Irene Bracchini Breeden passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her family and into the loving arms of her Heavenly Father, on March 8, 2020. She was born November 15, 1938, in Tlanepantla, Mexico, to Juan and Laura Bracchini, and grew up on a ranch with her parents and nine brothers and sisters. In 1967, she married the love of her life, Lawrence Breeden, and settled in San Antonio, Texas, soon after. There, they raised two children and enjoyed many happy years together before moving to Salinas in 2011 to be close to their daughter and her family.

She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Lawrence Breeden, son, Robert Breeden, her daughter, Laura Viarengo (Robert), and her grandchildren, Julia and Joseph Viarengo, all of Salinas; her sister, Sylvia Bracchini of San Antonio; and numerous other siblings, nieces and nephews in Mexico.

The family would especially like to thank Mae Mangompit and Jennifer Ruiz, who took such loving care of Irene in her final months.


In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider making a donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN. 38105 in her name.

Irene will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, nonna, hermana and tia, and all will miss her dearly.
