Maura Carrillo Ferrel

September 5, 1963 — October 8, 2020

Maura Carrillo Ferrel, a childhood resident of Westmorland, died suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 57, in her hometown of Brawley.

She is preceded in death by her father, Jose O. Carrillo. She leaves behind husband Jose "Tony" Ferrel of Brawley; daughter Lydia Ferrel of San Diego; daughter Claudia, son-in-law Justin, and granddaughter Norah Wingate of Brawley.

She is survived by her mother Maria R. Carrillo of Brawley; sister and brother-in-law Alma and Alfonso Gonzalez of Westmorland; sister Betty Carrillo and LeRoy Galvan of Coppell, TX; brother and sister-in-law Joe and Maria Carrillo of Brawley; sister Patti Carrillo-Fehrer of Yakima, WA; sister and brother-in-law Monica and Manuel Oliveros of Chula Vista; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great niece and nephew, godchildren, and friends.

She devoted herself to being helpful, supportive, and loving to everyone around her. Her life and heart were filled with family, both close and extended, as well as countless friendships and comrades. She enjoyed hosting and gathering, quietly and effortlessly making everyone around her feel loved and taken care of. She recently acquired a love of gardening, home projects, and found herself reconnecting with domestic life. She gave 31 years of service to The Boys & Girls Club of Imperial Valley. To say she will be missed is truly an understatement.
