Maria de Lourdes Saucedo, born on April 22, 1928, at Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico passed away on April 10, 2017 with family by her side. Her parents were Jose Valladares and Carmen Valladares. She is survived by her children Lourdes Bernadette Cervantes (Ivan) and David Edward Saucedo (Sandra); niece, Bertha Saucedo Morales (Joe); grandchildren David Edward Saucedo II (Mariana), Cassandra Saucedo Ruiz (Hector), Mauricio Alberto Saucedo (Tanya); and six great-granddaughters. She is preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Edward Saucedo, son Edward David "Punky" Saucedo, daughter Rosa Maria, and sister Carmen Valladares Saucedo. Lourdes was the absolute bedrock of the family and her contributions helped make the Saucedo family business a success. She left famed El Paso businessman Fred Hervey as his lead accountant to join her husband's business in the late 1950s. We learned a lot from Lourdes, she took what she wanted from life and lived for her family. Her resilience and will to succeed was contagious, including her deep devotion to the Blessed Mother. She would pray an entire rosary for each one of her family members - daily. We love you Mother (Ita)! Rosary will be 7:30pm, Tuesday, April 11, 2017, at Our Lady of Assumption Catholic Church (4805 Byron). Funeral mass will be at 10am, Wednesday, April 12, 2017, at Our Lady of Assumption. Pallbearers will be David Edward Saucedo, David Edward Saucedo II, Mauricio Alberto Saucedo, Joe Morales, Salvador Regalado, and Daniel Regalado.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.
May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
