Rudecinda “Cindy” LoBuglio
Rudecinda “Cindy” LoBuglio was born March 28, 1934 in San Pedro, Calif. She attended San Pedro High School, graduating in 1952 with high honors. She was an eighth-generation native Californian, and a descendant of the Sepulveda family. She has done extensive research on early California and family history. She has written a number of genealogical articles, and was editor of the “Spanish-American Genealogist” publication for many years. She was honored to be a guest speaker at the 1980 World Conference on Records, in Salt Lake City, delivering papers on pre-statehood California and northeast Mexico.
Cindy served as a Janesville School Board member for many years. She spent much of her time working with the youth of the community through volunteering at Janesville school, and being a leader for Camp Fire Girls. She was a member of many organizations including: The Augustan Society, The Boone Family, Los Californianos, San Pedro Historical Society, Lassen County Historical Society, Janesville Historical Society and The California Native Daughters.
She enjoyed doing historical research and crafts of all kinds, and she ran a craft mail order business which gave her the opportunity to participate in the planning and decorating for many local weddings. Cindy was full of life, and she liked people. She could always find good in anyone, and was constantly defending those being criticized by her overly pessimistic spouse.
This beautiful and intelligent life came to an end Aug. 7, 2011, following a two-year struggle with Alzheimer’s. She now goes to rejoin her parents William and Gloria Lawrence, her daughter Darlene Drissel, and son Joseph Sumner LoBuglio.
