HONORING TERESA REYNOSO DE GONZALEZ
HON. J. LUIS CORREA
in the house of representatives
Tuesday, July 11, 2017
Mr. CORREA. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor a special person in my
district, Teresa Reynoso de Gonzalez.
Mrs. Reynoso de Gonzalez and her family have contributed enormously
to our community through their efforts in founding and expanding the
Northgate Gonzalez markets in California. This month, Mrs. Reynoso de
Gonzalez celebrates her 90th birthday.
Mrs. Reynoso de Gonzalez was born in Jalostotitlan, Jalisco Mexico on
July 2, 1927 and emigrated to the United States in 1976, where she has
served as a loving figure and role model to our community as the co-
owner of Northgate Market.
Her leadership of Northgate Market has allowed her family to serve
the larger Latino population of Southern California, providing
affordable and quality foods and services at over thirty locations and
offering a taste of home for the many families that visit Northgate
Market with Latino products, culture, and language.
Mrs. Reynoso de Gonzalez and her family's philanthropic efforts
extend even further through the Gonzalez Reynoso Family Foundation,
which supports neighborhood schools, sports teams, and other events.
They have also been instrumental in uplifting the hard-working
immigrant community and fostering invaluable memories, such as
organizing Christmas gifts for children and hosting reunion meals for
I want to thank Mrs. Reynoso de Gonzalez for the love she has offered
so freely. Today, I join my district in recognizing the impact Mrs.
Reynoso de Gonzalez has made on the lives she has touched, and wish her
a very happy and blessed 90th birthday.
