Elouise Hernandez Lopez of Humble, Texas, passed peacefully at home surrounded by loving family on November 26, 2019.

She was born to Toney and Angelina Hernandez in Houston, Texas, on October 3, 1951. She returns home to a joyous reunion with her best friend and husband of 50 years Pete Lopez, Jr.; brother Anthony Hernandez; and all the ancestors.

Elouise had the courage to live life exactly the way she wanted and the ability to bend the universe to her will with love and laughter when life handed her a plot twist. She was blessed with many caring friends who were by her side until the end keeping her spirits up with visits and prayers.

Elouise will be dearly missed by daughters Liana and Leticia; sister Lydia Ramirez and husband Arthur Sr.; so many loving family members and friends too many to name here (thankfully); and by her three kitty kids who she spoiled just like anyone else who walked through our front door.

Please share a story with us here. The posts will be made into a book for us. Hearing stories we haven't heard about our mom has lessened the heartache a bit....it makes us smile anyway...😘

My Tia. My Godmother. She was one of the wonderful and constant influential women in my life since the day I was born. Some of my favorite memories of her would be when I was a little girl, I would spend the night and hang out with Leti. Or when she would let me choose any movie from her huge movie collection to watch. She was at every huge moment in my life with support and love. I’m gonna miss her laugh and love for the color purple.

Rest in Paradise Tia. I know you’re enjoying Heaven with your husband, mom and brother by your side. Love you always.💜

I met Elouise and Pete back in the late 70’s at Stadium Bowl. We were League bowlers at that time. From that point, we had a “friendship “! Of all the memories we made this one stands out. I asked Elouise to babysit my two year old daughter, Nicole. The evening I arrived, she was experimenting mixing “Long Island Tea”. Needless to say, “Elouise saved me that night with her kindness, love and hospitality”. I did not need to leave to find that! It was there! Love you! “Ellie you will always be in my heart”!

Elouise and I became freinds at Robert Louis Stevenson elementarry school. She was a very smart little girl , Always had the biggest smile, Seemed as if she was proudly showing off those deep dimples of hers all the time. We continued our friendship at George Washington Jr High where we also became good freinds with a guy named Pete Lopez. I found at this early age that Elouise was a very sharing person as she on so many occasions allowed me to copy from her homework assignments answers saving me from getting alot of F's. In our Senior High school years we went in different directions . Unfortunately some 40 plus years passed with no contact 'til I searched Social media for her and Pete. Sadly I only found a photo of Pete's headstone. For the past two years Elouise and I have since kept in contacts sharing some very old memories .I am sad to see her leave us, but happy to know that she is now restored, free of pain and suffering. Happy that she and Pete are reunited once again. R.I.P. my friends ....... R.I.P

I met Eloise several years ago we got along from the moment we met. We were both married over 40 years, we had same birthday and we both love our husbands and children without measure. When my husband passed she called and talk for hours and when her husband passed we cried, we laughed we shared from the heart. She will be missed! ❤️

My heart hurts for her daughters Liana & Leticia! I will always love you both!
My sis n law would always lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. When my late husband passed away Elouise & Pete helped me financially, even though they didn't have the funds. Pete was working a job at the airport & he donated All his tip money to help me get through some tough times. They were saving that money for something they were wanting & instead, they gave that money to help me after Anthony passed away. That was the kind of people they were, selfless! Always volunteering to help when we were moving from place to place. So thoughtful of them always! I only wish I could help in some way. I will always cherish the fun memories of playing cards with them while Miranda & Leti tumbled in the living room with the video camera on & the star attraction was none other than Leti Lopez, lol! I will never ever forget our precious memories! RIP Elouise! You will be dearly missed!

Elouise & I are cousins who grew up just blocks away. We were close. When our children were growing up we would meet on fridays to play cards and games. We had so much fun drinking and playing games. She was our bartender. She made the Long Island Teas just right! We would go dancing or take the kids to astroworld. We made memories!

Previously I shared about how Eli and I met and right off became great friends to last 50 years. We were both 18 in Germany with our husbands.
She was from Texas and I from Kentucky. I was totally unfamiliar with her Mexican heritage, so it was a total shock to me when Pete and Eli invited us for dinner. When I walked into the apartment, the food smelled wonderful, but I couldn't figure out by the smell what it was. Shortly after, we all sat down at a small table. We we served fresh homemade tortillas with meat filling, Spanish rice and black beans. This was the first time I had ever been exposed to Mexican cuisine. (Plus remember we were in Germany and I also had never experienced German food either.) We all had a good laugh as Pete and Eli explained what we were eating and how it was prepared,
Referring to the picture where Eli was holding an iron skillet; she would on occasion threaten Pete with throwing it at him when he was teasing her. BUT I never witnessed that happening.
We will never forget the quaint experience. We love and miss you both. May God be with you as you meet again!
