Maria Santos Loredo Rangel was born in San Luis Potosi, Mexico on October 8th, 1934, where she lived until joining her parents in Baytown, Texas. During one of her frequent visits back to San Luis to see family, she met the love of her life Jose Cruz G. Rangel. Married in 1962 they remained at each other’s side for 55 years until his death on June 11, 2017. She joined him on September 11, 2021 just one month short of her 87th birthday.

Our mom was the glue that has always kept our family together by being a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother. A patient person, she always listened before asking questions that helped lead you to find the answers to your problems. Our mother was our greatest supporter who demonstrated it by her willingness to drive us to countless dance practices and recitals.

Maria Santos was a member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church for over 45 years. She was an active member of the Sacred Heart Society, Guadalupanas, Choir and a Cursillista. Her church friends were a second family. She enjoyed the time she spent making tamales, helping host enchilada dinners and participating in the annual church bazaar. She cherished spending time with all her church friends.

Maria Santos is preceded in death by her parents, two brothers and two sisters and husband. She is survived by her four children, Elizabeth R. Vera (Xavier Vera), Martha Elena Rangel, Oscar G. Rangel (Gloria B. Rangel), Maria Antonia Rodriguez (Uriel A. Rodriguez) and seven grandchildren Gabriel Rangel,

Victoria Vera, Nicolas Vera, Olivia G. Rangel, Carlos J. Rangel, Andres Rodriguez, and Sara Rodriguez.
