Dolores “Lola” Mejia

It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Dolores Mejia on August 17, 2022, at the age of 93 in Broderick, California. Dolores passed away peacefully with her beloved granddaughter Delia and son Richard by her side.

Dolores will be loving remembered by her children, Delia Reynoso, Moises Sencion (Carmen), Felix Mejia, Richard Mejia, Rosie Mejia and Dolores (Lucy) Mejia. Dolores will also be missed by her 15 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great-grandchildren, and her brother Claudio Bracamontes (Rosa).

Dolores was preceded in death by her loving husband of 65 years Felix Mejia; her sisters Luz Toscano and Rosa Garcia and her parents Bernadino Bracamontes and Simona Becerra

Dolores Mejia was born on April 1, 1929, in Zocalco, Jalisco, Mexico. She immigrated to the United States in the early 1940s where she met Felix Mejia. They married in the late 1940s in Las Vegas and then moved to Broderick. Surrounded by the family they settled down, built their home, and started their family.

Our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend will be dearly missed by all. We will never forget her cooking, beautiful smile, and the special love she shared with each of us.

The family wishes to send a Special “Thank You” to the staff of Mercy Hospice for their care, compassion, and assistance.

Family Memories

Growing up on our block, we knew everyone. Parents were always protective of all the kids. Yours or not. Mrs Mejia was one of our guardian angels as was Mr Mejia. Mrs Mejia worked with my mom at Del Monte Cannery. That is what bonded my mom with her. Neighbors but coworkers who cared and took care of each other. We grew up with Richard and Lucy. From time to time I still see them and it brings back memories of all the times we hung out with them. We will forever be family on the block. Deepest condolences and prayers to the Mejia Families.
