Ninfa (Nancy) Lopez, 77, of Waco, Texas entered into the Kingdom of Heaven on Saturday, March 14, 2020 surrounded by her loving family.

Ninfa was born in Waco, Texas on August 23, 1942 to Trinidad O. and Mercedes (Gonzales) Carbajal, Sr. Our Mom was an amazing mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt. She was an amazing woman of God. She touched so many lives on this earth. She gave so much support and love to children who had no hope at that time in their lives. We’re going to miss her, but it’s great to know that she’s home in the presence of God. Nancy was a wonder in the kitchen, and was known for her special coconut cream pie. She attended Waco Schools and received her G.E.D. from McLennan Community College. She met Marshall Lopez, Sr., the love of her life, resulting in a marriage lasting 60 years. She was a devoted and active member of Mighty Wind Worship Center.

She is preceded in death by her parents; daughter, Pauline Lopez; and brother, Benny Carbajal.

Nancy is survived by her loving husband Marshall Lopez, Sr., brothers; Trinidad Carbajal, Jr. and wife Donna, Pastor Joe Carbajal and wife Mary; sisters, Connie Pena, Juanita Pena, and Mary Carbajal all of Waco; her children, Pastor Marshall Lopez, Jr. and wife Evelyn, of Waco, Manuel Lopez and wife Dianne of Waco, Cyrus Lopez of Austin, Christopher Lopez and wife Trymecia of Waco, Rosie Rosas and husband Jeffery of Riesel, Joe Lopez of Waco, and Selena Lopez of Waco. She was a foster mother to many, many children, two of which still consider her as their mother, Tina Spencer and Crystal Lawrence. 13 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.

In an effort to follow CDC guidelines for preventing illness due to COVID-19 and City of Waco mandated orders, the viewing will be limited to close family only.

Nancy was my husband (Marcus) foster mother. We’ve been looking for her and Marshall Sr for so many years. We are so sad to hear of her passing. Please accept our condolences.

Sympathies to the family in the loss of Nancy. She was such a special person! Marshall and Nancy were one of the first families I licensed as foster parents and remained special to me. They were always willing to help in any way possible. I know she touched so many lives in so many ways and is now united with Pauline happy and healthy.
Love and prayers for you all.

I had the privilege of knowing the Lopez family while I was the counselor at Speegleville elementary. Ninfa and Marshall opened their home and their hearts to so many children. My thoughts and prays are with all of you in the loss of Ninfa.

My deepest heartfelt condolences to the Lopez family.
I met Mrs Lopez while being a volunteer at CHF.
Mrs Lopez was a dear lovely lady whom I enjoyed assisting. We would have some great conversations and always would’ve ask to watch The Price Is Right. May the Lord bring His peace to the family at this time. 🌹

Nancy and my mom worked together at the Ramada Inn years ago, two very hard working women/Moms. I lost my Mom last year a year ago this month. Please accept my Family’s Deepest Condolences during your time of loss.
