At the age of eighty-five (85), the beloved, caring and admirable Señora Juanita López Ramírez, was called home to be with our heavenly father on the morning of Friday, November 6, 2020. Surrounded by her loved ones in the comfort of her home, she went peacefully after battling a long illness. We rejoice in the life of a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother as she was and maintained the heart of the Ramirez family. Born and raised in Bruni, Texas, on January 12, 1935, she brought warmth and light to the world and all who knew her. The sixth child of an adoring family of twelve children, she graduated from Bruni High School in 1957. Several years after high school she met her husband and soulmate of sixty years, Mr. Romeo Ramirez Sr. They were married on December 16, 1960.

In 1967, they moved to Channelview, Texas, where they were highly respected and admired throughout the community. Juanita loved and enjoyed spending her free time working and giving back to those in need. She donated her time to volunteering in different Charity Organizations such as Mary’s Kitchen and St. Andrews Catholic Church. At the yearly annual bazaar, she volunteered and made herself available to serve food and hosted different booths to raise funds for the church and community. Year round, she made monetary contributions to the St. Jude Foundation. She collected all her thank you notes, cards and stamps and many other items and placed them next to her recliner. This is where she kept all those items that were remarkably close and very dear to her heart.

As a mother, grandmother and great grandmother, she cultivated a loving and endearing home with a passion for cooking, baking, hosting family and friends and celebrating life. Her home was filled with many years of unforgettable memories and memorabilia of everyone whom she loved and held dear to her heart. She will be remembered for her deep faith in God and family and her exhilarating constant love and compassion. Throughout her years of life, one of her greatest attributes was and enduring and unwavering support and love for her immediate family. She will live in our hearts through her memories, her art, her many stories and the constant love she exuded with her look and smile.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Jesus López Huerta and Nicolasa López del Bosque; brothers and sisters Enrique López, Juan Jose López, Asención López Guerra, Eloisa López Alemán, Maria López Garibay, Isabel López Barnes, and Jesus López Jr. She is survived by four siblings: Manuelita López Acevedo, Roberto López, Ramiro López and Rogelio López.

I met Juanita when I was 11 years old. Her and her family welcomed us with open arms when we were new to Channelview and did not know very many people. Her family and my family immediately began a friendship that lasted a lifetime. I had the pleasure of meeting her parents, all her siblings, most nieces and nephews, etc. We shared many holidays, birthdays, and special occasions together. When I turned 15, she and her husband volunteered to take me to church for a blessing and became my Padrinos! I loved her good humor and hearty laughter. But most of all, her warm, friendly, and loving personality! She was a great lady and will be missed by everyone! 🙏💜🌹
