Our loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother was a founding parishioner of St. Phillip of Jesus Catholic Church. She had a strong faith and took great comfort in her novenas. She was also a member of the Young Senior Citizens group and The Old Timers group in the East End.
She enjoyed music, dancing, and gambling. She was an avid Houston Rockets and Texans fan. She was the life of the party and enjoyed nothing more than laughing and joking with friends and family.
According to her great granddaughter, Madelyn, she was a rainbow in her heart that lit up her day. From her youngest granddaughter; Danielle, she will always be in her heart and will love her forever.
A kind, generous, thoughtful, funny, loving, respectful, happy, amazing, happy-go-lucky mom, mother-in-law, and grandma will be greatly missed by everyone.
