Concepcion Lamas was known as many things to many people. She was a loved one, a friend, and someone special. To family and friends who knew her best, Concepcion will be remembered as a very exceptional person.

Concepcion was born on December 8, 1933 at County of Los Angeles Hospital in Los Angeles, California. She was the daughter of Martin Savedra and Ignacia Hernandez. Concepcion grew up in San Fernando, California.

Concepcion was raised with five siblings. Concepcion was usually involved in all sorts of activities with her siblings. She and her siblings experienced rivalries typical of a growing family, but they shared many life experiences over the years.

A typical teenager, Concepcion had a fairly happy high school experience, making that critical transition from adolescence to adulthood. She enjoyed some classes more than others, having favorite subjects and teachers.

Always considered a “good” friend to those she knew, Concepcion enjoyed a broad group of acquaintances and several very close friends during her lifetime. Later in life, she became friends with Jewell Simpson, Carmen Figueroa, Mary Velasquez and Mercedes Duran.

On July 20, 1957 and again on May 29, 1993 Concepcion exchanged wedding vows with Hipolito "Pablo" Lamas. The first time they married in Los Angeles, California and then at the Church of Precious Blood in Banning, California. Empathic and loyal, Concepcion was committed to making her new family happy.

Concepcion worked hard to be a good mother to her children and she did her best to fulfill their needs. Concepcion was blessed with seven children, Antonio, Gloria, Hipolito (Poly), Herlinda, Patricia, Rafael & Rose Marie. Another blessing for Concepcion was the gift of nineteen grandchildren, Antonio III, Brandy, Nina, Christiana, Aaron, Gloria, Julia, Rafael, JoAnne, Emily, Stevie, Steven, Stevana, Stefan, Sophia, Spencer, Hipolito, Ericka and Kent; eight great-grandchildren, Giselle, Melody, Nadine, Adrian, Marcos, Josiah, Lilly and Brody.

Fortunately, Concepcion enjoyed what she did for a living. Showing a strong work ethic, Concepcion worked diligently and did her best to succeed in her career. Her primary occupation was as a homemaker, great wife and mother. Concepcion always sought to be a team player, doing what was necessary in order to get the job done.

Concepcion enjoyed her leisure time by taking part in various hobbies. Her favorite pursuits were crocheting, reading and collecting porcelain dolls. She was content to enjoy her favorite pastimes alone but was also willing to share her interests with others.

Concepcion’s faith was important to her. She was a member of the Church of Precious Blood for 28 years.

Concepcion passed away on March 20, 2012 at Redlands Community Hospital in Redlands, California. She is survived by her children, Antonio, Gloria, Hipolito, Herlinda, Patricia and Rose Marie; grandchildren, Antonio III, Brandy, Nina, Christiana, Aaron, Gloria, Julia, Rafael, JoAnne, Emily, Stevie, Steven, Stevana, Stefan, Sophia, Spencer, Hipolito, Ericka and Kent; great-grandchildren, Giselle, Melody, Nadine, Adrian, Marcos, Josiah, Lilly and Brody; and her brother Joe. She was preceded in death by her parents, Martin and Ignacia, her husband, Hipolito and her son, Rafael. Visitation was held from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 at Weaver Mortuary Chapel in Beaumont. A Rosary was held at 10:30 AM followed by a Funeral Mass at 11:00 AM on Wednesday, March 28, 2012 at Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic Church in Banning, California. Concepcion was laid to rest in San Gorgonio Memorial Park in Banning, California.

Simply stated, Concepcion was a good and kind person, an individual who will for all time be remembered by her family and friends as being a caring and giving person, someone who was a vital part of their lives.

Words cannot express the pain we feel when our loved one is no longer here. Connie gave of her self unconditionally, she loved and was loved by many. She was there for me when my mama left us. She gave me her shoulder without saying a word, her love comforted me most. She will be so greatly missed. I love you all, and I am praying for your strength.

Our prayers go out to the family. My family lived down the street from the Lamas' and I remember fondly Connie cooking for her whole family, my sister and me in this tiny kitchen. Man oh Man, the kitchen was small but the meals were BIG, delicious and me and my sister I always felt welcome. I had the opportunity to say hello and chat with her for a while last year and it brought back warm and fuzzy memories. I will miss her very much but I know we'll all be together again.
