Gabriella Verdugo

Obituary of Gabriella Krystal Verdugo

Gabriella Krystal Verdugo was born October 3rd, 1990, to Patty and Ruben Verdugo. She danced to heavens gates on November 25th, 2023. Not only a daughter, but Gabby was a sister to her brother’s Ruben Angel and Kevin Julius. A mother to Julius Angel, Juliana Reign and Joseph Ezekiel, and a partner to Joseph Quihuis. Granddaughter to Ricardo Castillo Sr and Paula (Polly) Castillo and preceded in death by grandparents Jose Verdugo and Margarita Yocupicio.

While it’s tragic to think about Gabby leaving us too soon, she left behind a lifetime of memories that we can celebrate. In her early years she attended Kyrene de Los Niño's where she received a scholarship “Quest for Kids” for good grades. She continued through Kyrene Middle School and graduated from Marcos de Niza high school class of 2009, meeting many friends along the way. Gabby was the life of the party and always down for a fun time.

Daughter, granddaughter, tia, niece, cousin, sister-in-law, she loved all her family and would do anything for them. Like she said, “It's not what I have in life, but who I have that counts”.

Being a mom was her EVERYTHING. She provided, taught, nurtured, and loved her children.

Her departure has left an irreplaceable void, yet her spirit, her laughter, and her memories will continue to surround us.
