Because of you, she was able to physically heal and thrive, which enabled her to do what she enjoyed - love her family and give to her community. These fueled and gave strength to a woman petite in stature, but bold and strong in heart. Her most proudest moments, in addition to spoiling and spending time with her grandchildren; sharing in the daily lives of her nieces and nephews; and memberships in the local community, church and Federal Government organizations. She was instrumental as an active member and leader. In addition, she pioneered and established civic events that positively impacted San Antonio. Some of these events have remained. Once settled and establishing roots in San Antonio, mom immersed herself in the opportunities the city offered. She also immersed herself in the rich Tejano and festive culture that San Antonio is renowned for internationally. Her mantra was simple - love and compassion for others. Her physical presence will be missed. However, her spirit and legacy will live on forever in each of us. Heaven has gained a treasured soul. She will live forever in the hearts of her family and friends. We love you.
