Tilda (Cleotilde) Chavez, 91 yrs., March 7, 1928 – October 4, 2019. Tilda left us while sleeping peacefully on October 4, 2019.

Tilda was a very strong-willed lady, raising her seven children and taking in others along the way. Strong willed with a vivacious personality and a huge heart for loving those she cared for deeply. She never held back her opinion and had a knack of telling it like it was. Her hands were rarely still, working at times two jobs at a time to support her family and cooking her delicious recipes. Tilda loved her music and dancing, listening to her favorite artist in her recliner was one of her favorite pastimes. She was very proud of all her children and their accomplishments and prayed blessings over them all. Please join in celebrating her life at Forest Park Lawndale, Houston, Texas. Viewing and Rosary will be on Wednesday October 9, 2019, Grand Chapel of Forest Park, rosary to be recited at 7:00 Pm.

I remember our daughter Lauren talking about how she adored ‘Grandma’ and how the two of them would make each other laugh. Crystal would also be making her laugh and they would all get tickled with each other. It’s sweet to know the girls brought her laughter! I’m sure she is full of joy in Heaven with Jesus and her loved ones!

Condolences to the family of Tilda Chavez. I knew her sisters, my mother-in-law, Margaret V. Rodriguez, & Ninfa Perez, since the 60's. The few times we met, she always greeted me with a smile. God blessed Tilda with long life and a beautiful family.
