November 15, 1982 – March 23, 2021
Courtney O’Meara was born November 15, 1982 and passed away March 23, 2021 in El Paso, TX. First and foremost she was a wife and mother. Oh, did she ever love her babies and took as a mother with the utmost grace and pride. She always looked to bring joy and enrichment to their lives. Rick was her shining star and walked with her through their shortened journey, never leaving her side. She worked as a high school science teacher where she brought teaching and her love of kids together to become one of those awesome examples of an unforgettable teacher and friend. She found humor and a go getter attitude to be her everyday companion. She was born as Courtney Courreges and lived up to the name during her fight against cancer. She has held us all up and was so strong in her fight. Her contagious laugh and twinkle in her eye served to bring people together with joy in their hearts. She found humor in silly little things and added that sense of well-being to herself as well as others. She was able to bring strength into so many lives and used her sense of humor to lighten the burden so many people carry throughout their lives. She enjoyed life and family completely.
She was survived by her husband Rick, children Matthew, Olivia, and Madelynn, mother Judy, father Rene, three brothers with their wives Rene and Lourdes, Chris and Grace, Jason and Amanda, numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and lastly a plethora of friends from all walks of life.
Viewing will be held April 13, 2021 from 09:00 to 12:00 at the Hillcrest Funeral Home, 1060 N. Carolina Drive, El Paso, TX 79915.

My dearest friend. When I look back at our best of times, the most dominant memory is your laugh. Giggling through weekend nights, and Ms. Gomez’s class, teenage shenanigans... Oy vey! Your love for science and teaching started early- I sure wouldn’t have passed my college chem classes without you! Boy did you find the humor in anything. It made being around you a constant joy. I’m grateful for our friendship throughout and as it transitioned past high school. I’m grateful to have had you always in my corner pushing me out of my comfort zone. I will always love you and it had been entirely too long since we had caught up- but there is peace in my heart because knowing that although we didn’t talk as often as we really should have, you continued to live your life positively influencing others by just being you. I miss you. - Nadia

You’re smile lit up a room, your laugh was contagious, your heart full of love for everyone, your strength and courage was unparalleled. Even on your roughest days you were still being the thoughtful, caring person we all know and love by putting everyone’s needs in front of yours. You were selfless in your love and it showed in your immense love for life, for your family, your friends, in the everyday little things that you did to let everyone know you were there for us all. As surreal as it may seem that you are no longer with us, the reality that God needed an angel suits you just right. You were an angel on earth and your angelic duties have just continued in Heaven. You lived your life to the fullest and we are left with the beautiful memories of the amazing, kind-hearted, beautiful person that you were. We created memories that will last a lifetime, and had a friendship that will never be forgotten. You will truly be missed. So...goodbye until we meet again, your memory and the love I have in my heart for you, dear Courtney, will last forever. Rest In Peace my dear friend.

I miss you my friend. You are so dear to my heart. Thank you for your beautiful friendship. You have meant so much to me and my family. It was your strength that kept us going. You are an inspiration to so many. I love you and will treasure our friendship. I thank God for you. It’s not easy to accept but I realize you are needed in paradise with the Lord. You made him proud and you were just too special to remain on this Earth with us. I miss you and I love you, Courtney. I pray we will be together again celebrating the life we shared.
