Those are all great choices, and many of those already listed are my favorites too. I will add two more with special meaning for where I live:
Venerable Mother Maria Luisa Josefa of the Blessed Sacrament, O.C.D., foundress of the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart, who currently serve here in Los Angeles and in Mexico, South America and the Philippines. She was forced to flee from Mexico during the Mexican Revolution, and she founded the Los Angeles Carmel in 1927. She died in 1937, and Pope St. John Paul II declared her Venerable in 2001.
Venerable Bishop Alphonse Gallegos, O.A.R., of Sacramento, who was born in New Mexico and raised in Los Angeles, where he was ordained and served among the most poor and needy. He was known as the “Bishop of the Barrios” and died in a car crash while returning from ministry in 1991. Pope Francis declared him Venerable in 2016.
