Purveyor of old wives' tales and eyebrow raising aliment remedies (WD-40 for joint pain relief, ponte Vicks y ya), Consuelo Castaneda Deleon (you knew her as Connie) took her last breath on Tuesday, July 23, 2019. Let us take comfort in knowing that “We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord” (2 Corinthians 5:8). Though she is gone, her spirit and memories continue to live through her 10 surviving children, lots of grandsons, two granddaughters, one sister, and extended family and friends.

Born January 21, 1944 (how could anyone forget, she made sure you knew it), I think it is safe to say she came into this world dancing. Her love of dancing continued even with her bum knee. Nothing a little Advil couldn’t fix. Connie liked what she liked, whether it be milk specifically from Braum’s or meat from Tom-Thumb. She was a strong, and fiercely independent woman. The transition from being fully independent to dependent was difficult for her. She persevered even through her last years.

Throughout her 75 years of life, Connie changed her mind often and spoke it openly. As wishy-washy as she could be sometimes, one thing remained constant – her love for you. Remember her hugs, her overwhelming Tabu perfume, her love of sweets, her sassiness and never forget how much she loved you.

To mom with love. Words can never express what's in my heart. I will only say a few words. I love you for the human being that you were. I love your strength, character, and love you gave me. I love you for keeping us together and not separating us as children. I love you for not giving up on us and giving me unconditional love. You persevered through many struggles in your personal life but yet sacrificed so much to be a good mother to us all and I love you for never giving up. I will always cherish your memories. You are gone from our sights but not my mind. You are the best mom ever. May you rest in peace and God have mercy on your soul.

From your loving son,

Hey grandma,
I know that where I find you is in my most fondest of memories. To when the moment I knew that me and my siblings open the front door to the laundry mat I will always remember this as the start of summer. From cleaning the floors and wiping down the machines, from walking to Family Dollar and then the Dollar Store next door. My memories of you will always be the greatest and the best. In these moments I will remember you, and all that you have done.

Dear Sweet Mom,

I miss you more then words can say, more than my heart can handle. The world is a little bit quieter without you. There's an emptiness that I just can't fill right now. Some days are a little harder then others, I wish I had more time with you.

I made a pot of beans the other day and I wish you could of shared a bowl with me. I also seem to be filling my fridge will lots of tortillas lately. You would be so proud of me. There are so many wonderful memories, I could fill a book.

Mom, you are one of the toughest persons I know. You were not always dealt the best cards. But you made the best out of every situation. You taught me to smile when I wanted to give up. You taught me that family comes first, and to always have fun. Mom thank you for teaching me that life is what you make of it.

My mind knows your in a better place, where there is no pain. I just wish I could explain that to my heart. I know I will see you again. I know you're dancing in heaven and I hope Joshua isn't giving you any trouble. I love you Mom. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you. Hugs and Kisses.

Hola Grandma,

I'm finally in high school grandma and I'm learning a little bit of Spanish too. You would be so proud! It's rough without you, I miss you everyday, you were the best. I remember you always bringing us ice cream from Braum's. And always going to my jujitsu classes and my swim classes. I will never forget you and how much you loved us. You always did so many things to let us know you cared. Thank you for all you did for me and everyone else. We love and appreciate you very much. I know I will see you again one day grandma. I hope you're looking down on us and smiling.

To my one & only Beautiful Momma!
Oh, how I miss your presence, your million dollar smile, and talking to you but I am grateful to God that you are no longer suffering and in pain. With that said, I know you are with our Lord in his eternal resting place. Momma, I want to start off with thanking you for I am confident of who I am because of all the love you gave me as a child and through-out my Adult life. Thank you so much for being with me for every one of my kids birth. You have given me so much -- taught me how to be the
best momma to my own four Beautiful kids/Adults now. They know how much you loved them by being so ever present in their lives and mine. The love you gave me, and my 4 kids, your grandkids, Juliano, Amanda, Thomas and Juztin will last a lifetime! The memories you left us will forever be treasured in
our hearts, mind and soul. Thanks for joining us in Church and being a part of our God inspired Life. Thank you for choosing my husband, J.C. Martinez, for me; You made a wise choice and thank you for telling him to just love me Unconditionally!
You are missed every day and will never be forgotten! I know you were hard on me at times -- it was to make me strong! You shared so many of your mistakes with me so that I would not make the same mistakes. Thank you for sharing and telling me how proud you were of me by not repeating them. I will forever be thankful; for it made me the person I am today because of your affection and unfailing love for me. Mother, you were like no other, always giving of yourself. You will forever hold a special place in my heart! For I know my grief is comforted by trust. Its only for awhile that we must part - I am so blessed by the memories you left me and my family. My soul aches at times but my faith in God keeps me strong, knowing and believing we will see each other again, in all eternity with our Lord and Savior! Until then, I'l see you again, Momma in the heavenly realms! Love always, Beatrice Martinez

