On September 9, 2019 in the early evening beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend Margarita (Mague) Moncayo Salazar passed away at her home in El Paso, TX, surrounded by her family. She was born February 22, 1946 to Felix and Severa Moncayo in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Before her battle with cancer she was a very athletic and lively person, always the life of the party, and loved being surrounded by family and friends. In her younger years she was a very accomplished basketball player, playing all around Mexico and winning awards for her athleticism. Among her many other accomplishments she married the love of her life in 1986 and lived happily with their two children, and later grandchildren. Before succumbing to cancer, Mague was able to live out her days surrounded by loved ones. Twenty-seven years ago, to the day her sister Angela Fierro passed from her battle with cancer, and it is believed that Mague passed peacefully with her guardian angel nearby.
