Margarita Romo passed away peacefully at home in the presence of her loving family on November 14, 2023. She was the loving matriarch of her immediate family and held a deep affection for her extended family.
She is survived by her children, Eloise (Salvador) Lozano, Jesus (Gloria), Raquel (Rafael) Fuentes, Eliseo (Diana), Rafael (Katie), Grace (Joe) Ruiz, Gabriel (Theresa), Margarita, Lolo, Michael, Stella (Bob) Donohue; 45 grandchildren; 99 great-grandchildren; 20 great-great-grandchildren (and two on the way); siblings, Maria (Tomas) Silva, Martina Mendez, Felix Lozano, Conrado (Carmen).
She was preceded in death by her husbands, Jesus Romo, Ysmael Hernandez; siblings, Estefana Montantes, Silvestra Moreno, Juanita Moreno, Salvador Lozano, Teodoro Lozano, Connie Garcia; two children, Arturo and Lupita; two grandchildren, Gabriela and Alonzo.
Born on February 15, 1931, Margarita was a woman of faith, immense strength, and compassion. She embraced the challenges of raising a large family with grace and determination, dedicating herself to the well-being of her 13 children. Her love knew no bounds, extending to 45 grandchildren, 99 great-grandchildren, and 20 great-great-grandchildren. Margarita was a keeper of Mexican cultural traditions, carrying them forward with pride and instilling them in the hearts of her family. Margarita's home was a sanctuary of warmth and laughter, where she made every celebration special. Her sense of humor brought joy to those around her, and her humility endeared her to all who were fortunate enough to share in her company.
In her professional life, Margarita served as a social worker and pastoral minister, by extending a helping hand to those facing challenges. Her work brought solace to many, and her commitment to uplifting others spiritually and emotionally defined her character. As a Guadalupana member, Margarita dedicated herself to the service of Our Lady of Guadalupe and community.
Margarita's life was a living testament to the values she held dear – family, faith, and generosity. As we say our goodbyes, let us cherish the memories of her laughter, the warmth of her love, and her strength. In honoring her legacy, may we find inspiration in her faith, her commitment to helping others, and her dedication to family. Margarita Romo's spirit will forever dance in the hearts of those who were touched by her, and her memory will be a guiding light for generations to come.
