Maria Luisa A. Echeverria1918 ~ 2013Salt Lake City, UtahMom (Lula) was born on August 25, 1918 in Guatamala City, Guatamala. She came into the United States in 1966 and later proudly became a U.S. citizen. In 1954, she and her family were converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Since mom came from humble beginnings she learned the value of hard work which she conveyed to her posterity. Education, respect, faith, and family were also principals that were important to her. She had a deep love for her entire family but equally loved her 2nd family, the Bambergers. Mom's sense of humor, was expressed through her teasing. She was a wonderful cook. We'll miss her tamales, chili rellenos and mole. She leaves a legacy of 8 children; Rosa Alvarez, Carlos, Carmen Wood (Wayne), Jorge (Barbara), Luis (Veronica), Laura Cardwell, Marina Tello (Otto), and Bertha; 23 Grandchildren; 54 Great Grandchildren; 7 Great Great Grandchildren. The family would like to thank Millcreek Hospice for their tender care. Funeral Services will be at 2:00 P.M. Saturday June 15, 2013 at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park and Mortuary 3401 Highland Drive Salt Lake City, Utah.
