Cuca Munoz

María "Cuca" Munoz-was born in La Union. She has always been very proud to be from La Union. For many years, she served on the La Union town council. She has been a lifelong member of Our Lady of Refuge and served as sacristan for many years. She also served as the caretaker of the La Union cemetery for many years. Her passion has always been the history of La Union and of the Enriquez family. Cuca could always tell anyone from La Union what family they came from and who they are related to. People would often come to see her just to ask her information about their family. Cuca always loved spending time in her garden. Thank you, Cuca, for being a wealth of knowledge and for all your contributions to La Union. Congratulations!
