BIOGRAPHY

Ana María González Sánchez was born in Medina-Sidonia, Andalusia, Spain, on 31 January 1914, to parents Leonardo González and Juana Sánchez. She was the eldest of five sisters. After her father’s early death, she became a draughtsman at the San Carlos Factory and later worked at the Seville Electricity Company.

González Sánchez married at 26, in 1940. Her husband, José Manuel Silva López, was a well-known craftsman and painter in San Fernando, and after his death in 2000, a street was named in his honor. For much of their 60-year marriage, they lived on Calle San Cristóbal. After her daughter Mari Pepa was widowed in 2002, Ana moved in with her. Later, her other daughter, also widowed, joined them. The three lived together, supporting each other in their later years. She was known by her relatives as “Yeya Ana”.

In mid-2022, she experienced a physical decline and was hospitalized for a month due to Covid. Although she recovered against the odds, she noticed a decrease in her mobility. Prior to contracting the virus, she used to go for walks down the street regularly, always accompanied. She even went out to vote in 2022. As a person with very strong religious convictions, she continued to pray the rosary and the Angelus every day, even at 110. She also received communion daily.

Ana María González Sánchez passed away in San Fernando, Cádiz, Andalusia, Spain, on 28 February 2024 on Andalusia Day, at the age of 110. Her health unexpectedly declined, and she died at Viamed Hospital in Chiclana. She is survived by her two daughters, five grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren.
