Mary Elizabeth Samaritan Gullo Ramirez was born in Houston, Texas December 10, 1928. Mary passed away on March 20, 2021.

As a baby her family moved to New York City. They lived there until her mother, Rose Samaritan passed away and her family moved back to Houston.

Mary is predeceased by her husband of 32 years, Frank P. Gullo Sr. and her daughter Marilyn Gullo Ellison. She is survived by her remaining children, Frank P Gullo Jr., (Peggy), Carolyn Gullo Minor, Roseanne Gullo Wardell and Cathy Gullo Moreno. She had 10 grandchildren Matthew Gullo,(Rebekah), Danny Gullo, (Morgan), Felicia Boykin, (Bobby), Keith Pool, (Kristina), Scott Ellison, (Clint), Chad Ellison, Michael Lundie, (Nancy), Jennifer Stratis, (Chris), Joey Moreno, (Jules), and Tony Moreno, (Ruthie) and sixteen Great Grandchildren, Rylie, Weslyn, Finley, Foster, Jonathan, Chris, Micah, Eloise, Mia, Eli, Kyah, Ethan, Jade, Evelyn, Gracie and Julie.

She was also predeceased by her second husband of 27 years Ponciano Ramirez and his 5 children, Danny (deceased), Josephine, Sammy, Victor, and Jane.

Her passions included oil painting and playing bridge with the same friends over 50 years. She volunteered for several organizations including, Reading to the Blind, conceptualizing and running the first church Library at her local Parrish Saint Theresa located in Sugarland, Texas as well as assisting as a wedding planner for years. A member of Theresian’s International provided an opportunity for Mary’s growth in church personally, spiritually and intellectually enjoying the fellowship over two decades.

She was an inspiration to her children, family and friends with her enthusiasm for life.

She will be greatly missed.

We want to thank the caregivers at the Village Green for the love, compassion and kindness they showed Mary during the past eight months.

My sweet little momma,

I know you’re in heaven with our Lord who welcomed you home along with all who passed before cheering you through the golden gates. If we bottled all the love you gave your kiddos, grandkids, great grandchildren, family and friends it would fill the sky like fireworks for all the world to see.

Thank you a million times over mom for the love in your heart and the sound of your laughter. Many times I remember my hand slapping my leg-laugh out loud with tears coming down my face-because of something you said which brought the whole room screaming with laughter because of your humor. Oh my gosh the memories will forever be repeated for generations to come as we tell all about our mom. A woman’s who beauty matched the inside and outside; of course those who knew you could hear you say, “OK, OK sure, sure, that’s enough...”

I’ll end with what could be a never ending note of thanks to the best, strongest, kindness, amazing woman I’ve ever known who forevermore will be my hero in life. You may be gone but never forgotten. Mom you had a life well lived and we will all see you again one day in eternity with our lord Jesus Christ.

Gosh, I’ll miss you mom.
Love ya always,
Roseanne (child 4 - daughter number 3) 😘

I used to teach with Peggy in IL. We have many fun memories of our adventures together. Our deepest sympathy to Frank Jr. and Peggy and the whole family. We were fortunate to meet Mary in our log house in IL when they visited us back in the 70’s. We know she was loved by many and will be sorely missed, but she led a full life and was a wonderful, generous, kind, and beautiful wife and mother. Hoping you can have a proper memorial service for your final goodbyes, in spite of this pandemic. A mother’s love can never be replaced, and it lasts forever.......Love..........Dan & Mery Krause

Oh my I have a thousand and one things to say about my dear mom, its hard to pick several.
I remember as a kid playing jacks on our floor with mom as much as my sisters, we exercised together with Jack O Lane, mom cut my hair until I was a senior in High School. Mom always reminded me to think of others before my self. She taught me how to be strong, compassionate, always pray, give all my trails to Jesus, and never to cry over spilt milk.
I could go on and on but it would turn into a book.
