Familia Jimenez, circa 1954


On Easter of 1954 the Jimenez family gathered for a photo in front of their home on the 1800 block of Allport St. in Pilsen. From left to right they are Rafaela (better known as Fafa), John, mother, Matilde and Regina (nicknamed Reggie). They lived in Pilsen for many years, where daughter Regina Bueno attended St. Pius. The family was very fond of the neighborhood.

Bueno remembers her mother who passed away in 2006 and her brother, John Jimenez who passed earlier this year at the age of 68.
