Patricia G. Ibarra, 62, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend entered into the glory of her eternal life after a valiant battle against cancer on Tuesday, Dec. 25, 2012 at her residence surrounded by her loving family.

Pat, as she was affectionately known to all, was born in Mexico.

She became a naturalized citizen numerous years ago. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother who gave her all for her family. Pat was very proud of the fact that she returned to college in her later years and was able to obtain her Bachelor Degree in Education. Pat was a dedicated teacher for 13 years with the BISD until her illness forced her into early retirement.

Pat was deeply loved and will be profoundly missed by those fortunate to have known her.
