Gone to soon, Miriam was called home to our Lord and Savior on November 4, 2020.
Miriam, more affectionately known as Boo, was born in Montebello, Ca. on February 11, 1987 to Mary & Archie Guerrero. Boo was a welcomed addition to the family, the baby sister to brothers David and Paul ‘Wally’ and sister Stephanie. At the end of 1990 the Guerrero family moved to Tucson, Arizona. Though it was difficult for them to leave their family behind in California, a new life awaited them in Arizona. When old enough, Boo went to Lulu Walker Elementary and met her oldest friends there. She went on to attend La Cima Middle School and Amphi High School. Her friends would all agree that she was funny & fearless.
As an adult, she explored many different interests, forming new friendships, and her most close relationship with God. Boo frequently took the time to share what she learned from the Bible and at church with others. She carried a Bible with her, brought friends and others she loved to church with her so they could feel and know the Truth about how much God loves us. Boo was marveled at that kind of love and acceptance from the Lord and wanted to be sure everyone else knew the same.
Miriam’s next venture was into motherhood, and she was blessed with three beautiful children, Nehemiah Paul Guerrero, Niyannah Faith Guerrero and Nathaniel Mark Ochoa. She was so proud of her babies, and only wanted the very best possible lives for them. Near or far, she loved them all and carried each of them in her heart always.
Boo had a genuine love for music, whether it was worship music, R&B, Christian rap – it spoke to her and helped her through difficult times. She loved funny movies and TV shows, something her and her brother Wally shared an interest in. She was a great help in the kitchen, cooking alongside her mom. She became interested in fitness and eating healthy, sharing many walks & talks with her sister Steph and her nephews. She enjoyed spending time with her brother David and had many late-night talks with him about anything and everything. Boo was the baby of the family, and was also the best gift to her dad, since she was born on his birthday. They shared many similarities, and were more alike than either of them will admit.
Boo formed relationships with many people in her life, she had a closeness with them and the void of not having her here is felt by many. All sharing many fond and fun memories with her. She leaves behind an army of cousins, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces and friends, all of whom loved her.
Our family is not the same without her, she was funny, she was smart, she had style, she was beautiful, she was caring, she was strong, she was honest, she was fearless – she was our Boo. We will miss hearing her voice, laughter, tears and joy. We love you Miriam and we will never stop loving you.
