Angelita Rivera

Angelita 'Angie' Maria Rivera returned to heaven at the age of 60 in Houston, TX on February 21, 2013 after a 20 year battle with breast cancer.
She was born in Harlingen, Texas on December 17th, 1952 to Juana Martinez.
Angie was a caring, generous person to all who were blessed to know her. She was an active member of St.Cecilia's Catholic Community and a passionate volunteer at Margo Marshall's School of Ballet.
Angie is predeceased by her mother. She is survived by her husband, Jesse Rivera, children, David Anthony Rivera and Angelica Cristina Franquera, sisters, Oralia Burks, Leticia Fretwell, and Estela Bowman, brother, Rudy Fernandez, nieces, Catherine Burks Finke, Alexandra Burks, and Lora Fernandez, nephew, Jonathan Burks, and the light of her life, her baby granddaughter, Lucille Maria Franquera.
In lieu of flowers, her family asks that contributions be directed towards MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital.
