For more than 50 years Jovita Marquez has lived in the cozy home that she and her family shared in Barrio Logan.  Her husband died young and she raised seven children on her own, a testament to her love of family and strong work ethic.  At a spritely 93, this home is where she plans to stay.   Her small living room is filled with many family photographs and special mementos that have been a part of her life for decades, each holding a special place in her heart.  She is especially proud of her beautiful wedding photo hanging in a place of honor. 

Jovita looks forward to seeing our volunteers each day.  “I like the food: especially the soup!”  She moves slowly using her cane, so preparing her own meals really isn’t an option.  Her daughter, Irma is appreciative to have our volunteers stop by, deliver the meal and take a few minutes to visit. Most nice days you can find Jovita sitting in her front yard with a welcoming smile waiting for the volunteers to arrive.  She especially looks forward to our military men and women who deliver. With a big grin, she announces, “I always salute them.”
