Monica G. Cohetzaltitla

May 4, 1926 ~ March 4, 2023 (age 96) 96 Years Old


Monica G. Cohetzaltitla, 96, of Aurora, IL passed away on March 4, 2023. She was born on May 4, 1926 in Puebla, Mexico, the daughter of Maria and Bernardino Cohetzaltitla. Monica was a beloved daughter to both her parents who taught her beautiful values.  Monica married and had 4 children, 3 daughters: Catalina, Lucia and Francisca and a son, Cristobal.  Monica raised her children as a strong single mother, with much hard work, lots of love, lots of care and all the sacrifices that come from the love of a great Mother.  As her children married and started their own families, she was the loving caregiver to many of her grand-children and great-grandchildren.  She quickly and naturally became a professional Grandma. She was at the front of the family, teaching her children and grand-children Christian-Catholic values, leading by example. 

When the family immigrated to the United States, Monica worked very hard as a home-maker, cleaning-lady, cook in charge of major family events and a daycare center cook and classroom assistant.  She was deeply proud of her work at the daycare where she excitedly boasted that kids liked her food and she liked it more when she was asked to help with the kids, in the classrooms.  At her retirement, Monica was a busy-bee and continued to help her family in any way she could, her life motto was “where can I help?”.  She lived in Aurora with her granddaughter, Maria Teresa and her children, for the past 10+ years. There she was very happy, making many of her sawing creations, her most favorite hobby.  She loved every moment of that and yearned for her next art project.  She shared her things with all her family and offered them so that they take something hand-made by her.  That is the reflection of Monica in life, always a loving and sharing soul.

She is survived by her children, Lucia Sosa, Francisca Sosa and Cristobal Sosa; Granddaughter and Great-grandchildren, Maria T. Reyna, Mayte Y. Naja, Isabella C. Naja, and Daniel A. Naja; Great grand-daughter and Great-great grandchildren: Mayte Naja and Alex Fernandez, Alan Alfonso Nava, Azrael Antares Fernandez and Apolo Alejandro Fernandez; Granddaughter and Great grandchildren, Erika and Shawn Kennison, Adara Kennison, and Aaron Reyna; Granddaughter and great-grandchildren, Veronica and Adam Garcia, Gerold, Erika, and Matthew; Grandson and great-grandchildren, Edgar Reyna, Micheal Reyna, Jeremiah Reyna; Grandson and great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren, Anastasio Sosa, Erendira, Angel, Armando, Marco, Xavier, Delilah, Daisy, Aamilio; Granddaughter and Great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren, Lorena and Jorge Hurtado, Jorge Eduardo Hurtado, Jessica Alarcon, Leslie Hurtado, Jorge Adrian Hurtado, Julian Hurtado, Melanie Anahi Hurtado; Grandson and great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren, Cristobal Sosa Jr., and Elizabeth Camacho, Jocelyn Sosa, Donnie Sosa, Diego Sosa, Noah Sosa, Xavier Rosario; Daughter, children, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren, Francisca and Isaac Tlatenchi, Lino Tlatenchi, Stephanie Tlatenchi, Saul Tlatenchi, Vanery Athena Tlatenchi, Jorge Tlatenchi, Oscar Tlatenchi, Jessica Ramos, Noah Tlatenchi, Ian Tlatenchi, Maria and Agustin Alcateur, Agustin Alcateur, Jr., Stephanie Alcateur, Christoper Alcateur, Virginia Alcateur, Andy Alcateur; and Daughter, children, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren: Lucia Sosa, Clemente Tlatenchi, Refugio Tlatenchi, Reyna Tlatenchi, Ramon Tlatenchi, Joaquina Tlatenchi, Sofia Tlatenchi, Maria Tlatenchi, Pablo Tlatenchi, Isidro Tlatenchi, Melissa and Thalia Neri, Esmeralda Neri and Camila Rivas, Jocelyn Neri and Leilani, Delilah, and James
