Laura Caetano Barrett, 92, entered into rest on Oct. 16, 2019. Laura was the third of five
daughters born to the late Frank and Anna Caetano. She is preceded in death by her first
husband, July Delgado, her second husband, Edwin Barrett, her daughter Jeannette Silva and
her sisters Margaret Spangenberg, Mary Gillig and Jean Nobles.
Laura is survived by her children Gilbert Delgado (Linda) and Jeff Delgado (Tammy), her five
grandchildren Karyn Kildahl, Nick Delgado, Nicole Delgado, Brett Delgado and Reianna Delgado,
and her sister Leonore Sanchez.
Laura worked as a cook at Logan High School, in Union City and then went on to work in an
electronics lab at National Semiconductor in Santa Clara until she retired. Laura loved to travel
and went on memorable adventures, but she was happiest when spending time with family and
friends at home. She looked forward to holidays and gatherings sponsored by her local
neighborhood of retirees. Laura had a feisty sense of humor, a generous heart, a pride in her
Portuguese heritage, and a no-nonsense approach to life. She will be missed immensely.
