Alicia “queen B” Moreno of Fox Lake, Illinois, formerly of Little Village in Chicago, paraded on earth for 91years, 5 months,15 days, 14 hours before leaving peacefully from her home to climb the rainbow bridge to heaven on 29 October 2022. She was born on 13 May 1931 in Kenedy, Texas. She was raised a Catholic and became an observant one.
Born and bred in rural South Texas, the queen B learned the value of manual, hard work, and being resourceful.
queen B pretty much did what she wanted, if she was mistreated or didn't like her situation the words "SOB" slowly slithered out. queen B was unafraid of change, death or dying. The queen B, as she later became known as, lived by the motto "el muerto al poso y el vivo al negocio" ("the dead to the well and the living to the business").
queen B loved dancing to Tex-Mex music-polkas and liked soul music from James Brown and disco music from the BeeGees, and Freddie Mercury's Another One Bites the Dust. queen B liked eating jalapeño burgers from Whitecastle and loved 1-2 day old tamales roasted ala Moreno (roasted charred on a griddle). queen B was addicted to shopping at thrift stores and purchased anything and everything with a clown theme. She was an avid animal lover always surrounded by k-9s and felines alike—with her last pet, a calico feline "ramboElla", already waiting for the queen B 37 days at the foot of rainbow bridge.
queen B's nuclear family preceded her in eternal sleep: her mother and father, Maximiliana and Mariano Luna; her brother, Joe Luna, Sr.; and two sisters, Anita G. Luna and Gregoria Diaz.
queen B is survived by her only son, A.L. Moreno, II; five daughters, Yolanda, Yumaida, Neraida, Eridania, and Theresa; and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
My Lord, with all the Angels and Saints we ask that we may hold dear the memory of our queen B, never bitter for what we have lost, nor in regret for the past, but always in hope, and in Spirit, where You will bring us together again.
