Faustina H Baca age 93, passed away peacefully to be with our Lord Jesus Christ and Blessed Virgin Mary on Tuesday, October 29, 2019. She was born July 27, 1926 in Colorado City, Texas. Tina graduated from Hotel Dieu School of Nursing and worked at Hotel Dieu Hospital and other Hospitals in the El Paso and Dallas areas.

She was a loving mother, friend, homemaker, seamstress and above all her passion was gardening at her ‘Little Casita’. She was very devoted to her family and faith. Her many joys were bringing her family together, not only for special occasions but simply just because she loved being around family. She enjoyed traveling and being with her circle of quilting friends. Her life was a living example of one of her favorite bible verses, Ephesians 4:32 – “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as in Christ God forgave you”.

I worked with Tina when she was a member of the YISD family. As I was a new nurse there, she was always smiling and very helpful. I could call on her to help me with the students under my care. I know she will be greatly missed by many. My sympathies to her family.
