In memory of
Trini Marrufo Higlesias
Trini Marrufo Higlesias May 25, 1925 - Feb 8, 2017 Trini Marrufo Higlesias, 91 of Turlock, California, passed on Wednesday, February 8th, 2017. Trini was born on May 25, 1925 to Manuel and Felipa Marrufo in Victorville, California and is just one of six children. She moved to Salinas, California where she raised her family, was President of the PTA and was in the Salinas Valley Boat Club.  Trini was a retired supervisor from the Mann Packing Company for over 25 years.  Trini loved her Lord and Savior and was part of the Ecumenical movement. Trini was ahead of her time in more ways than one. She was a trendsetter, an innovator, a fashionista, an avid traveler but most of all she was a friend to all.  Trini loved to cook for her family, they were always amazed by her homemade tortillas, menudo or chicken mole. She was a lover of all kinds of music, but really liked the kind you can dance to.  One thing you could always see Trini doing is playing rummy with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and somehow managed to win every game by changing the rules as they played. She is survived by her children Danny (Tina), Erma (Ruben), Victor (Lydia), Alan and Mona, 15 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren and four great great-grandchildren along with her beloved partner in life "Cookie" her dog. Trini is preceded in death by her husband of many years, Mateo Higlesias, her parents Manuel and Felipa Marrufo, her daughter Vivian, son Eddie along with three sisters and two brothers. A visitation will be held at 9 a.m. on Thurs., Feb. 16 with a Funeral Service to follow at 11:30 a.m. at Turlock Funeral Home, 425 N. Soderquist Road, Turlock CA.
