"Coche" as she was also known as, was an avid Yankee fan and loved playing BINGO and enjoyed the simple things in life. She was one of 16 children and yet her greatest joy came from the company of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. The loving heart and love that she had for all of them will never be replaced. She will be greatly missed by everyone that loved and knew her.

She was predeceased by her son Luis Soto Sr. and eight of her siblings.
