Antonia Villagran (Tonia) Juarez Obituary
June 13, 1936 - November 6, 2017
Antonia (Tonia) Villagran Juarez passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Monday, November 6, 2017 at the age of 81. She was born on June 13, 1936 in San Antonio, Texas to Luis and Piedad Villagran, the 7th of 8 children.
Tonia took great pride and joy in caring for her family. She mothered six beautiful children with her husband, Oscar Juarez, whom she married on June 4, 1954.
She is survived by her sisters, Juanita Maldonado and Flora (Roger) Maley and sister-in-laws Emma Cantu, Olga Juarez and Minerva Juarez; as well as her children, Ruben (Corie) Juarez, Susan (Tino Jr) Duran, Irene (Joe) Sanchez, David (Keri) Juarez, Ronald (Debbra) Juarez and Ernest (Kim) Juarez. She is also survived by her beloved 18 Grandchildren and 9 Great-Grandchildren.
Tonia lived a fulfilling life in which her kindness was always present. She was loved by all who knew her. Mom, Grandma, G-Ma, Tia Tonia, Toni will be sorely missed. She possessed a quiet strength but was not afraid to speak out when necessary. Her tender kiss and gentle hug will be missed, but never forgotten. In her working years she was a talented seamstress and baker. She worked for Southwest Research Institute for many years as their pastry chef before retiring in 1996. In retirement she enjoyed many things, but treasured most the simple things and moments such as spending time with family. Tonia enjoyed traveling with her sisters, loved sewing and baking for family and friends, attending her family's many many sporting events (she was a NSID Gold Card Member – 3 generations)and never missing a chance to cheer on her favorite team, the San Antonio Spurs.
She will now rest alongside her beloved husband. Today our hearts ache and cry with sorrow, but there will be a time when they'll do so with joy. Until then, we'll be holding fast to our hope for that day.
Visitation will be held at Castillo Mission Funeral Home on Sunday, November 12, 2017 from 3pm to 9pm with a Rosary to be recited at 7pm. A formal procession will depart the funeral home on Monday, November 13, 2017 at 9:30am for a 10am Funeral Mass at Holy Rosary Catholic Church with interment to follow at San Fernando Catholic Cemetery II.
In lieu of flowers, online memorial donations will be accepted at the Hearts Need Art Organization website: give.classy.org/inmemoryofantoniavjuarez.
