Escalon Times - - NEWS -

Es­ther Lopez San­doval, age 76, of Escalon went home to the Lord on Thurs­day Septem­ber 14th, 2017.

Es­ther was born in Yure­cuaro, Mi­choa­can, Mex­ico to par­ents Ino­cen­cio Lopez and Elena Reyes Lopez. She was raised in a lov­ing fam­ily of 11 chil­dren. Es­ther came to Cal­i­for­nia in 1960, where she would marry a hand­some U.S. Ma­rine and raise a lov­ing fam­ily of her own. Es­ther was a bea­con of light to her fam­ily and friends, and her friends would all be­come fam­ily.

She is re­mem­bered by all for her beau­ti­ful smile, her warm and car­ing na­ture, her strong de­vo­tion to the Lord and for the sin­cere kind­ness and love she demon­strated daily to ev­ery­one she came in con­tact with through­out her life. Her great­est joy came from her grand­chil­dren, whom she adored with all her heart. Her beauty, in­side and out, left a great im­pres­sion on all who knew her. She will al­ways be re­mem­bered as an An­gel on Earth.

Es­ther was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band Rodolfo San­doval. She is sur­vived by her lov­ing chil­dren Rudy San­doval, Elsa San­doval, Anett S. Ser­rato and He­len S. Mi­halopou­los. She is sur­vived by her sib­lings Agrip­ina L. Rizo, Fer­nando Lopez, Manuel Lopez, Vi­cente Lopez, Al­fredo Lopez and En­rique Lopez. She is also sur­vived by her beloved grand­chil­dren Rudy Jr, Vanessa, Joseph, Nathan and Isabella.
