Dominga V. Ramirez

19 noviembre , 193318 julio , 2020

Dominga V. Ramirez passed away peacefully at home on July 18, 2020 surrounded by her family members. She is preceded in death by her parents, Margarito and Celedonia Vasquez; children, Cathy Spears, David Ramirez; sons-in-laws, Tony Limon and Roland Foster; daughter-in-law, Carmen Ramirez; siblings, Margaret Herrera, Felipe Vasquez and Raymond Vasquez.

Dominga is survived by children, Teri Ramirez, Mary Alice Limon, Joe Ramirez, Julie Foster, Eva Ramirez, Patty Casares (Sam) and James Ramirez (Laurie); as well as numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews; brothers, Tony Vasquez (California) and Socorro Vasquez (Florida).

Dominga was the heart and soul of her family. Her legacy would be her strong faith, as well as, being the true epitome of hard work. Not only was she passionate about her gardening, she had a deep faith and love for her church. She was a member of the Guadalupana Society of St. Julia Catholic Church where she would be found volunteering for the Sunday morning kitchen group or running the Cake Walk for the annual church festival, which became an annual fun project for the whole family for 20 years.

One of her life long dreams was fulfilled when she traveled with the family to Rome, Italy. She visited the Vatican City and was fortunate to view Pope Benedict XVI. She was overjoyed when she attended Mass at Saint Peter’s Basilica and toured numerous facilities including the infamous Sistine Chapel. Other adventures included camping with family and trips to Las Vegas, California, Michigan, Missouri, the Grand Canyon, and Cancun.

Common during her era, family obligations cut her education short. Later in life her determination would steer her to pursue and earn her GED. She would later become a Department Supervisor for the Austin State Hospital (ASH) and retired from ASH after 23 years tenure.

Despite her large family, she always made time for everyone. She always provided strong support, much love and never stopped encouraging her family to give it their all in life. She always put her children’s needs before herself. She understood the importance of voting and would call to remind her children to do so.

She was an avid Texas Rangers baseball fan. During her favorite player’s era (Pudge Rodriguez), she'd watch the Ranger games faithfully and knew all players by name. She attended a few games in Arlington and an exhibition game in San Antonio. Her love of the ballfield would extend to watching her children play softball and could often be seen cheering them on.

She will always be remembered because she touched the lives of many with her giving spirit, infectious smile and wonderful sense of humor. Visitation 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm on Friday, July 31, 2020 at Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home with Recitation of the Holy Rosary to begin at 7:00 pm.

Mass of the Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 am on Saturday, August 1, 2020 at St. Julia Catholic Church.

Interment will follow at Assumption Cemetery.

To my cousin's, my heart is saddened of the passing of your mom (Tia ) I was not as close to her as I wish I could have been but I know she was a very special person to us all. I could see in each of her kids her own personal touch. She will be missed but lives in our hearts. I want to apologize to my cousins that we could not attend her services. All our thoughts, prayers and love go to all of you.

I am heartbroken, as my mother's relatives diminish in life, it brings tears to my heart. Mrs. Ramirez, was my mother's cousin (Mary Herrera Lopez). I pray that part or all of the family remains in my life with a hello or a note in the years to come. I know that's what my mother would want, and Mrs. Ramirez too, for us to keep in touch.

My sincerest thoughts, memories and prayers during this sad time. My condolences to all of the family of Dominga Ramirez.

Dominga, you will be missed by so many. You were always so kind to me and my family and my mom always considered you her Comadre till the day she died. I feel like I have known you my whole life. You have a large beautiful family and I feel they are still my family and even though Laurie’s parents are not together I have always stayed close to this Ramirez family and Mary Alice will always be like a sister to me. God bless each of you in this time of grief !

We send our deepest condolences to the Ramirez family with the loss of our sweet, long-time neighbor. She was a blessing to my mother, who looked to her as an ideal mother to her beautiful children. Mom praised her for instilling courtesy, manners and devotion to family values in her children. God has gained a brilliant star. May she rest in eternal peace.

Growing up on Bengston and Kay, we were more than just neighbors, we were Family. The Ramirez were a big Family to begin with , but ‘Minga’ didn’t mind having the neighbors kids in her home as well. She was a loving person. I adore her. The picture of her, that inviting smile, I just want to hug her. I know her babies were waiting for her. Rest now.♥️♥️♥️

She was my mother’s cousin. As an adult & living in the same city, I had the opportunity to get to know her better. She was always welcoming of me in her home & I never felt like I lost a connection with her through my seldom visits. She had a smile that could light up a room.

As we all grow older & our parent’s immediate families grow smaller, I hope & wish to keep contact with my 2nd, 3rd cousins & their families.

I am privileged to have met this beautiful lady, “Minga”.

My deepest condolences to all the family.
