She was proceeded in death by her father, Rodolfo Peña, her mother, Leonor Leiva de Peña, her sisters, Cony Peña de Philpot, Daysa Peña de Villa, her brother, Adolfo Peña Laiva, her niece, Donna Philpot Peña, and nephew, Ivan Villa Peña. She is survived by her loving husband, Manual Urbina Mejia, her loving sister, Alba Peña de Solis, her loving children, Kenneth Torres Peña, Roger Torres Peña, Belisa del Carmen Torres de Barreto, Walter Torres Peña, Sandra Torres Watsky, and Lena Urbina Dyess, her fourteen devoted grandchildren, Roger Torres, Melanie Torres de De Ojeda, Belisa Eugenia, Leonte Berreto, Norma Seguin, Jose Delgado, Walter Torres Jr., Melissa Torres, Carl Torres, Sophia Torres, Ian Watsky, Lenna Dyess, Allen Dyess, and Brianna Dyess, and many beloved great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and great-great-nieces and nephews, some of whom affectionately call her "Tita" and "Abuelita". Born June 30, 1933, in Managua, Nicaragua: Central America, Leonor graduated from La Asucion Catholic High School. Leonor married Manuel Urbina, her husband of 49 years, who, along with others, stayed right next to her until Jesus called her home. Leonor was a devout Catholic who loved her faith and practiced it by reciting prayers, saying the Rosary daily, and celebrating the Immaculate Conception Novena (La Purisma) annually for over fifty years. Leonor loved her time together with her family and treasured when everyone would get together. She walked through life with a tender smile on her face. Her innocence, honesty, and purity made those who met her fall in love with her immediately. She was never in a bad mood and never had anything negative to say. She had a passion for boxing, baseball, casinos, knick knacks, and loved the color purple. Through her love and prayers, she was the glue and the magnet that kept the family close and was an inspiration for all.
