Analuisa had worked at Home Depot and was currently working at The Cotton Patch. Analuisa’s hobbies were going to the Frat House and playing Volleyball. She made friends everywhere she went and was always a ray of sunshine.
Analuisa was an animal loving person; she had her puppy “Nala” who she convinced her cousin to drive her over 10 hours to ger her. She loved her so much, and she lived with her in Portales, New Mexico.
In her childhood she was an amazing athlete, she loved to run, and became an amazing boxer where she took State and made Regionals. When she would box her eyes would get so big it was go time for her.
Analuisa loved to travel; her parents would take her everywhere for boxing. That included one year when she went to Regionals in California, they left early to go to Disneyland. Her and her sister would go repeatedly on rides to scare other passengers. Recently she had gone to Santa Fe and Denver following her favorite band The Wallows.
Everywhere she went she could not forget her makeup, especially her eyelashes. One time she fell asleep, and her eyelashes were half on and was wondering why her dad was laughing at her.
Analuisa loved her nephew so much. She raised him as her own and even proceeded to call herself the baby’s dad because she cut the umbilical cord. She would always try and convince her sister that she could take him to college with her. She gave him a nickname of “Chicken Nugget” and that was her new Best Friend.
Analuisa had a little brother Luis, and she would come and get him on weekends to spend time with him. She was a family person, and she was so easy to talk too and love.
