Angelica Rios, 30, died Friday morning. She was born on January 23, 1989, daughter of Salvador and Antonia (nee: Bueno) Rios.
Angelica was employed as a C.N.A. with Ascension All Saints and worked with Racine Unified at Dr. Jones Elementary School as an Office Clerk. Angelica will be best remembered for her love of God and always helping other people. She was a single mother that dedicated her life raising her loving children. She loved all of her patients dearly and really cared for them. She also loved her role as a clerk at Racine Unified. Angelica loved to sing and dance and was the life of the party, most of all she loved to laugh and be surrounded by her family and friends. Angelica lived by the quote “Live today like it was your last because tomorrow is never promised!”
