Paula Ramirez Oropeza(1923 - 2013)

PAULA RAMIREZ OROPEZA 12/6/23 ~ 11/23/13 Mom left us on Saturday surrounded by family and friends after a beautiful celebration of her 90th birthday. Born in Santa Barbara, CA., she was raised in Mexico, and spent most of her adult life in Gridley. She moved to Red Bluff in 1975 to nurture the family business in food. Mom was the creator of the delicious recipes at Francisco's Restaurants. She was preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, Francisco Flores Oropeza of Zacatecas, Mexico, and their youngest son Blas David Oropeza. She is survived by her 13 living children and their families, which include 36 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren. Although it is hard to let her go, we are blessed to have had her for so many years. We will cherish the many gifts she has given us, and lessons she taught us. The Oropeza family would like to thank the community of Red Bluff and Sacred Heart Parish for all their love and support. Funeral services include: Rosary at Sacred Heart Church, 5:30 p.m. on Friday, November 29th. Mass will be held at the Church at 11 a.m. on Saturday, November 30th. Reception to follow at Sacred Heart Parish. Arrangements by Chapel of the Flowers, Red Bluff. (
