Alicia Gonzalez Ortiz
June 19, 1953
November 21, 2018
Daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mother and grandmother, Alicia G. Ortiz went to join her Heavenly Father on Wednesday, November 21, 2018.
Alicia was a beautiful person. Always willing to help others, she never felt that a sacrifice was too great. With a smile on her face and an abundant amount of energy, she was always there when needed. Her faith and strong belief in God sustained her through her illness and rough spots in life. Never one to judge and a continual optimist, she was able to see the goodness in others, believing in them and what they could accomplish. Easy to make friends, she cherished the friendships made over her lifetime.
Second to her faith in God, family was the most important thing in her life. She enjoyed visiting with all her family members, providing unconditional love and support whenever needed.
Her most treasured moments were spent with her children and grandchildren. She loved to attend her grandchildren’s sports activities, cheering them on in a loud and boisterous voice, sometimes to the embarrassment of her grandchildren.
Reading passages from the Bible, drinking a cup of coffee, sitting in her backyard or watering her plants, Alicia found time to enjoy life and appreciate each moment.
Family members who welcomed her into God’s Kingdom, include, her father and mother, Ladislao and Marina Gonzalez; her sisters, Carmen Saenz and Leticia Padilla; and her brothers, Ladislao, Ernesto and Chris Gonzalez.
Those left behind to mourn her passing, in anticipation of one day being together again, include her husband of 42 years, Jaime; her daughter, Faith Nieto and husband Mark of Boerne, Texas along with their children: Andres, Ariella, and Ava; and son Marcos Antonio Ortiz and his wife, Giovanna from San Antonio, Texas.
Also, surviving her are her sisters: Gloria Camacho and husband Alex; Velma Zambrano and husband Jose; Antonia Ybarra and Sandra Reyes and husband Daniel, and Brother-in-Law Robert Padilla, all from Del Rio; and her sister Rosa Maria Lopez and husband Juan from Weatherford, Texas. Numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews also survive Alicia.
Although, painful to lose someone you love, Alicia would want everyone to rejoice and celebrate that she is now Home, continuing to watch over her family.
