MARIA DE JESUS LOZANO
January 24, 2020
MARIA DE JESUS LOZANO was affectionately known to me as “Mamá” maker of beautiful crocheted items. I have scarves, one in purple and white. Such delicate craftsmanship is beautiful; and so was Mamá.
Mamá was kind, compassionate and she loved her family, friends and the Lord Jesus Christ above all.
I know only pieces of her life story. I know that so many people in this world have it so much easier than Mamá did; and many never have had to face even half the stuff she experienced. I know that she experienced a lot of life and loss—from the loss of a daughter to the loss of her husband. These losses could have been too overwhelming at times for Mamá found strength through the love of her children and her relationship with the Lord.
Mamá was so strong that late in her adult life she left her Zacatecas for a life in America to live immersed in the nearness of her family. To embrace each day surrounded by the children she raised, to visit with grandchildren and great-grandchildren. To make new friendships in California and Arizona.
Mamá was a gardener! Gardening is tedious and hard work & gardeners are special people. It takes an incredible amount of patience and perseverance. Mamá, by caring for these living plants and flowers, helped to bring spaces of beauty and peace to the world. In this same way she nurtured friendships with her gentle mannerisms and her smile.
There are really no words to describe the closeness I witnessed of Sonia & Lupe in caring for Mamá. Just as there are no words to comfort all the children of Mamá (from Coco to Panfi). There are only feelings that may make your heart burst at times with tears or laughter. Feelings of the memories of your childhood, your teen years, your lives as adults built because Mamá cared for, nurtured and raised each of you.
But here’s the thing to hold on to. Mamá kept her faith. That is a wonderful legacy, whether your life is easier at times or hard. Mamá kept her faith. - Love & prayers, Wendita' Plummer
