She was a kind and gentle soul, always sharing a smile or a laugh with everyone she met, she knew no strangers. Her sense of humor, faith in God, and love for life were a testament to her great character and she will be sorely missed by many. There was no one who was not a friend, she loved people genuinely.

Dre is survived by her only beloved son Larry (Gabby) Trujillo and her cherished grandchildren, Siara, Yesenia, Andres and Aaliyah; and her siblings Ramona Dordan, Frank Trujillo (Janet), Bernadette Mcleod (Sam) , Mike Trujillo (Connie) and JR (Joe) Trujillo ; her fiancé Carlos Gonzales and also many cherished nieces, nephews and great nieces, great nephews and many cousins.
