Jacinto Magaña Ambriz
On July 7th, 2020, at the age of 89, God called a beautiful soul home. Jacinto had suffered a stroke and was receiving care at St. Francis Hospital in Greenwood, IN when he passed away peacefully. Jacinto was born in Mexico on July 26, 1930. He was son of Vicente Magaña and Virginia Ambriz. Jacinto had eight brothers and sisters: Maria, Celerina, Delgadina, Cenon, Rosalina, Miliana, Micaela and Gonsalo. Jacinto married his love of his life, Evangelina Navarro, on January 4, 1953 and were able to celebrate 67 years of marriage. Jacinto and Evangelina had thirteen children during their marriage, three of which passed away early on during infancy (Hilda, Emiterio and Jose). The ten surviving children are Carolina (Perez) of Anaheim, CA, Telesforo Magaña of Mexico, Fortunata (Antunez Magaña) of Anaheim, CA, Hilda (Barron) of Anaheim, CA, Maricela Magaña of Anaheim, CA, Sulema (Herrera) of Santa Ana, CA, Antonio Magaña of San Bernardino, CA, Lorena (Nava) of Indianapolis, IN, Hector Magaña of Greenwood, IN and Leonel Magaña Leon of Greenwood, IN.
Anyone who knew Jacinto, knew that he enjoyed the simple things in life. His priority was always making sure his family came first and that they were well taken care of. He took pride in his family by working hard as a migrant worker during the 90s. He later became a US citizen and continued to work even harder to give his children a better life. Throughout his life, one would see him enjoy the simplicity in the beauty of his garden. Jacinto was a man full and sure of his faith. He was someone who would lend a hand without thinking twice. He always brought joy accompanied by laughter. He celebrated the life and accomplishments of each of his 39 grandchildren and 29 great grandchildren.
