Francis Arellano was born April 4, 1923 in Rotan, TX, to Cosme and Julia Echavarria. She married Canuto Arellano Sr. on February 11, 1940 for 71 years until his death on May 31, 1996. Ama as family members lovingly knew her, was mainly a housewife and took very loving care of the family. While in Colorado City, she loved spending time and taking care of the family, farm and garden. While in Midland, she enjoyed shopping at her favorite plant nursery. She was a very devoted member of both St. Ann's Catholic Church in Colorado City and Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Midland, TX.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Canuto Arellano Sr. and sons Ruben Arellano and Roberto Arellano and grandson Ruben Arellano.

Ama was a devoted mother and grandmother. She was a loving and caring woman who devoted her life to God. Our mother never complained and always thought of others before herself. Our mother was out first and greatest love. She will always be with us be within her children.
I am leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give you isn't like the peace the world gives. So don't be troubled or afraid. John 14:27…
