El Modena: Need basic information...a city? neighborhood?

Is El Modena a district in Orange? A neighborhood?

One of my ancestors has listed "El Modema" California as her place of residence in 1924 on a birth certificate, although, since her grandmother died in "El Modena" just two years later, I assumed it was a typo.

I really don't know anything about this area, and I had a rough time finding it on any map, but I eventually did. Was it ever its own city, later swallowed up by Orange? Or was it simply a section of town?

If some kind sould out there could check my assumptions and let me know if I'm close, I'd appreciate it.
