Warren High Spanish teacher passes away
WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce, Editor

Warren High School teacher Mariateresa “Tess” Bobadilla died July 11 after battling a brain tumor. She was 49.

She was born March 30, 1964 in Mexico City and earned a BA in psychology and Spanish, and a Masters in education, from Cal State Dominguez Hills.

She “accomplished many things in her life,” friends and family said, but she was best known in Downey for being a Spanish teacher at Warren High for more than a decade.

She is survived by her daughters, Carla and Gabriela; sisters, Betty and Marilu; brothers, Michael and Alex; and boyfriend, Rick Rodman.

Her life will be celebrated this Friday, July 26, from 6-10 p.m. at First Baptist Church of Downey. A reception is scheduled for Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon, with a funeral service starting at 12:30. Graveside services will follow.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for monetary donations to help offset funeral costs. Donations can be made online at gofundme.com/3kjng4.
