Our beloved daughter and sister, Starla Rochelle Robledo 22, of Sunnyside, who was born April 6, 1989 passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, March 17, 2012, surrounded by her family.

Starla was being held in her mother's arms, and holding hands with her father as she earned her angel wings and became the brightest star shining.

Starla had such a big heart and shared it with all her family and friends.

Starla had many hobbies including shopping, scrapbooking, texting, hanging out with her friends and watching movies at home with her mom on Saturday nights.

She enjoyed going to the beach with her family, beachcombing or just going for long walks.

The last 10 years Starla had fought her battle with cancer, and she was never willing to give up. She was always looking on the positive side of every new treatment that came along.

When Starla was feeling good, she was always taking her lil' puppy Buttercup on walks.

Starla is survived by her mother, Nora J. Nunez; her father, Teodoro (Ted) (Shana) Robledo; her brothers, Dylan Robledo and Matt Baddley; her grandmothers, Nahuma M. Galindo and Maria Robledo; many aunts, uncles and cousins; and her best friends, Ashley and Rene Heilman and Kelsee Thomas.

Starla was preceded in death by her grandfathers, Pedro E. Nunez and Reyes B. Robledo
