her love of cooking, gardening and was always happy to host her family. Her children were her pride and joy, and she was a dedicated mother active in her children’s schooling. She continued to be active in her grandchildren’s lives attending their past times, from school plays, to athletic events. She was not shy of the occasional family outings to casinos.

She is survived by her husband, John T. Gomez, their children, John P. Gomez (Leslie Bowling), Elisa Bonfoey (Edward Monroe Bonfoey), Julie Williams (Dale Williams), and Erica Gomez-Valenzuela (Bryan Valenzuela), and grandchildren, Nicole, Chelsea, Joshua, Jacob, Carly, Colby, Elena, and Zachary.
