Aurora passed peacefully in her sleep after a lengthy illness. She was born in Palmarejo, Zacatecas, Mexico, one of twelve children. Her parents, Marcelino and Petra Limon, moved shortly thereafter to Yahualica, Jalisco, which remains the home of many family members. Aurora married Jose Refugio (Joe) Gonzalez in 1954 and emigrated to the United States where her husband worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad in Dunsmuir. They raised three sons, Alberto, Marcelino, and Miguel. Aurora was a part-time housekeeper for many households in Dunsmuir including her friend Reva Coon. She was known for her amazing cooking and baking and her dedication to her home and family. She kept several cultural traditions alive through her cooking, stitching, sewing, and knitting skills. She was the partner and supportive spouse of Jose, never leaving his side until her death. She passed shortly before their 68th anniversary. She was an active parishioner at St. John’s Catholic Church in Dunsmuir for over 50 years and was an Altar server. She also hosted Our Lady of Guadalupe celebrations in December. She also attended Railroad Retirement Luncheons with her husband Jose. Aurora had family and many friends in Dunsmuir, McCloud, Mt Shasta and Weed. She cherished her visits to her family in Mexico, Cozumel, and her visits to family in Santa Barbara. She loved visits from family to her northern California home, enjoying family gatherings on holidays, birthdays, and summer barbecues. She leaves her husband Jose and her three sons Alberto (Linda Mireya), Marcelino (Amanda) and Miguel (Mary Jean) and Kara Gonzalez. She adored her grandchildren Elias, Emilio, and Brittany.
