To celebrate the life of Gloria, a visitation with family and friends will begin at 6:00 pm, and a Rosary service at 7:00 pm, on Thursday, May 16, 2019 at OakCrest Funeral Home.

Gloria was born on February 21, 1936 in Donie, Texas to Francisco and Merejilda (Santiago) Vasquez. She was known for her ability to make others laugh with her infectious smile. She also enjoyed cooking authentic Mexican food, always ensuring that her children and grandchildren were fed when they stopped by for a visit. Gloria was especially known for her delicious tamales that began a legacy the family plans to continue.

She is preceded in death by her parents, sons; Ricky Fajardo and Bobby Vasquez, and son-in-law Richard Ayala, sister, Thomasa Olivo, and four brothers; Ted, Johnny, Lorenzo, and Lino Vasquez.

Gloria is survived by nine children including; Mary Ayala, Armando Fajardo and wife Blanca, Jeannie Fajardo, Sylvia Castillo and husband Richard, Pat Rodriquez and husband Frank, Ernest Fajardo, Johnny Vasquez, Robert Vasquez and wife Elizabeth, and Ismael Vasquez and wife Melissa.

The family extends a special thanks to the staff at Providence Hospice, Debbie McCoy (FNP), mom’s granddaughters, Leti and Leslie, and mom’s daughters-in-law, Blanca, Elizabeth, and Melissa for their loving service towards our mom.

Lamento mucho su perdida . Aunque no tengo el gusto de conocerlos, reconozco que la muerte de un ser querido es algo muy doloroso. Es por ello que deseo compartir con ustedes la esperanza que a mi mismo me ha consolado. Para el Dios Todopoderoso la muerte de alguien es como si estuviera en un profundo sueño del cual el pude despertar (1 Tes 4:14). Ademas promete que lo hara (Juan 5:28,29). Saber esto me ha dado esperanza y por ello la comparto en este momento difícil para ustedes.
