She was born on May 31, 1935, in Uvalde to Santos E. Luna and Ida P. Luna.
She married Eutimio Z. Torres Jr. in Uvalde on April 20, 1954. Mom’s greatest joy was family time with all of her children and their families who she adored. She enjoyed making her home beautiful by always keeping it immaculate. Mom also loved to cook and bake and was known as the "Pie Queen". Nobody baked a better pie than she did. Mom also loved to go to casinos and play on the slot machines. She traveled to numerous destinations with her husband just to gamble, which paid off a few times.
