Guadalupe (Lupe) Flores, 94 passed away Sunday, September 3, 2017. She was born December 12, 1922 in Sanderson, Texas and moved to Salinas in 1954 with her husband and three children.
She worked at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital for years as a Nurse’s Aide. While working, she studied for her Licensed Vocational Nurse License and traveled to Sacramento to take the test and ultimately pass. She then worked as Office Nurse for Drs. Matthew P. McGuire, Thomas O’Neill, and Gerald Griffin, and Family Health Resources.
Years ago, Lupe was an active member of St. Mary of the Nativity Church. She was twice President of the Altar Society, was a Eucharistic Minister, Lector, and worked as a volunteer with the programs for food for the poor for ten years until the program was discontinued. This program was funded by a monthly breakfast held by the Altar Society at the church hall. She was a member of Young Ladies’ Institute (YLI) of St. Ignatius. When Pope John Paul II came to Laguna Seca in 1987, she was very proud to be one of many Eucharistic Members serving Communion. Thereafter, she has been a member of Madonna del Sasso Parish.
For more than 76 years she was married to her husband, Joe, who survives her, their two sons, Danny (Lisa) of Morgan Hill, CA, and Jim (Susie) of Firestone, CO, their daughter, Cindy (Angelo) Cagnacci, of Salinas, five grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her one brother, Raymond, and surviving sisters Natalia Calzada, of Sanderson, Texas, and Nellie Golden, of Stark, LA.
A Funeral Mass will be held on Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 10:00 am., at Madonna Del Sasso Church, 320 E. Laurel Drive, Salinas, CA. 93906, with burial at Queen of Heaven Cemetery later in the afternoon.
