Petra Chacon Lofton, 62 of Pecos, went to serve the Lord on April 4, 2021 surrounded by family in Odessa, Texas. Petra was born in El Paso, Texas to Francisco B. Chacon and Piedad C. Chacon on February 20, 1959. Petra was a life-long resident of Pecos. She always made sure to give praise to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as well as Our Virgen de Guadalupe. As a devout Catholic, Petra raised her children with love, and with Christian values.
A certified nurse’s assistant by trade, however, she would tell you that her main job in life was being a loving Mother. Her extended family also received the joy she would bring to all family gatherings. Petra also loved to decorate her home for Autumn and Christmas because she hoped that it would bring joy to her town, as many took family photos there.
Petra is preceded in death by her parents, Francisco and Piedad and infant daughter, Angelica. Petra is survived by her daughter, Michelle A Acosta (son-in-law David Jr.) of Odessa, Texas.
