She attended DiGiorgio Elementary School and Kern High School (BHS) She married Joaquin Cota and after living on a ranch in Arvin, they made their home in Lamont where they raised their four sons. Mom loved to putter in her flower beds and had a great passion for her rose bushes. She especially loved her Sunday visits with her brother, Frank, where they talked and laughed robustly as they reminisced their childhood. Mom's heart was also filled with the special love she had for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Lupe is survived by her sons: Daniel (Raquel), Ralph (Olga), Mario; brother, Frank Soza; several grandchildren, great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased in death by her parents; husband; son, Joaquin, Jr.; grandson, Mario, Jr.; siblings: Eulalia, Dolores, Celia, Maria, Jose and Luis. Lupe's beautiful smile and positive attitude will be greatly missed by her family and friends. We would like to thank the nurses and doctors who cared for our mother at San Joaquin Hospital.
