Obituary of Lydia Perez

Lydia Perez passed away surrounded by family at her home in Brighton CO on June24,2023 at the age of 78.  Lydia was born on Sept. 20th, 1944.  She was born in Brighton, Co to Fidelia and Ray Quintana.  Lydia was a hardworking loyal person who loved to sing karaoke and dance with her friends and family.  She enjoyed going out dancing and could tear up the dance floor while making everyone laugh around her.  Anyone who knew Lydia knew her love for flowers, being with her sisters and brothers, dancing the night away or just enjoying time with the grandkids.  People also knew her as the little feisty one that was quick to say she would punch you out raise her little fist up if you forgot she was 4’11” AND A HALF don’t ever forget the half.   

Lydia is survived by her husband of 52 years Alex Perez, daughters Rachel Quintana and Debbie Perez, two sons Michael and Gilbert Quintana, 11 grandchildren and 5 Great-grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her father and mother Fidelia and Ray Quintana, Brother Ralph Quintana, Sister Carol Martinez and grandson Anthony.
