Matilde was born on August 10th, 1947, in Huaral, Peru.

They raised two children, Betty and Jose. They immigrated to the United States in 2001. Incredibly bright and dedicated, she was passionate about her studies, had impeccable work ethics and was a very accomplished professional. She reached top positions at El Pacifico-Peruano Suiza in Peru, reinvented her career once in the US at the Dallas Independent School District, and also became a Certified Public Accountant in the US. She was a dedicated wife, mother and grandmother. She was pivotal in her husband’s recovery after five brain surgeries, taking care of him, encouraging him and always believing in his full recovery. She passed on to her children the belief of reaching for the highest goals and to pursue all dreams. She cared for and pampered her grandchildren. She was a great sister, friend, and mentor. Extremely kind and generous, she helped many and left a true mark in countless lives. Mati was preceded in her death by her husband Lucho Piscoya and her parents Justo and Beatriz Vargas.
