Socorro Cepeda Obituary
Socorro "Sue" Rivera Cepeda

Age 78, died peacefully on January 22, 2016 after a several year struggle with Dementia in Vancouver, Washington. Socorro was born in Tornillo, Texas, on January 8th, 1938, the daughter of Patricio and Margarita Rivera of Zacatecas, Mexico.
Socorro grew up in El Paso, Texas, and Juarez, Mexico. In her early 20s she met and married the love of her life, Hector J. Cepeda Sr., and they moved to Los Angeles.
With her devoted husband of over 40 years, a union worker and official with ILWU Local 26, the couple owned and operated beauty salons in Lawndale, Harbor City and Torrance. In addition to working hard, the couple loved to dance and laugh and have a great time out on the town.
Socorro is survived by her sister, Margarita Espinoza, and her three children, Esther Hatch (Will), Helena Cepeda Yeager (Rick), and Hector J. Cepeda II (Pilar), as well as five grandchildren, Hector III, Eliana, Anika, Gabriel, and Willie.
Socorro's smile and laughter were only surpassed by her tremendous generosity and kindness. She will be missed by all who knew her.
