Connie Lucero Pesqueira

February 4, 1934June 24, 2020

Connie Lucero Pesqueira was born February 4th 1934 in Calexico, CA. Connie was the sixth of seven girls born to Jose Lucero Peloux and Mercedes Corazon Castro. Connie attended Calexico High School where she was very active in school activities. She was selected as Freshman Homecoming Princess in 1950 and later was voted senior Homecoming Queen. While in high school, Connie worked at the Aztec Theater where she met the love of her life, Ignacio (Nacho) Pesqueira. Nacho asked Connie to marry him while she was a senior in high school and they married in October after graduation in 1953.

Connie and Nacho started their family soon after and was blessed with their first child, Rosemarie. Connie and Nacho worked at the Reception Center in Imperial Valley for the Bracero program in the 50’s along with her sister Maggie and future brother in-law, Oscar. Connie and Nacho went on to have three more children, Michael, Freddy, and Connie Jr. Connie was a homemaker for several years until her children were older and then went to work for the Calexico school district as a teacher’s assistant until she retired in 1991.

Connie and Nacho moved to Mira Mesa where they bought a condo. They lived their dream and toured the U.S. for months at a time in their motorhome. They enjoyed their retirement together with family and friends for many years until her Viejito’s, (Nacho, as she lovingly referred to him), passing in 1997. In later years, Connie enjoyed going on many cruises with her family and traveling to the Mexican Riviera, Bahamas, Alaska and Hawaii with her sisters. If you went in a casino in San Diego, chances were good you would find Connie and her sister Maggie at their favorite machine.

Connie was special to all of us whose lives she touched. She was 86 when she went home to be with the Lord on June 24th 2020. She is preceded by her mother and father, her husband Nacho (mi Viejito), Sisters and brothers in-law’s; Vera (Chalo Reveles), Bertha (Rafael Rosas) Josephine (Hap Navarro) Grace (Al Uribe) Lucille (Frank Terrazas) (Oscar Pompa). Connie is survived by her children; Rosemarie (Aggie), Michael (Tillie) Freddy & Connie (Gerardo). Her grandchildren; Michael Jr, Julia, Christina, Mark-Anthony, Vanessa, Andrea and Natalie and great grandchildren, Leah, Lucas, Isaiah, Serena, Maya; sister Maggie along with many niece’s, nephew’s, friends, and their extended families.

Connie will be laid to rest beside her sweet Viejito at El Camino Memorial Park. The service will be a private service with immediate family attending due to Covid-19. Obituary lovingly submitted by sister Maggie and niece Margaret (Chila)

My favorite memory of this lovely lady comes to mind how she always had lipstick on. She was very dear to me. Her big heart showed grace and kindness to everyone she knew. I pray that the road to her new life finds her free of pain. I pray that her family finds strength to know that there’s an angel in heaven blessing them. Rest In Peace Mrs. Pesqueira

My heart aches for the family of this wonderful woman. She was a gift to all who met her and knew her with her warm, beautiful smile and sweet nature. Rosemarie, know you have your Jimenez family with you and know that my mother, Blanca, cared for Connie deeply. She is undoubtedly one of the many angels welcoming your mother to Heaven.
Love, Veronica
