On October 14, 1944, our beautiful queen, Mary Luz Lopez, was born to Basilica Villalba and George Lopez. She was called home to be with the Lord on September 24, 2018.
When it came to her family and friends, her love was limitless. Although her walk in life was difficult at times, God’s amazing love and mercy brought her to Christ.
She had an amazing spirit that magnetically drew others to her. Her hugs, kisses, smell, and crazy sense of humor will forever be missed.
Mary L. Melendez will forever be cherished by her children: David G. Melendez (Linda Melendez), Mary L. Melendez, Dolores Reaves (John A. Reaves, Jr.), Deborah Melendez, Michael A. Melendez, Reymundo Melendez, Jose Melendez; twenty grandchildren, forty great-grandchildren (and counting!); siblings: Madaline Arce Furst (Albert Furst), Bernie Arce; sister-in-law, Carmen Lopez, and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
