Colleagues are raising funds for child of Mara Fernandez-Schutlz, who passed away recently

By Guadalupe Jaime
Monterey Superior Court Interpreter

SALINAS (Aug. 22, 2016) _ On July 31, 2016, 8-year-old Gabriel Blanco woke up next to his momma and was not able to wake her up. He was sleeping in the same bed with her, as he usually did, whenever his dad was away for work. Mara Fernandez-Schultz had passed away in her sleep that night, at the age of 37. 

Mara was a very loving and devoted mother who was filled with hopes and dreams for her bright, beautiful little boy. She and Gabriel had never been apart, aside from work and school. Now he is faced with having to grow up without her loving care and support.
