On Monday, August 24, 2020, Angels came and escorted our mother, LORENZA MACIAS ALVAREZ, to her brand new home in Heaven to be with our Lord Jesus Christ. Please take a moment and share a fond memory or thoughtful expression of sympathy for Lorenza’s family at


Our mother, Lorenza, who was 89 years young, was known to everyone by (Lencha). She was born on December 3, 1930, in Nuevo Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, Mexico, to Rafael and Julia Macias. In 1951, Lorenza met and married the love of her life, Manuel L. Alvarez. From this union, they were blessed with seven children whom she adored., four boys, and three girls: Jesus, Alejandro, Juan, Rogelio, Irma, Graciela, and Sandra. Lorenza was a sweet, kindhearted individual who worked all her life to provide for her family. She worked in restaurants as a head cook, being El Charro Café, The Line Shack, and Capital Café. Lorenza always made time to teach her children to have good morals and values, as well as to be kind and loving. She continuously encouraged her children to learn and finish school, as well as to be hard workers.

Lorenza loved our Lord, Jesus Christ, very much and would pray to Him every night. She adored all her grandkids and great-grandkids very much, which were many. Mom, you were the best mother and grandmother anyone could ask for. We love you very much and will miss you.

Lorenza leaves behind her son, Jesus; two daughters: Graciela and Sandra; as well as two daughters from dad’s previous marriage, Mary Salas and Ramona Olivas; siblings: Dolores Renteria, Euladio Ruiz, Berta Ruiz, Mario Ruiz, Lettie Cotto, and Marcelo Macias; twenty-one grandkids; fifty-nine great-grandkids; nine great-great-grandkids; numerous nephews and nieces; as well as her many friends who would come by and drink coffee with her and visit, especially, Pricilla Franco and Rosa Marquez.
