Petra Lopez Sepeda

1936 - 2012 Obituary Condolences
Petra Lopez Sepeda June 29, 1936 - July 11, 2012 Petie was born in Corpus Christi, Texas. Her family moved to California in the 1950s, where she raised her younger siblings while her parents went to work in the fields during the day. She met her husband, Lalo, and they were married for over 40 years and raised their family. She was a very traditional Mexican woman who valued family and enjoyed cooking for them, and everyone especially enjoyed her rice. She had her children dance in folklorico costumes that she had made herself, with love, and later for her grandchildren. She will be greatly missed. Petie was preceded in death by her husband, Felix Menchaca Sepeda (Lalo); parents, Refugio and Guadalupe Lopez; and brother, Ruperto Lopez Julia Caserez. She is survived by siblings, Benny Lopez, Mary A. Parra, Aurora (Lolie) Lopez, Carmen Corbin, Al (Rufus) Lopez, Raul Lopez, Robert Lopez, Elsa Comulada, and Naomi Feliz; her children, Delores, Delia, Veronica, Judas, and Orlando; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. Visitation will be held on Tuesday, July 17, 2012, 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., followed by a Rosary at 6:00 p.m. at Greenlawn Memorial Chapel, 3700 River Blvd. A chapel service will be held on Wednesday, July 18, 2012, at 10:00 a.m. For condolences please visit www.greenlawnmortuaryandcemetery.com.
