Guadalupe will be missed by many nieces and nephews, who she cared for throughout her entire life. Guadalupe is defined by her family as “strong.” She was born with polio but never let it slow her down in life. She was courageous, brave and very adventurous. She loved to travel with her best friend of 20+ years, Ana Maria. She would often purchase bus tickets and just travel without a map and know exactly where to go. She remembered details unlike any other- birthdays, directions, numbers…she could recall anything easily without having to write it down. She was top of her class and great at math. Guadalupe loved her family and will be missed by so many.
