Beatriz Soto Miranda, lovingly known as “Peaches,” age 90, ascended into heaven on October 29, 2020. Beatriz was born in San Ignacio, Jalisco, Mexico, July 29,1930, to parents Jose Guadalupe Soto and Maria de Los Angeles Rodriguez. She married Mateo Miranda on June 4, 1947 in Jalisco. They immigrated to the United States with their older children in 1956, settling in the Scottsbluff, NE, area in 1962, where they raised their family.

Beatriz was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She especially had an affinity for babies. She was known for her storytelling, her love of jokes, singing, and dancing. She was known for her beautiful needlework and crocheting and her traditional Mexican cooking. She never let anyone go hungry, weaving jokes and histories between filling their plates. Beatriz was a lover of animals and cared for many pet birds and dogs throughout her lifetime. Her love of nature led her to cultivate many plants in her home and garden. Because of her extensive knowledge of traditional medicinal plants, she was featured in the University of Nebraska, Nuestros Tesoros: A Celebration of Nebraska’s Mexican Heritage, recognizing her as a tradition bearer of Mexican heritage in the state. Beatriz also kept a book of her own, her Libro de Chistes, where she collected her favorite jokes and would bring it out to entertain her guests. A devout Catholic, she collected Mexican religious items. Beatriz was the center of a constellation of love, family, animals, food, and music, often saying, “Diosito es tan bueno conmigo. Ahi que disfrutar la vida.”

She is preceded in death by her husband, Mateo Miranda; daughter, Patricia, parents, great grandchildren Jesus Segura and Reigna Avila, and four siblings. She is survived by her sister Natalia, nine children, Angie (Ambrose) Avila, Hank Miranda, Myrna Olds, Hope (Jack) Acevedo, Elena Miranda (Federico) Torres, Margarita Miranda, Carmen (David) Segura, Corina Miranda, and Miguel (Sally) Miranda, 21 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren.

It always made my day Seeing Beatriz with one or more of her children at Husker softball games. They would always be cutting up and laughing. She seemed to always bring a smile to those she touched. I know that whenever I hear thunder in the future it will be from God laughing at all of the jokes that she is telling in Heaven. :)

I had the pleasure to know Mr and Mrs Miranda. They always welcomed me into their home and made me feel like family. Mrs Miranda always referred to me as hijo and would tell me jokes and about her family and her life. I always felt so comfortable around her. I even had the honor of dancing with her at one of the last birthday parties her family had for her. I felt lots of love for her and from her. I will always have those memories of her and her family. She is now with our Lord and Savior. God bless all the family! Jose
