Lupita was a loving person who was very involved with Sacred Heart Catholic Church. She was a Eucharistic minister and was in charge of social events. She taught bible classes, RICA program and did volunteer work at the Judge Homer Salinas boot camp. She dedicated her time to helping others by visiting the sick, going to the hospitals and nursing homes. She also loved to share her Love of God. She was driven by her faith and opened many people's hearts up to the gospel of God. She would even open her home up to anyone who needed a place to stay. She was very brave and selfless, never making her problems known to those around her, even when she had cancer. She lit up the room when she walked in, she never failed to smile and she gave the best hugs. She fought for the things she was passionate about and spoke up for those who didn't have a voice to be heard. The family would like to give a special "Thank You" to A Healing Touch Hospice, Raul Carrillo and Araceli Solis. They would also like to express their gratitude to Angelica Flores and Maricruz Betancourt for the care they gave their mom in the last 6 years of her life. She will be greatly missed by her family, friends and all those whose lives she touched. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7
