Blanca T Magana

d. December 2, 2023

Blanca Torres Magana, 84, a Milwaukee resident since the late 1950’s passed away on December 2, 2023. 

Born in McAllen, Texas and migrated to Detroit Michigan in 1954. She was the daughter of the late Atanacia García Torres and Diego Emilio Torres. 

Blanca was a strong activist for Latino rights and very involved in and with the community. Prior to retiring from SDC (Social Development Commission) Blanca ran the energy assistance program, food pantries, meal programs and other resources for the community. Blanca will be remembered as a happy person with sass, always dressed in sparkles and heels with a fancy purse, who enjoyed dancing to Latin music and shopping at the segunda. Blanca was a member of the UCC Senior Center and enjoyed her time there, but more importantly she enjoyed spending time with her grandkids and family. 

Blanca is survived by siblings: Diego (Margret) Torres, Gloria (Jose) Ruiz, Roel (Susan) Torres. Children: Roel (Karrina)Torres, Theresa (Rafael) Chaidez and grandchildren: Roel Jr (Jana) Torres, Miguel Torres, Rafael, Royal and Reina-AnaStacia Chaidez.  

Blanca will be truly missed but will always be remembered as a kind and loving mother, grandmother and friend to many.

A visitation will be on Friday December 15, 2023 at 1pm until time of service at 2:30pm at Witkowiak Funeral Home, 529 West Historic Mitchell Street, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
