Guadalupe was born September 1, 1939 in Laredo, TX to Doroteo & Paula Gomez. While growing up her best memories were of her time spent with her baby brother, Chilo, whom she adored. She married Jesus Barrera and moved to Plainview, TX where she established her life-long home. She treasured her five children more than anything in the world.

Lupita worked at Covenant Health Plainview hospital for twenty-two years as a housekeeper and later took on the role of supervisor.

Lupita was a faithful member of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. She will be most remembered as a servant of Christ. Lupita walked daily and prayed in the direction in which one lived. Her devotion and strength held the family together through difficult times. Guadalupe’s life was a blessing to all. Her memories will be cherished and her legacy will continue through her prayerful hands.
