Trinidad E. Carrillo

Trinidad E. Carrillo

May 21, 1932 — October 31, 2020

Our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, Maria Trinidad Escalante Barron de Carrillo, went to our Heavenly Father Saturday, October 31.

Trinidad was born in the historic city of Huejuquilla el alto, Jalisco, Mexico on May 21, 1932 to Trinidad Escalante and Francisca Barron. On October 1, 1951 Trinidad married her husband Jesus Ortiz Carrillo, both natives of Huejuquilla.

Her son, Cuauhtemoc, and husband, Jesus, precede Maria Trinidad in death. She is survived by her children, Obdulia Sanchez (Juan), Evelia Chengcuenca (Theodore), Pedro Carrillo, (Arlette), Gregoria Bonano, Romualdo Carrillo (Angela), Frances Pyburn (Brent), Jesse Carrillo, Elizabeth Flores (Jesse), and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Trinidad enjoyed spending time shopping at Dillard’s, Macy’s, and Ross. Her preferred restaurants were Fortunate House (any good Chinese buffet), Jalisco’s, and Sizzlers. Trinidad cooked traditional Mexican food, in particular Jalisco style meals. A source of joy was feeding the ducks at Bucklin Park. A devoted Catholic, Trinidad prayed her rosary daily, cherished, and derived strength in her Catholic Christian faith. 

Our loss has created a tremendous void in our hearts, but her loved ones are sustained by the memories of our mother’s loving advice and the memories we shall cherish in our hearts “la verdad no peca solamente incomoda.” Trinidad’s pilgrimage in this earth has been a transition to an everlasting one with our Heavenly Father and her deceased loved ones. Our family gives our Heavenly Father thanks and praise for blessing us with an amazing woman who guided us dutifully and faithfully all our lives.

Viewing and the recitation of the rosary will be at Frye Chapel in Brawley Friday, November 20, from 6 p.m. till 9 p.m. Mass will be celebrated Saturday, November 21, at 11 a.m. in Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in El Centro. Burial will immediately follow at Mountain View Cemetery in Calexico. May perpetual light shine on Trinidad.
