Eduviges “Duvi” Guadalupe Preciado Wolf was born on February 12, 1985 in Cocula, Jalisco, Mexico to Miguel and Ana Maria Preciado. Her parents named her after Saint Eduviges. Saint Eduviges was known for her generosity, bestowing all that she could give to the sick, feeble, the impoverished and the imprisoned. Duvi shared many of these bountiful traits, also.
In the late 1980's Duvi's parents and family moved to California, so the girls could have more opportunities. The family lived in Gardena, Lawndale, and Hawthorne CA. Duvi attended Chapman Elementary, Hawthorne Intermediate, and Leuzinger High School. When she was fifteen, she joined the Hawthorne Police Explorer Program and excelled to the rank of lieutenant. While attending Leuzinger High School she joined J.R.O.T.C. and was Battalion XO, second in command.
After graduation in 2003, Duvi joined the US Army in November. She always worked hard to achieve her goals. She was very proud of achieving the rank of Sergeant in the US Army.
In 2004, Duvi met Joshua Wolf while stationed in Fort Bragg, NC. On October 19, 2005, they were married in Fayetteville, NC. Into this union two beautiful little girls were born, Isabel, age three and Valeri, age one. Duvi and Josh made each other sparkle; people just enjoyed being with them because you could feel their deep love for each other.
She died on October 25, 2009 when her vehicle was ambushed while on convoy in Afghanistan. Duvi is survived by her husband Josh; two daughters: Isabel and Valeri; her parents, Miguel and Ana Maria, her three sisters Mary, Ana, and Cecilia and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
