Moreno is married to Jesus Moreno with whom she has two daughters and a son; Margarita Humphries age 39, Barbara Lopez age 35 and Victor Moreno age 32. Moreno also has the joy of having five grandchildren Carlos Guido 17, Alyssa Humphries 8, Mike Humphries 6, Steve Lopez 15 and Marky Lopez 10. Moreno said, "Steve and Marky are Barbara's kids, they live in Rio Rico and Carlos, Alyssa and Mike are Margarita's kids, they live here in Douglas so it's a great joy to see them regularly." Moreno says even though she doesn't see Steve and Marky often they always show her how happy they are to see her when they visit Douglas.
Moreno has been married to Jesus Moreno for over 40 years. Moreno said, "He is still a very peaceful person, has always been a great father and a friend." "There is no better companion than him and I'm glad I didn't have any other partner." Moreno says her husband is very hardworking, he worked for Savala's Grocery, Food Lockers (meat storage) and for Phillip's Dodge store as meat cutter where he retired from after more than 30 years of rigorous work.
Since moving to Douglas Moreno has always been a homemaker and been very involved with helping take care of her grandchildren and her son Victor who is physically disabled. Moreno has struggled with the care of her son Victor who is now a calm and loving young man. Moreno says her son Victor suffered from meningitis at the age of 18 months and became physically and mentally disabled. Today Victor receives proper care, but doesn't require as much attention like the doctors had thought. Moreno said, "All Victor asks for is affection and love with one hug and a kiss from him I can reach heaven and touch it."
Moreno says she also has a good and close relationship with her daughters Margarita and Barbie, they try to stay close and keep in touch to support each other. Moreno said, "Margarita is shy and reserved, but kind; she works for the U.S. Customs Department here in Douglas." "Barbara is very talkative, outgoing and social than Margarita." Barbara owns and manages a rest home for the elderly in Nogales and cares a lot for her patients.
Moreno says she enjoys helping her daughters by taking care of their children. She is a loving but firm grandma who wants to make a positive impact on her grandkids. As a hobby and to escape from the daily routine and household chores Moreno sells Mary Kay beauty products, which allows her to interact with others. She likes to read daily and loves poetry and books by Isabel Agende a very popular Mexican writer.
Moreno describes herself as a very frank, honest person who likes to speak her mind. She considers herself a true genuine person, who is competitive towards the things she loves and cares about. Moreno loves elephants and has a great number of figurines, stuffed animals and décor.
She believes that if the elephant's trunks are up they bring good luck and she wants that to surround her. Moreno said, I am very proud of my grandkids and hope the best for them.
She expressed her life and her experiences with the following verse, "Life you owe me nothing, Life I don't owe you nothing, Life we are at peace."
