Alice Sánchez Turner
Aug 22, 1931 - Feb 01, 2024
Born in Los Angeles, California to Angel Obregón Sánchez and Gertrude (Tórrez) Sánchez. Alice attended Oxnard High School and graduated with an Associate of Arts degree from Ventura College. She would later advance in her career by earning an Associate of Science degree in Accounting from Oxnard College. In addition to accounting, Mom loved music, art, and history. Mom began her career working at the Navy Exchange on the CBC base in Port Hueneme, where she worked to help provide for her family. That is where she met Dad and he managed to sweep her off her feet. Mom could not resist a man in uniform and finally gave into his charms. Shortly after they were married, they began a family. As a military spouse, she would follow him to Pennsylvania and Rhode Island before finally settling back down in Oxnard, CA. Mom had her hands full raising six children alone during Dad’s long deployments. While Dad was out serving God and country, we fell on tough times and were truly fortunate to have the support of a very loving family. We never had much, but Mom always sacrificed to make sure we had what we needed. To help support us, Mom worked from home providing bookkeeping services to small businesses. In 1973, she landed a temporary accounting job with the City of Oxnard. Her career lasted over thirty years and she made her mark working for the Oxnard Housing Authority and the Treasurer’s Office. She was active on several committees and the employee union. Mom was awarded for her community service creating opportunities for women and Latinos in the county. She enjoyed being politically active and also supported numerous charities with what little time and money she had. Many refer to her as the sweetest person they had ever met. Her kindness was never-ending and, like Grandma Gertie, many sought peace and refuge within her home. There were many good times and good memories made there as well: tamale making parties, holidays, birthdays, epic rock ‘n’ roll parties…Mom also enjoyed the simple things in life like BBQs and family get togethers at the park or the beach. She gave her all to her family her entire life. Her influence is reflected in all of us, especially in her grandchildren. She was so proud of them and loved watching them grow and thrive. Alice is preceded in death by her parents; brothers Raymond and Frank; and ex-husband William R. Turner. She is survived by her loving sister and brother-in-law, Yolanda and Patrick Woods, and sister- in-law Patricia Sánchez. She is also survived by her six children; 15 grandchildren; 19 great grandchildren with two on the way; many nieces, nephews, their families, and lifelong friends. Thank you, Mama, for teaching us about faith and sacrifice. Your quiet strength and love surround us now as we mourn. You will be with us forever, sorely missed, but never too far away. Services will be held at Santa Clara Mortuary & Cemetery located at 2370 North H Street, Oxnard, CA 93036. Visitation will be held at 10:00 a.m., Rosary at 11:00 a.m., Funeral Mass at noon with burial to follow. To plant Memorial Trees in memory of , please .

Mary Lou A. Gutierrez
Jul 08, 1941 - Feb 01, 2024
Mary Lou A. Gutierrez, 82, of Oxnard, passed away peacefully at home with her loved ones at her side early morning on February 1, 2024. After a long battle with multiple myeloma (bone cancer) she had a very sudden decline in her health. Her departure comes as a great shock and deep wound, and is greatly felt by her entire family and countless others who loved her deeply. Her family is profoundly saddened. Mary Lou was born July 8, 1941, to Maria Camacho Aguilar and Jose Julian C. Aguilar. She was born and raised in a small town called Numaran in Michoacán, Mexico. Mary Lou was very intelligent and had a passion for helping others. She began studying to become a nurse and worked as a doctor’s assistant. She was awarded a scholarship to further her education in nursing. In 1958, when she was 17, her family moved to Tijuana, Baja California. It was during that time she met John A. Gutierrez through family. She and John began courting through letters and John would frequently visit her in Tijuana. When she was twenty her father had decided that the family would go back to Michoacán. She called John to inform him that she would be leaving to go south with her family and John immediately drove to Tijuana to ask for her hand in marriage. They were married by court on December 4, 1961. Mary Lou valued her purity and John honored her. Even though John and Mary Lou were married they waited to consummate their marriage until they were married in a Catholic Church in Tijuana on June 30, 1962. Although she was in an unfamiliar place, in an unfamiliar country, she began to build a life and family together with her husband. In 1967 she attended school to learn English and received a certificate from Oxnard Evening High School for the completion of her English courses. She then went on and became a US citizen. She began working for the El Rio Processing and Smuckers, both strawberry packing houses, as well as Nabisco Del Monte (the chileria). After a few years, she became a supervisor (floor lady). She worked seasonally for the companies for 32 years. Mary Lou decided to take an early retirement to take care of her grandchildren and to travel with her family. In her later years, Mary Lou enjoyed going to Chumash with her Cousins Max, Stella, and Gloria. She enjoyed crocheting, making hand crafted clothes and hemming clothes for family and friends. She also enjoyed watching YouTube videos of her favorite Mexican bands, Spanish comedy shows and Sunday Catholic Mass with her sister Teresa. Mary Lou and her sister spent weekends together building an inseparable and admiring sibling bond. They understood each other when no one else did and leaned on each other in times of need. Mary Lou was preceded in death by her husband John A. Gutierrez. parents Maria C. and Jose C. Aguilar. She is survived by her sister Teresa A. Barajas, son Emilio, daughter Arlene, grandchildren Michellina, Paulina, Johnny, Yohan and Emilio II, and great grandchildren, Jayce and Zya and countless family members. Mary Lou was a loving, supportive and dedicated mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Her and her husband enjoyed taking their children and grandchildren on family outings, camping, and frequent trips to Las Vegas. We were truly blessed to have Mary Lou as a mother, grandmother, great grandmother, Tia, Nina, and friend. She embodied the best of qualities, unconditional love, strength of spirit and unending generosity that could be seen in her care for all of her family members and the family pets. You could always count on her to have fresh homemade salsa, fresh homegrown chiles to spice up any meal, and a warm meal on the table. She was big hearted, vibrant, and radiated light. She accepted everyone with an open heart, open arms, and a perpetual smile. She had immense passion for her family, spiritual work, singing and dancing with her husband. She actively participated in the lives of her family whether it be family celebrations, sporting events, or awards assemblies. She made it a point to be present in all her family's successes and accomplishments. She taught her grandchildren to be generous, caring and to respect one another. Her innate ability to nurture and comfort her family members was angelic. Growing up, her grandchildren yearned for the weekends to spend with their grandparents. Grandma’s house was home to many. In loving remembrance of Mary Lou A Gutierrez, All funeral services will be held at Santa Clara Cemetery, 2370 North “H” Street in Oxnard. Services will begin Wednesday, February 28th at Santa Clara Cemetery Chapel, viewing will begin at 5 pm with the rosary to immediately follow at 6 pm. The Interment Ceremony will be held on Thursday, February 29th at 10 am.
