Obituary for Carmen Lozano

Carmen Lozano, age 93, passed away peacefully on May 1st at her home in Dixon. She was born in San Nicolas de Ibarra, Jalisco, Mexico on November 15, 1923. She was the 4th of 9 children. In 1942, she eloped with Rodolfo Lozano and the two spent their first years of married life in Mexico, where two of their six children were born. They left Mexico in 1946 and eventually settled in Brentwood where Rudy became a labor contractor.
Carmen helped the family business by cooking 3 meals a day for more than a hundred men. As the business grew, she and Rudy decided he needed to buy a truck to transport workers. She often laughed as she told the story about the day they purchased one. They had never spent that much money in their lives. Neither one could sleep that night, worrying about how they would pay it off. But after a year of sacrifice and hard work, the truck was theirs.
In 1964, the family moved to Dixon. Rudy became a farmer and Carmen devoted herself to raising her children and later enjoying nine grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. She was also an avid cook and gardener. Anyone who came to the house never left hungry. Anyone who knew Carmen, knew she would never turn down a chance to go to Cache Creek Casino. She loved card games, blackjack being her favorite. Some nights in the evenings at home, she would play penny poker with anyone who wanted to play.
Through her example, Carmen taught her children the value of family and of helping others. She often told her children, “Hoy para otros, manana para nosotros.” To her this meant, “help others now while you can; tomorrow you may be in need.”
Carmen is preceded in death by her husband, Rudy, and her grandson, Tony Lozano. Left to honor and remember her are her children: Vita (Ivar) Simonsen, Alice Lozano, Bill (Deanna) Lozano, Armando Lozano, Margaret Lozano-Williams, and Yoli (Paul) Hickman; her grandchildren: Derek, Nicole, Ryan, Gina, Vanessa, Nicholas, Chase, Evan, and eight great-grandchildren. Visitation services will be on Mon., 15th 6-8pm with the Rosary at 7pm and the mass on Tues., 16th at 10am. Both services will be held at St.Peters Church in Dixon, reception to follow.
Carmen touched many lives with her sweet disposition, laughter and loving manner. She was deeply loved and will be deeply missed by her family and friends. Carmen will be leaving behind a lot of special memories and traditions that will be carried on.
