Lupe Ontiveros, Who Portrayed Maids and Moms, Dies at 69.

Putting on a Spanish accent was part of acting for Ms. Ontiveros, who was born Guadalupe Moreno to Mexican immigrants in El Paso. Her parents owned two restaurants and a tortilla factory, gave their only child dance and piano lessons, and sent her to Texas Woman’s University, where she majored in psychology and social work.
…In “Selena,” released in 1997, Ms. Ontiveros was so credible as the killer of the Tejano star Selena Quintanilla, played by Jennifer Lopez, that for years the singer’s fans would hiss at her when she walked into a public place.
