Obituary

Guadalupe "Lupita" Martínez-Lemus, de 7 años, de Alexander, Arkansas recibió sus alas de ángel y llegó en presencia del Señor el 11 de mayo de 2021. Nació el 26 de agosto de 2013 en Little Rock, Arkansas, hija de Santos Martínez y Osmalda Lemus.

Lupita era una joven tan fuerte que nunca se quejó a través de su batalla contra el cáncer. Ella les dijo a todos que sabía -tanto familiares como cuidadores- que su sufrimiento era para Jesús. Su amigo, el Padre Nelson declaró que "no era un ángel, sino una santa". Lupita era muy querida por los médicos y enfermeras del Arkansas Children's Hospital. Aprovechó todas las oportunidades que tuvo para hablar con los demás acerca de Dios y aseguró a todos que no tenía miedo de morir porque Jesús estaba con ella. A pesar de su corta edad, tuvo la fuerza de un león y deja mensajes para todos aquellos que la aman. Algunas de sus últimas palabras fueron "Te amo, eres especial, te amaré para siempre". Lupita, te amamos, Eres especial, y te amaremos para siempre.

Antes de Lupita en la muerte están sus abuelos que la cuidan en el cielo, Jesús Lemus y Jorge Martínez.

Deja atrás para atesorar su memoria: padres, Santos Martínez y Osmalda Lemus; hermano, Santos G. Martínez-Lemus; hermana, Sophia Martínez; abuelas: Carmelina Antonia Alarcón y Gregoria Sagastume; muchas tías, tíos, familiares y amigos que aman a Lupita y la extrañarán siempre.

La visita se llevará a cabo de 4:00 a 8:00 PM, lunes 17 de mayo en Smith-Benton Funeral Home, 322 N. Market Street en Benton, Arkansas. El rosario se llevará a cabo el martes 18 de mayo alas 11:00 a.m., seguido de la Misa de Entierro Cristiano en la Iglesia Católica Nuestra Señora de Fátima, 900 West Cross Street en Benton, Arkansas. Sepultura siguiendo en el cementerio Smith-Rosemont con sus tíos ayudando como portadores de férelos.

El agradecimiento especial para los médicos, enfermeras y personal de apoyo en arkansas Children's Hospital por su atención atenta y amorosa mostró Lupita y la asistencia proporcionada por las muchas organizaciones en su nombre.

Guadalupe “Lupita” Martinez-Lemus, 7, of Alexander, Arkansas received her angel wings and arrived in the presence of the Lord May 11, 2021.  She was born August 26, 2013 in Little Rock, Arkansas to Santos Martinez and Osmalda Lemus.

Lupita was such a strong young girl who never complained through her battle with cancer.  She told everyone she knew- both family and caregivers-that her suffering was for Jesus.  Her friend, Father Nelson stated “she was not an angel, but a saint.”  Lupita was dearly loved by the doctors and nurses at Arkansas Children’s Hospital.  She used every opportunity she had to talk to others about God and assured everyone that she was not scared to die because Jesus was with her.  Despite her young age, she had the strength of a lion and leaves messages behind for all those who love her.  Some of her last words were “I love you, You’re special, I’ll love you forever.”   Lupita, we love You, You’re special, and we will love you forever.

Preceding Lupita in death are her grandfathers who are taking care of her in heaven, Jesus Lemus and Jorge Martinez.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory:  parents, Santos Martinez and Osmalda Lemus; brother, Santos G. Martinez-Lemus; sister, Sophia Martinez; grandmothers:  Carmelina Antonia Alarcon and Gregoria Sagastume; many aunts, uncles, family members and friends who love Lupita and will miss her always.
