Jessica Ann Marie Bocanegra (Trueblood)
“Anukasan Iyoyanpa Win”
March 1, 1983 – March 10, 2023
Jessica, 40, of Rapid City, SD made her spiritual journey on March 10, 2023, surrounded by family at home. Jessica was born on March 1, 1983 in Pine Ridge, SD to Thelma Siers-Trueblood and Robert Trueblood Sr.
When Jessica was six months old, her mother and siblings moved to Rapid City, SD. She attended elementary school at Knollwood and attended North Jr High for her middle school years. Jessica went to Central High School for a short time then went off to attend Box Elder Job Corp in Nemo, SD. While attending Job Corp she met the love of her life, Lawrence Richard Bocanegra Jr., who she later married on June 26, 2010. They resided in Thornton, Colorado for many years. In 2004, Jessica gave birth to her pride and joy, Lorenco Ricardo Bocanegra. She was a dedicated and loving mother. To say that Lorenco was her whole world is an understatement, he truly was the light of her life and she was so proud of the man he has become. Lorenco is a loyal, respectful and honorable young man. He never left his mother’s side and supported her until the end.
