Ruth Castañeda Flores

Ruth De Lujan Castaneda Flores, age 3 months, of Avondale, Pennsylvania, passed away on May 24, 2024, at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in Philadelphia, PA.  Born in West Chester, PA, she was the daughter of Saul Sanchez Cortes and Yolanda Castaneda Flores. 

Ruth's life was short, but she left us a great lesson. She fought for her life every day since she was in her mother's womb and when she was born she continued fighting like a champion. She was too perfect for this world that God wanted to take her to his side. She will remain in our hearts forever. We will miss her but, we know that one day we will see her again in heaven, little Lujancita.

In addition to her parents, she is survived by her sisters, Ayxa and Kendra; and her twin brother, Adonai; her grandparents, Pastor Castaneda and Gloria Flores; and her aunts, Maria Castaneda Flores, Delia Castaneda Flores, and Monica Castaneda Flores; her cousins Mateo and Génesis
