Fidelia "Fide" Guerrero

Fidelia “Fide” Guerrero, 74, of San Angelo passed away on Friday, August 19, 2022.

Memorial services will be at 7:00 PM Tuesday, August 23, 2022 at Bethel Assembly of God with Rev. Israel Flores, pastor, officiating. Arrangements are under the direction of Robert Massie Funeral Home.

Mrs. Guerrero was born on August 11, 1948 in Acuña, Mexico to Pablo and Olivia Guerrero.  “Fide,” as most people knew her, started working at a very young age in the cotton fields of West Texas & in Pocatello, Idaho, her favorite, where she worked picking potatoes.

At about the age of 29, Fide began her career as a custodian for the San Angelo Independent School District at Glenmore Elementary. She stayed there for approximately 12 years until 1990 when she was diagnosed with Leukemia. After her battle with Leukemia from which she was healed, she went back to the SAISD and picked up right where she left off by taking care of Lakeview High School. Fide retired with 23 years of service.

Fide then took on the challenge of raising grandchildren, and she would actually demand to babysit. Sometimes she would ask that the children be allowed to spend the night, even with several cleaning jobs to do. She managed as many as four part-time cleaning jobs, but you could never tell due to her always being on the move. She especially liked cleaning the offices at Surety Title & Concho Bail Bonds. Her favorite times with family included hanging out & eating, and she was known in the family circle for her guizo. Everybody knew her as the “Enforcer” of the family.

In 2018, Fidelia was diagnosed with on-set dementia. Early on, she began forgetting little things, such as where she was going, speed limits, and what she liked to eat. She never forgot a few stories from long ago, such as her healing from Leukemia, but more and more as time went on, she began to lose her memory. Although many “Docs” tried to encourage her to take her meds & eat right, she would always say they didn’t know what they were talking about. That was the dementia talking.

A testament to her undeniable work ethic, Fide continued working three part-time jobs up until just before her decline. She was a great mother, grandmother, sister, and friend and will be missed by those she loved so well.

Fide was preceded in death by a granddaughter, Katrina Hernandez, a sister, Martha Hernandez, and a brother, Eliseo Guerrero.

She is survived by four sons, Mike Hernandez and wife Elisa, Nick Hernandez, James Hernandez and wife Maria Ramirez, and Joe Lee Ynojosa and wife April, all of San Angelo; three sisters, Mary Arnold of Pocatello, Idaho, Hermelinda Robles and husband Reggie and Dalila Caballero, both of San Angelo; four brothers, Paul Guerrero and wife Diane, Joe Guerrero and wife Virginia, Ruben Guerrero and wife Lindell all of Pocatello, Idaho, and Oscar Guerrero and wife Debbie of San Angelo; 10 grandchildren, Joshua, Kelsey, Nichole, Elizabeth, Mackenzie, Dustin, Cody, Diamond, Esme, J.J., and Jocelyn; and two great grandchildren, Natalie Martin and Logan Hernandez.
