Obituary for Mercedes Lavarias Acosta

On April 6, 2019, Mercedes Lavarias Acosta, surrounded by her family in Lodi, passed away to join the Lord. Mercedes was born in Balungao, Pangasinan, Philippines on September 24, 1927 to Leonardo and Teodora Lavarias.
She is survived by her son, Ray Acosta (Lita), daughter, Delie Bartlett (Jim). Grandchildren Michelle Brassesco (Nick), Jeff Bartlett (Noemi), Jennifer Loper (Mike), Jason Bartlett (Kelly), Valerie Solorzano (Luke), John Acosta (Meah) and Lisa Acosta. Great grandchildren Dominic, Gianni and Lucca Brassesco; Dylan and Kiara Bartlett; Jayden and Jagger Bartlett; Maximo and Mason Loper; Ava and Noah Solorzano.
Mercedes was preceded in death by her husband Maximo Acosta, children Adelia and Albert Acosta, sister Encarnacion Meriales, brothers Rafael, Pedro, Emilio, Mariano, Juan, Ernesto and Ignacio Lavarias.
Mercy worked for 27 years at Hewlett-Packard in Palo Alto before moving to Lodi in 1987 to become owner/operator of Hammer-99 AM/PM convenience store until 2005 when the city of Stockton took over the land.
Mama Mercy had the heart of a saint. Her love was unconditional, and always worried about others and never herself. She taught her family that love will conquer all; a true example of a child of God. In 91 years of life on this earth, Mama Mercy took care of her family (all 5,732 of them haha). Even in her last breath, she was making sure all the kids were taken care of. We may have lost one of the greatest souls, but heaven is now rejoicing with what they’ve gained.
