Fermina was born Feb 11, 1923 in Jerome, Az, to Casimero and Maria Lozano. She was the oldest and last survivor of six brothers and sisters.

Fermina graduated from school in the 8th grade and started to work. She worked in Central CA in agriculture for many years as she grew up as a teenager. After getting married in 1946, she worked for HUNT’s Foods and also pick strawberries in the fields of Knotts Berry Farm. After moving to Fillmore in 1964, she worked for the Olga Company for a bit, then retired from working. 

Fermina then became more involved in the church of St. Francis of Assisi in Fillmore. Participating in clubs alongside two good friends, Rosa Morales and Emerita Real. They became known as the Golden Girls by one of the priests. So when they weren’t in club functions, they would be doing something together outside of the church. She was also the last of the Golden Girls to pass away.  

Fermina spent her last days surrounded by loved ones that will forever miss her.
