Tita Ka­vanaugh Lopez

Albuquerque Journal - - METRO & NM -

Tita K. Lopez de­parted this world peace­fully on Mon­day, No­vem­ber 13, 2017, sur­rounded by her lov­ing fam­ily at home in Al­bu­querque, NM; she was 93.

Tita was born and raised in Las Ve­gas, NM, and was a long­time res­i­dent of Al­bu­querque.

She was pre­ceded in death by her hus­band, Ralph Lopez, Sr.; and son, Ralph Lopez, Jr.; par­ents, Nick and Hen­ri­etta Ka­vanaugh; broth­ers, Nick, Jr., Louis, Henry, Joe, Ernest and Hec­tor; and sis­ters, Dora Or­tiz, Josie Gar­cia, Margie Sena, and her twin sis­ter, Anna Maria Ka­vanaugh.

She is sur­vived by her chil­dren, Linda Gieri and hus­band, Val; Anna Lopez and John Lopez and wife, Paulina; grand­daugh­ter, Sofia Ba­con; brother, Arthur Ka­vanaugh, Sr.; as well as nu­mer­ous nieces and neph­ews and dear friends.

Her pas­sion was her fam­ily and her faith. A faith­ful Catholic, Tita was a mem­ber of Our Lady of Sor­rows Church in Las Ve­gas, NM, then Our Lady of Fa­tima Church in Al­bu­querque. A home­maker, she de­voted her spare time to church min­istries in the Le­gion of Mary, where she taught CCD classes and was a Eucharis­tic min­is­ter. The joy that came from lov­ing Tita al­lows us to feel her near.

In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions may be made to Our Lady of Fa­tima School in Tita’s name. All Ser­vices will be held Satur­day, De­cem­ber 9, 2017 be­gin­ning at 9:30 a.m. with a Rosary, fol­lowed by a Mass at 10:00 a.m. at Our Lady of Fa­tima church, 4020 Lo­mas Blvd NE, Al­bu­querque, NM 87110. In­ter­ment will be held at a later date in the Santa Fe Na­tional Ceme­tery.
