Ernestina I. Lopez, age 91, went home to be with her Heavenly Father on Sunday, January 31, 2016. Ernestina grew up in Talpa, N.M. the eldest child of Felipe and Maria Pablita Martinez. Ernestina moved to Albuquerque in the mid 1940's where she met her husband Jesse. They spent many happy years together enjoying their wonderful, large family.

We are all very proud of our mother, grandmother, great-grand mother, aunt and sister.
