She was preceded in death by her mother, Mary Landeros and her father Felix Landeros.
Lydia was born on November 29, 1966 in Woodland, California to Mary Landeros and Felix Landeros. She grew up in Davis and graduated from Davis Senior High School in 1984. Lydia moved to Winters in 2000. She and her wife enjoyed 22 wonderful years together.
Lydia was a service writer at Johnny’s Service Center in Davis California for many years and greatly enjoyed working with people and the unique individuals who made up the Johnny’s family. Her knowledge and expertise when it came to cars was well-known. In 2008 when her son, Chase was born she left Johnny’s to begin her most important job of all, mom to her children. Her daughter, Judy was born in 2014.
Lydia was a charismatic, fun-loving and generous soul. And her keen sense of humor and ability to make people laugh was legendary. The laughter and joy she brought when she told one of her stories or made a joke was a true gift. The world is a lesser place without her. She generously opened her heart and her home to family and friends in hard times and offered love and support to those in need. She was a profoundly generous human being; awesome mom to her kids; loving friend and a loving and devoted spouse to her wife, Peggy. Lydia was devoted to her family and was a wonderful, sister, aunt, cousin, and sister-in-law. Lydia was also involved in sports with her son, Chase and encouraged him to play all the sports; soccer, basketball, baseball, kajukenbo and swimming. She loved watching him compete and encouraged him to do his best and have fun. Lydia was just beginning that journey with Judy with t-ball, dance classes and swim lessons. One of Lydia’s greatest joys was to see her children enjoying sports - she was their number 1 cheerleader. Lydia was also a huge Seattle Seahawks fan so – Go HAWKS!
A celebration of her life is scheduled for August 5, 2:00 PM at the Winters Community Center. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Lydia's life. If you have Seahawks gear please wear it proudly.
