The angels called Wednesday, May 28, 2014, to take Carmen Luisa (DeLaCruz) Lobdell to her final destination to see her beloved Donald Keith Lobdell once again for eternity.
Carmen was born Aug. 27, 1924, in Indianapolis to Pedro and Alicia Delacruz. Carmen was one of eight children.

She had a love for all things simple and beautiful. She will be greatly missed by all.
