Community mourns sudden passing of 10-year-old girl

It is with great sadness and heartbreak that I share the news of the passing of one of my students at Grant in West Contra Costa Schools. Guadalupe, or Lupita to those of us who know and love her, was 10 years old. Her passing was not COVID related. The family is in need to cover the costs involved with a funeral. They have a GoFund Me page; however, cash donations would be beneficial and faster. I have numerous items by Avon that have been given to me by my mom to sell as a form of a fundraiser for the family. It’s the season of giving so please stop by if you’re nearby to buy the items, which you can give as gifts. Please pray for the family and us for losing a beautiful member of our community.

Community members are promoting a GoFundMe fundraiser to support the family of a 10-year-old student at Grant Elementary who recently died.

Guadalupe Canchola, also known as Lupita, unexpectedly passed away from a heart attack the night of Saturday, Dec. 4, her family said. 

Grant Elementary Principal Farnaz Heydari is reaching out to the school community and beyond to urge support for the family’s fundraiser to pay for Lupita’s funeral. 

“Please pray for the family and us for losing a beautiful member of our community,” Heydari said.
