Luisa Jo Canez, 40, of Phoenix, passed away February 6, 2023 in her home.
Luisa, the daughter of David and Louella (Güerra) Canez, was born December 23, 1982 in Phoenix Arizona. Luisa was blessed with a large and loving family of six siblings, 17 nieces and nephews and 3 great nieces and nephews. On March 14, 2020 Luisa married her best friend and love of her life Ruben Garcia with their two boys, Ruben Robert Canez and Dominick Luis Garcia, present.
Luisa, or as her friends and family would call her, Big Red Cabrona, was known for being the life of the party. Her outgoing spirit and laugh brought smiles to everyone around her. She could turn any family get together into an all night dance party. She had a passion for dancing, just as she had a passion for her family. Luisa’s heart was bigger than her fiery red hair. Her intense love for her family and friends was unmatched. Luisa always had an innate ability to connect with people and she brought joy to so many lives. If you knew Luisa, you loved her. Even the shortest amount of time with her left a lasting imprint. Her energy was infectious and will continue to live on within those who loved her.
Luisa is survived by her husband, Ruben Garcia; her sons, Ruben Jr. and Dominick; her parents, David and Louella Canez; and her brothers and sisters, Tracy Reyes (Andrew Reyes), Kerry Medina (Edward Medina), David Canez (Sheena Canez), Eric Canez (Rozalin Aivas), Marilu Carbajal (Diego Carbajal) and Julietta Canez.
