May 27, 1932 - February 28, 2020
Born on May 27, 1932, Juana Rosa Santos, a longtime Mesa resident, passed away on February 28, 2020. Juana met Fred B Santos, an airman at Luke Air Force base, at a soda shop in Glendale, AZ. Both quickly fell in love and were married soon after that. She loved spending time with family and friends. Family gatherings always involved plenty of delicious food she’d cook. Juana was also creative and the original DIYer of her time. She could fix things out of whatever was handy and did it often. She also loved to sew, often making clothing for her loved ones. Gardening was one her most beloved hobbies and she had the greenest of green thumbs and could grow anything. She treasured her roses the most, and was very proud of them, showing them off to visitors. Juana is preceded in death by her loving husband Fred B. Santos Sr, her grandson Christopher “Todd” Santos, sisters Beatrice, Bertha, Vera, brothers Manuel, and Gilbert. Surviving her in death are her children Rossan Santos, Fred Santos, and Sandra Santos, six grandchildren; Shari Mangosing, Daniel Santos, Shannon Barnes, Alyssa Yanez, Candie Santos, and Nikko Arrieta; eight Great grandkids, Alexia Robles, Jordan Gooden, Daniel Santos, Vincent Santos, Celesta Santos, Selina Santos, Thalia Padilla, and Natalie Santos; sister Mary and brothers Paul and Andrew. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 from 6-8pm at Meldrum Mortuary, 52 N Macdonald in Mesa, AZ, 85201. Services will be held on Thursday at 11am at Meldrum Mortuary and she will be interred in at the City of Mesa Cemetery in Mesa. Lunch will be at Pioneer Park, Ramada #2, 526 E. Main Street, Mesa, AZ 85203.
