Antonia Josefina Flores
February 7, 1927 - November 29, 2016
Antonia J. Medrano Flores passed away peacefully at home, Monday, November 28, 2016. Antonia was born February 7, 1927 in San Antonio, Texas to Jose and Manuela Medrano. She was raised in Eagle Pass, Texas, until 1964 when she married the love of her life, Sixto Flores. Antonia then joined Tito in Caldwell, Idaho. Together they ran the Labor Camp Store (la tiendita del campo). Antonia started working at the age of thirteen and continued to do so until her health prevented her from working at the age of 74.
Doña Tonia is survived by her three daughters, Dolores (Mario) Peña, Elsa Flores and Aurelia Flores, ten grandchildren, Melinda (Benjamin) Deckert, Mario Peña, Jr., Marcos Peña, Michael Peña, Cecilia Flores, Sixto (Lisa) Flores, Amanda (Adan) Montes, Cheryl Ramirez, David (Mercedes) Pesina, Andrew (April) Pesina, Sofia Dueñas and numerous great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, an infant son, Alberto and her beloved husband, Sixto Flores.
Antonia's passion was cooking for her family and working and mentoring many of her customers throughout her life at the Caldwell Labor Camp Store (Farmway Village). Her kindness in extending a helping hand to those who faced hardship is a quality that will never be forgotten, along with her and Tito's famous homemade chorizo and barbacoa.
Our family would like to extend a huge thanks to St. Al's Cancer Center and St. Al's Hospice for all their help and attention. A special thanks to her dear friend and caregiver Alicia Pedraza who will forever be a part of our family. And a last and most important thank you to the Lord for our mom and grandmother who was our heaven here on earth.
"Doña Tonia, we will forever hold you close to our hearts. Your memory lives on in our mind, standing behind the cash register with your apron on, ready to touch our lives."
A viewing for friends and family will be held Thursday, December 1, 2016 from 5-8pm at Flahiff Funeral Chapel in Caldwell. Rosary Recital will begin at 7 pm. Mass will be celebrated Friday, December 2, 2016 at 10:30 am at Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church in Caldwell. Interment will follow later at Maverick County Cemetery in Eagle Pass, Texas.
