Carmen Gomez Obituary
Carmen Gomez of Bakersfield, California passed away on December 1, 2014 after her battle with cancer.
She is survived by her loving and caring husband, Evelio Gomez, her mother, Connie Villarreal, her brothers, Frank and Lorenzo Hurtado, her daughters: Alejandra (Alfred) Villegas, Marianna (Brian) Feaver, Evelina (Anthony) Marquez, Imelda Aguirre, and Marisela Estrada, her grandchildren: Nathan, Juan, Gina, Al.J, Andy, Alexandra, Ian, Christopher, Lucas, Mikaela, Rebekah, Cameron, Amelia and Sanitago, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Carmen grew up in Bakersfield, attended school in Edison School District and went on to graduate from Foothill High School in 1974. Shortly after, she began her career with the County of Kern. She was a devoted and hardworking employee, creating many friendships along the way. After 33 years of service, Carmen retired in 2012 to focus more on family and Premier Lock, Bakersfield, a business she co-founded. Carmen was also very active in her community, volunteering for numerous community charities, fundraisers, and events.
Carmen was a great example of a mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, wife, and friend. She often cared for others more than she cared for herself. She worked hard for her family and made sure they were well taken care of. Her children and grandkids were her pride and joy and she spoiled each and every one of them. If there was free time to be had, it was spent doing what she loved most, being surrounded by family. Carmen left a memorable impression with those she met and had a way of making everyone feel special. She will be greatly missed by those who knew her.
