Lupita was a beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend who was full of compassion, humor, grace and beauty. She cared more for others than for herself and brought joy, kindness and love everywhere she went. She touched so many lives and created unforgettable memories with her children, grandchildren, family and friends. Lupita loved to draw and listen to music. She was quite the entertainer, always joking around and having a great time. Her laughter was her trademark.
We would like to thank the EMT’s, doctors and nurses at Holy Cross Hospital and Christus St. Vincent Regional Center for the great care Lupita received before she gained her angel wings. A special thank you to her niece, Claudette Romero, who persevered to fulfill Lupita’s wishes and providing her with the best postmortem care.
