Emilia was born in Bryan, Texas. She was the daughter of Domingo and Rafaela Aguallo and was the oldest of 10 siblings. Emilia married the love of her life, Santiago Jurado, in 1954 and resided in Torrington. She was a proud, full-time house wife and mother while raising their seven children before moving to Gering in the early 1990s.
Over the course of her life, Emilia developed many interests, and developed a passion for her crocheting, knitting and cooking of her fabulous Mexican food. She was highly recognized by everyone for her fondness and skills in gardening and planting of her flowers. She especially enjoyed the outdoors and was very proud that her dad taught her how to fish and fillet. She always enjoyed fishing with her brothers and would always giggle and laugh when she would outdo her brothers when fishing and filleting fish.
Emilia was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, who enjoyed traveling with her husband, Santiago, and her children and family.
She leaves behind seven children, son Jesse (Sharon) Jurado of Alliance, daughter Ria (Terry) Scott of Scottsbluff, daughter Teresa (Rick) Scott of Cleveland, N.C., daughter Maria Jurado-Flynn of Atlanta, Ga., son Joe (Beth) Jurado of Denver, Colo., daughter Gloria (Anthony) Delgado of Denver, daughter Esther (Brad) Holliday of Billings, Mont., and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Santiago Jurado, and parents Domingo and Rafaela Aquallo and grandchild Michael Delgado.
The family would like to thank the Mitchell Care Center and Regional West Hospice for the wonderful care and support they provided for their mom.
