Guadalupe was a member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church and also attended Our Lady of Guadalupe of Lathrop. Before moving to Manteca Guadalupe made her home in Oakland with her husband and children for over 50 years. She enjoyed traveling and visiting local casinos. Her hobbies included garage-sales, visiting flea markets and shopping in general. Guadalupe was extremely proud about how she enjoyed jet skiing at the young age of 70 years old. She was an amazing cook and was known to her family for her famous homemade tortillas, refried beans, salsa, and her Thanksgiving turkey and stuffing. Guadalupe was at her happiest when helping others. Her heart was content when she gave all that she could to anyone who was in need. She will be remembered for her sweet spirit and her good heart. She will be missed.
