Amalia R. Zepeda passed away on Thursday, September 16, at the age of 105. She was preceded in death by her husband Trinidad N. Zepeda, her parents, and eight of nine siblings. Her sister Carlota Martinez survives her. Amalia was the most loving and caring mother to four children: Rogerio (Gladys) Zepeda, Oscar (Dolores) Zepeda, Celina (Marcos) Mendoza, and Evangelina (Felipe) Lopez.

She was surrounded by love from her seven great-grandchildren and six great-great-grandchildren.

We would like to thank our extended family and friends for the love and friendship that was shown to our mother.  Her productive life was enriched by the time shared with her.
