Maria Kleitz Obituary
Maria Elena Kleitz, born on November 30, 1940 in San Antonio, TX, went to be with the Lord on February 22, 2014 at the age of 73. She is preceded in death by her loving husband of 25 years, Charles F. Kleitz; parents, Jose and Julia Cortez; siblings: Joe Cortez Jr., Richard Cortez, Anita Mendelsohn and Charles Cortez. She leaves behind her children, Christopher Lerma, Edith Annette Jones and Edward Romero; brothers, Albert Cortez and Ralph Cortez; sister, Cecilia Cortez Garibay; grandchildren: Erika, Edward Aaron, Chris, Devin, Sierra, and Phoenyx; several great-grandchildren, extended family and friends. "Nana" as she was affectionately known, was a consummate caregiver by nature and her thoughtfulness extended to everyone she met. Her love of music was passed down from her parents and in turn to her children and other members of this musically-talented family. She also loved dancing and was a professional dancer for a few years. She attended Sacred Heart Catholic School where she was blessed with life-long friendships that have stood the test of time. Maria was a talented cook and baker to the delight of her family. She was an avid Spurs fan and overall had a great zest for life. Her presence in our lives will be greatly missed. Visitation will be held on Friday, February 28, 2014 from 5:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. with the recitation of the Rosary at 7:00 P.M. in the Hillcrest Chapel. Family and friends will gather again on Thursday, March 6, 2014 at St. Brigid's Catholic Church for 10:00 A.M. Mass followed by interment at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery where she will be laid to rest with her beloved Charles. Arrangements with
