Lea's fater was Heriberto Castaņeda Saavedra who passed away while she was very young. Her mother, Felicitas Peņa Guzman inherited a small farm near Quivilla.

Lea was born in her mother's home in the country near Quivilla in Huanuco Province, Peru. She grew up in the rural atmosphere of her mother's small farm and always loved animals and plants.
Her mother, a widow, raised Lea and her two brothers Ruben and Eleazar. She had to go to high school in the Provincial Capital, Huanuco, because there was no school in Quivilla.
Both brothers went to the country's capital, Lima, to work and Lea later followed them. There she met Jim and eventually they were married.
They have three children, Jonathan, Perry and Rubyli and seven grandchildren, all of whom live in the USA.
Eleazar immigrated with his family to the US. Ruben lived in Lima and made traditional Peruvian bronze mirrors. He passed away in 2021.

Lea and Jim have been married for over 45 years. Lea insisted on getting married on Friday, June 13, 1975 which was also her birthday.  Since then Lea and Jim celebrate each 13th day of the month as their favorite day and each Friday the 13th as a special anniversary. 

This website has been prepared by Lea's husband with all his love.
