She was born in Cardeñadijo (Burgos), Spain in 1922 and was one of eight children to Teodoro and Mariana Mansilla Palacios. She had a great faith, a loving heart, and courage that took her across oceans. She worked for the Burgos city government before immigrating to this county followed with Christian Brothers University and enjoyed participating in many volunteer organizations.
