Eufemia was a beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Her favorite past-times were spending time with her pet dogs, shopping for her home, dancing and enjoying all sorts of exotic house plants. Eufemia was most passionate about investing her time with her family. She always had a wonderful smile and a joyful laugh that would light up the room. Eufemia was big hearted, full of love, caring and compassionate. A perfect example from Exodus 20:12, “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.”
Eufemia is survived by her loving family: her daughters, Diana Rodriguez and husband, Freddy Rodriguez and Sylvia Padilla, all of Lamesa; her sisters, Geneva Lopez, Lupe Diaz, Josie Cantu, Olga Valle and Janie Salazar; six grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren; and numerous relatives and friends.
