Lupe Rodriguez Valero

  1. Lupe Rodriguez Valero of Dinuba, CA passed away on February 5, 2022

Lupe Rodriguez Valero was born on April 12, 1954 in Nuevo León, México to Dionicio and Melquiadez Rodriguez. Lupe became a citizen of the United States as an infant.

Lupe attended Cutler elementary school as a child and graduated from Orosi Highschool with the class of 1973. After graduation, Lupe furthered her education by attending the College of the Sequoias. With having a passion for children and learning she accepted a position with the Cutler-Orosi Joint Unified School District.  In 2010, Lupe decided it was time to retire after having served the school district and made a lasting impact on her students’ lives for over 37 years.

While Lupe’s parents worked long hard hours to provide for the family, Lupe, being the oldest of eight took on a mother role to her siblings. She took it upon herself to make sure that her brothers and sisters were always on their best behavior. She made it a point growing up to assign chores, assign cooking responsibilities. Her siblings would tell you that she didn’t give them any slack with the exception of Leti (she always had a soft spot for the baby!)

Lupe’s number one pride was her family. Whether she was with her husband trying her luck at the local casinos, shopping and spending time with her husband, spouse, children, and grandchildren. Lupe loved to make sure her home was decorated and filled with love and happiness. Aside from her family, Lupe loved spending time with her girlfriends Connie, Carmen, Merlyn, Kim, Maria, Gene, Janice, Betty, Everly, Marilyn, Carol R, Judy, Carol M, Juanita, Mary, Teri, Pauline, and Paul all of whom she developed a lifelong friendship with. Once a month the “lunch Bunch” would get together and enjoy each other’s company as well as share in special meal. She looked forward to her girls day
