My mother Guadalupe Garcia Tinoco was born on 11/10/1972. Many people called her Lupe. Her parents were Robert Tinoco and Amelia Tinoco. She was the sister to Robert and Rosa. She was mother to Vanessa Preciado, Stephanie Preciado, and Faith Preciado.
At a young age my mother endured the loss of her mother Amelia Tinoco who passed at age 47. My mother was also only 47 years old when she passed. My mother was dealing with the loss of her mother at age 21 and had two young children to raise. At the time she raised my sisters and I the best she could. Most of my childhood my mother was a single mother, who always made sure we had everything we needed or wanted. Looking back I see how strong of a woman my mother truly, and I don’t think I could ever be as strong as she was.
On October 24, 2020 our mother passed away unexpectedly. Our mother faced many hardships, but was always was a loving and caring person. Her heart was pure, and that is how we want people to remember her by.
She loved her grandchildren Mia Espinoza, Victoria Alonso, and Elle Espinoza. My mother always made sure to make her grandchildren feel so special and would spoil them with love. She never missed the opportunity to spend time with them.
She also loved to sing and had such a soft and angelic voice. I still remember my mother singing to me as little girl. I remember how at safe, and at peace I would feel just by the sound of her beautiful voice. My mother always wanted to help others with whatever little she had. She constantly put others before herself, and would offer anyone her last dollar, because that is how giving she was.
At 2:45 pm our mother texted my sisters and I she loved us all. Our mother passed less than an hour later. Although her passing was not expected to us God must have known and gave her a chance to say goodbye to us.
My mother was an amazing person, and I am so proud she is my mother. Please remember my mother always as the kind hearted person she was!
