We pray for the eternal repose of Sr Guadalupe Gomez who lost the fight to Covid this morning in San Antonio. Sr. Lupe was born on October 15, 1927, in Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico. She was 93 years of age and 68 years as a Salesian Sister. Sr. Guadalupe taught in our Elementary schools and as a catechist for 41 years in Raymondville, Laredo, and San Antonio, TX, in Arizona, California, and Louisiana. Sister was an avid reader who enjoyed reading studies on the potential of the Mexican-American woman and sharing historical religious, international, and world events. She will be greatly missed by all she ministered to, her family, her providers, especially by her religious Sisters who loved her dearly.
Sister was preceded in death by her parents, Santiago G. Gomez and Guadalupe Arredondo, her four brothers and one Salesian sister and is survived by one sister and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen
