Obituary

Lupe Aguirre Virgen passed away surrounded by family on February 12, 2020, at the age of 87 years old in Waco, Texas, to enter the presence of her Lord and Savior.

Lupe was born to Francisco and Beatriz Aguirre in Coleman, Texas, on January 6, 1933. She has resided in Waco since 1962 where her husband served as pastor of Primera Iglesia Bautista for 53 years. She married Armando G. Virgen on May 1, 1955.

Lupe served as a devoted pastor’s wife for 60 years and mother to her four children. She was the rock and matriarch of her family, an amazing, beautiful, fiercely loving, and strong woman. She was a servant leader with a heart full of love and compassion for her family and those she served through her church. She was an amazing cook, remembered by many for making delicious home-made tortillas, pies, and tacos, and would never let anyone go hungry. She loved angels, garage sales, a glamorous lipstick, and flowers, with roses being her favorite. Although she struggled after contracting the West Nile Virus and Alzheimer’s during the last years of her life, she repeatedly defied the odds with her strength, fighting until the end, and never forgetting her children and her husband - the love of her life. Lupe was an inspiration to so many and will be dearly missed. She is finally free from suffering and at home rejoicing with her Savior.

She is survived by her husband of almost 65 years, the Rev. Armando G. Virgen; her four children, Armando Virgen Jr. (Ruth) of Temple, Texas, Cynthia Patena (Luiz) of Waco, Texas, Debbie Shores (Dexton) of San Antonio, Texas, and Reuben Virgen (Rosemary) of Bethany, Oklahoma; 12 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren, six great-great-grandchildren; and five brothers, Frank Aguirre, Fred Aguirre, Jesse Aguirre, Agustin Aguirre, and Armando Aguirre.

Family Visitation and a time of sharing memories will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday at Primera Iglesia Bautista in Waco, Texas. Viewing will be until 2 p.m. Sunday at OakCrest Funeral Home.

A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will take place at Primera Iglesia Bautista at 10:00 a.m., on Monday, February 17.

Grandsons serving as pallbearers are Armando Virgen III, Orlando Virgen, David Shores, Luiz Patena Jr., Daniel Shores, Isaac Virgen, Michael Virgen, and great-grandson, Armando Virgen IV.

The family expresses appreciation to her caretakers at The Atrium of Bellmead and Kindred Hospice for their loving care.

I want to express our heartfelt sympathies to the entire family. I know it has been many years since we have seen Aunt Lupe.
None the less we are sorry to hear of her passing. I talked to Debbie briefly this afternoon. I'm enjoying looking at the pictures
that have been posted. Aunt Lupe was a beautiful lady. My memories of her are of her spoiling all of us. We were no small group
of cousins when we were together.
I'm sure heaven has gotten another angel. I didn't realize how much we have in common until I read the obituary. I love angels,
and flowers. I tend to the flower garden at church as well as my own at home. I recently made a Memorial Garden at church
after Mom passed away. I will plant something special in it in honor of Aunt Lupe.
May God Bless you and put his loving arms around you during this difficult time.
Hugs and Love,
Brenda Holland, Sandra Brown, Glenda Skogg, & Steve Lucero
