Maria, widow of Virginio “Keno” surrounded by family passed away February 6, 2018 at age 93. There is so much to say about our mother but in a nut shell, she was “cool” yet a lady. A very devout Catholic, giving all her children an honest upbringing, always fair but non-apologetic.
Her sisters affectionately called her Mary Queen and she will always be remembered with love and maybe a few tears. It was truly an honor to know her. She leaves behind her children- Virgil (Maggie+), Aida (Fred), Elizabeth (John), Diana (Francisco), Thomas (Diana) and 6 grandchildren.
The De La Portilla family wishes to extend thanks to Embrace Hospice and Jeanette Kasper, R.N. for the professional loving care extended to our mother. Also, Father Larry of St. Ann’s Church, San Antonio for graciously visiting our mother on her death bed. Also, we thank all the Eucharistic Ministers from St. Paul’s Church San Antonio that weekly came to pray over our mother and administer Holy Communion.
In Lieu of flowers please donate to your favorite charity. Thank you and God Bless.
