Eighteen months later came Antonio, five years later she had her last child, and finally a girl, Olivia. When Olivia was a baby she married Valentine Alarcon up until his death and she never remarried.
She struggled with addiction most of her life. Until March 2017, and finally broke this cycle and started her road to success. Beginning with her job at Oasis Stop and Go on Washington and Filer, she loved her customers and they loved and enjoyed her smiles saying, “Now make good choices”.