Dear Mom

Here is my love letter to you. I know you won't get a chance to read it because you have finished your race. You have fulfilled your mission in life. What was that mission? I believe it was to teach all those around you how to love. I'm reminded of the story in the Bible when a student asked Jesus, which is the greatest commandment. Jesus answered, Love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself, Matthew 22: 36-40. Mom, you are the best example of this in my life.

Your greatest trait was your ability to love those around you. You had a Texas sized heart that was constantly giving to others. Your love was like the Mighty Mississippi River, long and wide. Being in your presence, I felt loved and I was happy. You've left an impression on me that will never be forgotten. I love you mom. I miss you. My heart will always honor you and hold a special place for you. My eyes long to see you again. Your hugs were priceless and all the kisses to follow were the icing on the cake. My DNA will always carry you forever and ever. No other person has had more influence in my life than you (and of course Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior). As I look up to the sky right now, I know just beyond the clouds in the heavenly realm that you are there. You are a truly remarkable woman and a one of a kind mother. God chose you to bring me into this world because he knew I needed to be loved in only the way that you could love me. I give thanks to God for you and the wonderful legacy that you leave behind. I will do all that I can to make you proud of me. And at the end of my journey, I know that you will be there to welcome me with a hug and many kisses.

Love is a hug and many kisses.

I love you Mom. And I can't wait to see you again.

Your son,

John Deases

Connie, thank you for who you are and never wavering to please someone. You did the best you could with what you had. At times you had much and other times much less. You made sure everyone had something to eat at your house, you never met a stranger and how you loved to dance. When your knee became a problem, it didn't stop you, it only slowed you down. I saw you grow in the word of God. I have learned that we never know a person until we know their past. Thank you for being such a loving person and thank you for always taking my side. Love you forever.

I spent a lot of time with my grandma. Over the years, I was able to pick up some tidbits about her that I will share with you now: 1) She had a major sweet tooth, she always carried candies. 2) She loved bold prints whether it was cheetah, leopard, or dalmatian. And if it were a combination of three then JACKPOT.
3) She was the only woman we know who could order a Big Mac from the Jack n the Box across the street. 4) She loved to talk. Whether it was to a stranger at the washateria she worked at or some random person at the stores we frequented together, or the movies. “No, grandma I don’t know what’s happening either, this is my first time watching too.” The only time she didn’t have time to talk to you was when her novellas came on. 5) She once described a cancer documentary that ended up being the show about crystal meth. It was only when she started describing the drugs the bald guy with the cancer was selling did we know it was Breaking Bad. 6)What she lacked in wealth she made up for in spirit, and I don’t mean the holy kind. Her sass and sarcasm have deeply influenced my own personality. From her signature eye rolls, caras, to the occasional middle fingers, she was one of the sassiest persons I know. 7) She loved to eat even if she choked on a Sonic pineapple slushie, a sandwich, a tamale, or a pizza (all of which happened). After the danger passed, I’d ask her if it was worth it to which she’d respond with a nod and at least she’d die full. 8) She loved flowers especially red and pink roses. She let me know this when I made the mistake of bringing her yellow daises. She wanted flowers when she was alive and could enjoy them because “how can I see them when I’m dead.” 9) You could tell who she was mad at by looking at the photos on her wall. She took your photo off so you would have visible proof. 10) I could do no wrong except when I didn't visit often.
I love her and I miss her.

Connie loved her flowers.
