Margaret Rose Lozano Loera Pellow Obituary
MARGARET ROSE LOZANO LOERA PELLOW Age 79, passed away on Thursday, December 3, 2015 in Pittsburg, California. Born in Riverside, CA on September 7th, Labor Day, 1936, Margaret was the oldest of nine children born to Juan Rangel Lozano and Rose Bell Lozano. Growing up in early Riverside as a child, mom recounts hanging clothes on the blossom filled orange trees and the wonderful fragrance they would impart, as well as waking up with black sooted noses from the smudge pots in colder times. Margaret graduated from St. Francis de Sales High School in 1954, went to business college and worked at the Naval Ordinance Lab in Corona. She married Leo Loera in 1956 at Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine and had five children. Margaret's loving and gregarious spirit enriched us all, both family and strangers who quickly became friends, and she made many, wherever she went. Her biggest joy was giving. Margaret married Don Pellow in 1983, and she lived in Northern California, and Sequim, Washington, before moving back to California. Her final home was in Rio Vista. Family and friends will remember her for her superb laugh, an unmistakable signature of her zest for life. Margaret was all about family, both extended and nuclear, and she continued to maintain those ties, even after leaving Riverside. Her legacy is her love for people, which her family will carry on. Margaret is survived by her husband, Don Pellow; her children, Dr. Arnold Loera (Rose), Rose Marie Montán (David), Anna Lisa Peña (Fernando), Catherine Wiggins (John), Jerry Loera (Sheri), and step-children, Dan Pellow (Cindy), Brent Pellow (Cindy), Brian Pellow (LeAnne), and Kristie Woodson (Chris). She leaves 25 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. A celebration of her life will take place in Southern Oregon, as Margaret wished, with a family and friends reunion on the Rogue River in the summer of 2016. Margaret loved water, and it is fitting that she was born near the Santa Ana, died in Rio Vista, and wanted us all to laugh and have fun on a jet boat river/dinner cruise. As Margaret would say, "Heavenly days!"
