1936 - 2016 Obituary Condolences
Surrounded by loved ones, our beloved mother, Socorro Rodriguez Lopez, closed her eyes for the last time on November 8, 2016 and went to be with our Lord. She is preceded in death by her parents, Juan Rodriguez and Carmen Lopez; brother, Luis Rodriguez Lopez; granddaughter, Elisa Guadalupe Padilla; great-grandson, Lazarus Kai Padilla; and nephew, Antonio Tapia. Socorro was born in El Platanal, Michoacán, Mexico 80 years ago on October 19, 1936 where she grew up before coming to the United States in the early 1960's. She worked as a migrant farm worker in the Indio and Fresno areas before settling in Lamont, CA in the late 1960's but always kept Michoacán in her heart with fond memories of growing up in "La Planta". She is survived by sisters Maria Isabel Rodriguez Lopez and Concepcion Chipres; children Esperanza Padilla, Juan Rodriguez, Bertha Alicia Escobedo, Manuel Rodriguez, (daughter-in-law, Ramona Rodriguez), Felipe Rodriguez, (daughter-in-law Cheryl Rodriguez), (son in-law, Fidel Montaño), Maria Del Carmen Montaño, (son-in-law, Jesus Torres) and Socorro Torres; 24 grandchildren and 42 great-grand children...and counting.
If roses grow in Heaven Lord, please pick a bunch for us. Place them in our Mother's arms and tell her they are from us. Tell her we love and miss her and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while. Because remembering her is easy, we do it everyday, but there's an ache within our hearts that will never go away. We love you and already miss you deeply.
