Lupe Peña Dominguez, a former resident of San Lorenzo, entered eternal rest at Fort Bayard Medical Center on June 4, 2014. Lupita was born on Dec. 11, 1919, in San Lorenzo to Desiderio N. and Andrea (Roybal) Peña. She was a communicant of the Catholic Church. She was a wonderful homemaker, always making sure her family and friends were never without a plate of "goodies" to acknowledge her appreciation for their love and friendship. Her sense of humor was a beautiful trademark of her character and she never seemed to have a bad day. She is survived by her sons, Jerry P. Dominguez, of Alhambra, California, Reuben P. Dominguez of San Lorenzo; daughter, Lorraine Holguin and husband, Richard, of San Lorenzo; grandchildren, Jimmy McDonald and wife, Ofelia, of Victoria, Texas, Michele McDonald of Silver City; sister, Clorinda P. Montoya and husband, Richard of Los Angeles, and numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents; husband Prudencio B. Dominguez; infant children Herman P. Dominguez and Esther P. Dominguez, and son-in-law, Eddie J. McDonald. The holy rosary will be recited at 7 p.m. today, June 6, 2014, at Baca's Funeral Chapels led by Deacon Richard Rodriguez.
