Mary V. Arellano, 75, Colorado City passed away on Sunday, March 17, 2019 in the Hendrick Hospice Center surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Loraine Texas on June 4, 1943 to Daniel and Pomposa Teran Vasquez. The Matriarch or her family, Mary always put God and family above all else. She was a selfless woman who spent her life helping family whenever or wherever she was needed. If Mary had anything to give of use, it was yours. She believed with hard work anything can be accomplished and showed this with a lifetime of service to all. Mary was always open and honest with her feelings and opinions. Mary was able to perfectly balance being firm, giving tough love when needed as well as showing those she cared about a warm unconditional love unparalleled by any sister, mother, or grandmother.
In her spare time she enjoyed her time in the Guadalupanas, crocheting, listening to music, going to dances, doing word searches, sewing and cooking, Mary custom made many dresses and other types of clothing for her family throughout the years, and those who had the opportunity to taste her tamales would tell you they were second to none.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I loved Mary very much she was so sweet and kind.she always had a beautiful smile on her face. When we worked together years ago we had so much fun. She always kept me laughing. And she took great care of my sweet aunt when she worked for home health. My little aunt Geneva loved her dearly. I pray for God to give all of the family peace and comfort.
