Guadalupe N. Arreguin, 67, entered into eternal rest, Sunday, January 28, 2024

Guadalupe retired from the Laredo Police Department as a Fingerprint Technician after 28 years of service. She was also the first female civilian in her department. During this time, she also worked as a Juvenile Detention Officer with the Webb County Juvenile Detention Center and as a TSA inspection officer. She worked two or three jobs at the same time to fulfil her dreams of building her rental business. Her hard work paid off and she managed to build a very successful rental business. Through the years with this business and her working career, she has touched many people’s lives with her wonderful, sweet spirit. She leaves many examples to her loved ones on how to work hard and play hard.

Guadalupe was humble, kind, and a generous person that loved her fur babies from chickens, dogs, goats, cattle, and horses. She also enjoyed watering her garden at night and watching her favorite novelas with her sister Beatriz. Guadalupe really enjoyed the time she spent driving her grandkids to their sports practices and games. She cheered for them during baseball games, swim meets, and piano recitals. She loved to enjoy the serenity at her ranch as she fed the fish in the fishpond. She enjoyed the fresh air, wonderful sunrises and sunsets to unwind from the fast-paced life in the city. Guadalupe may be gone but never forgotten. She lives in our hearts and will forever be present in us a we close our eyes and listen for her spirit to touch our souls.

She is preceded in death by her spouse, Porfirio Arreguin III, mother, Maria Del Refugio Negrete and father, Federico Negrete.

She is survived by her husband, Oscar Padilla; children, Porfirio (Claudia) “Pilo” Arreguin IV, Andres (Christina) Arreguin and Celina (Jeffery) Reiman; sisters, Norma Negrete, Dora (Jorge) Vasquez, Federico (Gabriela) Negrete, Beatriz Negrete and Josefina (Doug) Durham; grandchildren, Alexis, Lauren, Emma, Andrew, Aaron, Aiden, Colton and Rozalin; as well as nieces, nephews, other family members and friends that will greatly miss her.

The family will be receiving condolences on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, in the Angelus Chapel at Fred Dickey Funeral & Cremation Services from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.  A rosary will be recited at 7:00 pm. Funeral services will be Wednesday, February 7, 2024 from the funeral home to St. Patrick Catholic Church.

To my comadre, Lupita: our granddaughters will miss you. They will always remember you fondly having chickens, cats, dogs, goats and being so gentle with God’s small creatures.They always looked forward to visiting you at the ranch. I know you are at peace and in the loving arms of our Lord. You carried the cross until He could not bear to see you like that. You have earned your place in Heaven. People that knew you have many nice things to say about you and we are all blessed to have known you. May your spirit live in the hearts of our girls eternally. Rest in peace, Comadre.

I knew Mrs. Arreguin through a mutual friend. The few times that I was in her company was a pleasure. My deepest condolences to her family.

Heaven became a brighter, more aspirational place to be when this beautiful woman's soul was welcomed into it. Lupita was my parent's next-door neighbor for nearly 40 years. Despite her law enforcement career & other occupations, her devotion to her own family, plus all other activities she enjoyed, Lupita always found time to reach out to my widowed & ailing mother --always bringing some of her delicious home cooking! (Despite having now joined all the saints in heaven, Lupita was a devil in the kitchen! I mean YUM!!) I've never seen Lupita without a smile on her face, Jesus' light always shining through her eyes. Such kindness, selflessness, generosity, and dedication to all things good is so rare. It has been a privilege and a huge blessing to have known this woman as both a neighbor and friend. Our sincerest sympathies & condolences to Lupita's family, with deepest Love and appreciation. May God grant y'all peace during this difficult time. We look forward to being reunited with Lupita one fine day!
