Ana Maria Lanuza was born on February 8, 1955 in Mexico City to Ruben Barrera Jasso and Maria Lopez Paredes, the oldest of nine children. She grew up in Mexico City. On February 26, 1977, she was united in marriage to the love of her life, Salvador Lanuza Rosas at The Resurrection Catholic Church in Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico. Ana and Salvador lived in Mexico, Illinois, and finally, in Schuyler - place they called home for the past 12 years.

Family was extremely important to Ana, she looked forward to her daily visits with her daughters and grandchildren, as well as frequent phone calls from her siblings and lifelong friends. She loved spending time with her plants and flowers year round, cooking, baking, and making a plethora of crafts - crocheting, knitting, sewing, painting. There wasn’t a project she would turn down, she was very creative. An avid fan of birds, she could spend hours looking out the window, it would warm her heart to see a cardinal, blue jay or hummingbird; meanwhile, Salvador would be tasked with chasing away the squirrels.

Ana is survived by her husband, Salvador; daughters, Claudia (Ricardo Rosas Ruiz), Verenice (Alejandro Rosas Flores), and Alejandrina “Nina” (Jesus Lopez Nuñez); grandchildren: Emiliano, Ricardo “Richie”, Alejandro “Janito”, Jesus “Walo”, Natalie “Naty”, and Ana Cecilia; by her siblings: Ruben, Lilia, Eugenio, Rodolfo, Pedro, Dolores, and Julio, and her siblings-in-law: Arturo, Irma, Socorro, Antonio, Guadalupe, and Carmen; and their respective families.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Ruben and Maria, her brother, Jose Luis; and her parents-in-law, Antonio Lanuza Marquez and Carmen Rosas Almanza; and her sister-in-law, Teresa.
