Henrietta Dominguez

February 25, 1931 ~ May 25, 2018 (age 87)

Henrietta Dominguez passed away on May 25th after battling illness for over a year.   She was born in Chino, California.  Her father, Armando Dominguez, was a physician and a businessman in the City of Chino.  Her mother, Constancia Yorba de Peralta, was the daughter of Betzaida Yorba--daughter of Raymundo Yorba, builder of the Yorba Adobe in the City of Chino.

The family patriarch, Jose Antonio Yorba, arrived in California from Spain aboard the San Carlos, a small Spanish galleon in 1769.  Yorba and a handful of other Spanish soldiers navigated the vessel and survived the journey with Fr. Serra, the builder of the California Missions.

In 1949 Henrietta graduated from Chino High School where she was majorette.  She went on in later years to attend Sawyer Business College and Cal Poly, Pomona.  An avid baker and a devoted Catholic, Henrietta was cared for during the last years of her life by her sisters Grace Lopez and Frances Prieto.  Henrietta was employed in a number of jobs in the Chino area including Blocks Department Store, Herb’s Hardware, Mills Furniture, Mary Carter Paint Company, and Ralphs Bakery.  She is survived by her three sisters, Grace Lopez of Chino, Rosie Estrella of Montclair, Frances Prieto of Chino Hills, and over 100 other extended family members who will miss the many cakes and fond memories of growing up in the care of their beloved “Aunt Keta.”
