Mary was loved by many people. She worked at Ray High School as a custodian and also at El Sornorense in Kearny.

Mary could light up a room with her contagious laughter, amazing cooking abilities, and her quick-witted ways. Many were drawn to her and feel incredibly blessed to have known her, even luckier to call her a friend. She had many talents that she passed on to her children and grandchildren such as cooking, baking, and crocheting. She loved being surrounded by her family, especially during the holidays. Mary was the matriarch of the Naranjo Family. She was an angel on earth, but the Lord has called her home. Mary you will truly be missed. Te Quiero Muncho.
Services were held Saturday, April 21, 2021, at Griffith Mortuary. She was laid to rest at Kearny Memorial Cemetery.
