Anna Lovato


Our Hearts are broken, but our memories of Anna are glowing. Our beautiful Angel, Anna Lovato age 65 was called to be with her heavenly father on Sunday, May 3, 2020. Anna was preceded in death by her parents, Carlos and Maria Lovato; brothers, 

Carlos, Victor, and Larry Lovato; sisters, Ramona Padilla, Flora Armijo, Lorraine Alvarez. Anna is survived by brothers, Tony Lovato, Gilbert Lovato and wife, Marcella; sisters, Juanita (Jenny) Lovato, Eva Lucero and husband, Prospero, Christina Ortega, Barbara Chavez and husband, Charlie, Dora Pacias and partner, Lorenzo Candelaria; sister in-laws, Andrea Lovato, Elaine Lovato, Irene Lovato; brother in laws, Orlando Armijo, Rudy Alvarez.  Anna is also is survived by multiple generations of many loving nieces and nephews.  Our family was very blessed to have had such a special person to be a ray of sunshine in our lives.  She was the youngest of fourteen siblings and she felt that it was her responsibility to keep all her older brothers and sisters in line, so we all let her think that, and she loved that role.  We loved her and we each had endearing special nicknames for her.  She was loved by her family and we enjoyed spoiling her because of her special and loving nature.  People would say at times how lucky Anna was to have such a caring and loving family, little did they know that we were the lucky ones to have Anna in our lives.  Anna loved unconditionally and made everyone who crossed her path feel special.  She loved music and loved to dance.  She spent many of her recent years attending VSA (Very Special Arts.)  Anna loved attending family events and celebrations, which were many.  She loved attending all the local Sparx concerts.  Coloring books were also a major part of her hobbies.  She also had a vast collection of butterflies.  Anna would share some of her belongings with others as long as it did not include her diet cokes, candy, cup cakes and sweets.  Anna will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.  Our family is grateful for the in-home provider care she received from sisters, Jenny Lovato and Christina Ortega.  The Lovato family would like to acknowledge the support given to Anna from the caring staff at Alta Mira, Amber Hospice care and the dedicated respite care providers.
