Maria G. Lozano 1955-2019

On September 21, 2019, the Lord called unto Himself Maria Graciela Lozano, entering into eternal rest. Mary is preceded in death by her parents Idolina T. Garza, Ramiro Garza Sr. and Eloy Vela, her husband Miguel Lozano Jr., and her son Ricardo J. Lozano.

She is survived by her daughter Belinda Richardson and husband Victor, daughter Cynthia Mata and husband David, son Miguel Lozano III, brother Ramiro Garza Jr. and wife Rosie, and aunt Connie Moya. Mary was blessed with seven grandchildren: Mateo and John Richardson; David, Michael, Isabella and Anabella Mata; and Hannah Lozano.

Mary was born and raised in Falfurrias, TX, and graduated from Falfurrias High School. She dedicated her life to one of love, sacrifice and service, as a devoted wife of 41 years, mother, grandmother, daughter, niece, sister, and friend. She was an avid reader, enjoyed music, a great laugh, and long walks, but her family and faith were always the heart of her life. Her works of mercy went beyond her family and friends as she dedicated her time and efforts as a home care provider, serving faithfully for many years those in her community needing assistance, care and companionship. Her physical presence will be greatly missed, but her life on this Earth will remain, to all who knew her, a vivid sign of the love of God and the workings of the Spirit.

I will never forget my BFF , Mary Lozano(Cheli). We spent most of our summer days off enjoying and having tea parties and pretending we were mommies with our dolls. As we grew older we then played with our Barbie dolls, jump rope and hopscotch. Sometimes we would come up with adventures where we would travel to the beach and pack a lunch and have a picnic. We would never tire of filling up our days with play. Her grandma Meme and her Aunt Connie would have to yell from across the street at dusk to tell her to come home. As teens we collected 45 rpm records, talked about the latest songs on the radio, and rode our bikes all around our neighborhood. We had a wonderful friendship. To our family, Cheli was part of our family. We kept in contact throughout our lives as if time had not passed since our last conversation. She will be greatly missed. and she will always remain in my heart.

We had the best of times during our high school years. I remember during a flood we went tubing through an alley there in Falfurrias. But we went with some friends. I still can't believe we did that. But oh we were so young. There are too many memories that I have, can't put them all down. But know that I will never forget my friend. She will live forever in my heart till we see each other again walking the streets of gold. Mary I love you my friend!
