Obituary

Lupe Garcia Gallegos, 88 years of Salinas Ca. passed away peacefully November 5th 2019 surrounded by her loving family, due to a brief illness. She was born May 14th 1931 in Boise, Idaho. She was raised in Gonzales Ca. and lived there for many years before moving to Salinas.

She was preceded in death by her parents Frank and Ramona Garcia, all of her 12 siblings, her daughters Josephine Alcaraz, Dianna Garcia, infant Carmen Gallegos and son Joe Gallegos. She was the youngest of all her siblings.

She was the Matriarch of our family. She was a loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother and aunt. Lupe was a very strong quick witted, no nonsense woman with a great sense of humor. She helped raise nieces, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She called herself a judge and detective because no one could ever pull a fast one over her. And also because she was a great fan of criminal/detective tv shows.

She loved being surrounded by family and taught us all how to appreciate the little things in life. She enjoyed knitting, vacationing in Reno/Las Vegas and crossword puzzles. Her favorite color was lavender and she loved Snoopy from Charlie Brown. She will be deeply missed, never forgotten and forever in our hearts.

She is survived by: two daughters, Lupe (Robert) Guerrero and Rosemary Blains, Grandchildren: Rebecca Blains-Sanchez, Theresa Blains, David Blains, Anthony Blains, Steve Blains, Matthew Blains Loresa Delgado, Monica Alcaraz, Gilbert Guerrero and Juan Gallegos 23 great grandchildren, 4 great great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
