Delia Torres Vasquez, 62, was born in Los Angeles, Ca. on November 26, 1950 and passed away in Whittier, Ca. on February 2, 2013. Delia had a soft, loving heart. She loved spending time with all her family from small little visits to large celebrations of any kind. She spent most of her time caring for her mother. Together they enjoyed playing Lottaria with the ladies, watching her Novalas and getting together with friends for Pot Lucks and Bible Studies. Delia recently retired from the East Whittier School District as a Bilingual Instructional Aide. She always had a heart for children. She was a truly special person and will be missed dearly by all who knew her.
