Her colleagues remember this passion, matched only by her generosity as she would happily lend a hand to any teammate in need.
"We grieve alongside Chona's husband Eugene, her parents, her brothers and all those of us who cherished her. We will never forget Chona as we continue her work toward a California for All."
