- About Us
Ramona Gonzales Lopez, our beautiful, sweet mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and loving wife passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family in her home on Friday, October 12, 2018.
She was born November 20, 1933 in Rodarte, NM to Victoriano and Estefanita Gonzales of Rodarte, NM.
She married her sweetheart, Tranquilino Lopez, Jr., on May 26, 1958 in NM when they embarked on his military career that landed them in their forever-home in Tooele.
She was a nanny prior to employment with Univac and later retired from Tooele Army Depot. She always greeted everyone with her beautiful smile. Her family was her pride and joy and usually the subject of her conversations. Her most favorite time spent was that with her loved ones. She was actively involved and gave them her heart in times of sadness and joy.
She was a devoted Catholic and member of St. Marguerite’s Catholic Church in Tooele.
Ramona is survived by her husband of 60+ years, Tranquilino Lopez, Jr. of Tooele, 6 children, Larry Lopez (Diana) of Taos, NM, Lorraine Mascarenas (Joe) of Tooele, Loretta Herron (Tim) of Tooele, Louise Wiedmer (Alan) of Vernal, Lori Hammond of Columbia, SC, and Steve Lopez (Bobbie) of Tooele, 16 grandchildren, and 18 great-grandchildren, her brothers Lawrence (Cecilia), Ermo (Liz), Victor (Diana), Bernie (Rose), Liberato (Josie), and sisters Rosa, Otilia Polaco (Ike), and sisters-in-law Ruth and Eva Gonzales. She was preceded in death by her mother, father, brothers Eustaquio, Michael, Jose, Juan and sisters, Carlota, and Alicia.
