Obituary: Lupe R. Arriola
May 15, 1926 - October 10, 2011
Early before dawn our beloved Lupe passed into a peaceful sleep. Born in Dallas Texas, Lupe moved to Fremont, Irvington District, in CA where she resided and raised her family. She is survived by her brother Pedro Munoz of Hayward; daughter Marta Perez of Fremont; sons Sabino Perez of Modesto, Crespin Perez of Fremont, Manual Perez of Oroville and stepsons David, Daniel, Donald Arriola; five daughter-in laws; 17 grandchildren; and 19 great-grandchildren.
Lupe enjoyed helping others and volunteered in her community for which she received many Awards and Certificates. She was a poll worker at election time; participated and graduated from the Fremont Police Citizens Academy, a Board Member of the Fremont Senior Citizens Commission, and her favorite, working with the League of Volunteers (LOV) during the holidays. There she helped serve others less fortunate and offered encouragement through smiles and words.
Lupe was kind, loving, strong and brave. She loved God and had Him in her heart. In her final moments, she had one simple request. She wanted to go home. God welcomed home an angel.
A committal service will be held Saturday October 22, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Hayward.
