Beatriz Ortiz “Tiche” was born in Purepero, Michoacán in 1957 to Aurora Ortiz and Benito Ortiz. She grew up with her 7 sisters and 4 brothers. In 1985, she moved to Pittsburg, CA. She worked as a cook for many years but her love for sewing, music and poetry is what she loved the most. She was a member of the Sociedad Guadalupana.
Beatriz’s greatest joy was spending time with her son, Joseph Benito Lopez-Ortiz, her grandchildren Valerie, Fidel, Avelino, her mother Aurora, and her siblings.
Tiche is survived by her devoted son Joseph Benito, grandchildren, Valerie, Fidel, Avelino. She is also survived by her mother Aurora Ortiz and her ten sisters and five brothers.
Beatriz was a beautiful, loving, and tenacious person who always spoke her mind. She always knew how to make you feel welcome and will be greatly missed by all who were blessed to have known her!
