Biography

Guadalupe (Lupe) Reneau was born to Maria and Francisco Arroyos on February 23, 1936 in Elsa, Tx. She was the second eldest of 8 children. She was family oriented, loving, and a friend to many. She went on to marry the love of her life John Reneau Sr. and had 5 children of her own. John Jr, Maynard (David), Billy, Elizabeth (Lisa), and Bryan. She had 9 grandchildren, and some great grandchildren.

She was a very loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Modest and strong willed, she led a life that impacted many others. She was fearless and accepted challenges head on. She was a very dedicated and hard working woman, who could out work men a quarter of her age. She passed that work ethic, determination, and strong will on to her children with the knowledge and lessons that she had learned along life's journey.

She loved her husband deeply. They shared a marriage for 37+ years that each of us strive for. Committed, loving, fun, and most importantly happy. Rarely a disagreement between the two, they shared a life as one and truly cherished each other. They not only loved side by side, they worked side by side.

She spent much of her life remodeling others homes with her husband. Side by side they spent many of days making others wishes and dreams into a reality. She continued doing so after he was called home, and did so with skilled hands and vision. She was an artist with a paint brush, hammer, and tools, whos canvass was a home in need of her special touch. The beauty she created didn't stop with her work, it spilled over to her love for her family.

She was free speaking and didn't hold back telling you exactly what she was thinking, but she did so with so much love. She expected the very best from each of her children, and supported them all as only a mother can do. You weren't allowed to leave her house hungry, regardless of the time of day. Papas y huevos, or homemade tacos, menudo, and on occasion tamales are meals all of her children and grandchildren will always remember. She was always so thrilled to see her kids, and grandchildren as much as she could.

Oh how she loved the sight of her grandchildren (especially when they were still babies), they would bring a smile and glow to her face that would brighten the room. She didn't ask if she could wake a sleeping grandchild, and you just never told her no. She got so much joy from holding them, feeding them, playing with them, that all you could do is just sit back and soak up the laughter. And grandchild or not, most referred to her as mom.

She worked hard, but wasn't work all the time. She would catch you off guard with a joke that you could never predict, and her laugh was so contagious. She would pull the occasional prank that would just leave you speechless and wonder where she came up with it. She had a kind loving heart and a giving soul.

She believed in God, and rarely missed a Sunday mass, and was sure to be at confession on Saturday afternoon if able. Another attribute she passed along to her children. Work if you must, and if not, you should be in church to hear the good Lord's word. She ensured to teach all of her children this, and as good as sleeping in sounded to all of the kids, she would wake you up for Sunday school when you were young enough to go. She was sure to be dressed in her Sunday best and a spritz of Red Door perfume. She was a dedicated follower of Jesus, if she couldn't drive to church, she would walk.

For all of us that share memories of her, each have the knowledge that although our hearts ache for she will be missed, heaven has called home an Angel.
