Lydia was such a dear friend. You were always so welcoming to Jeanne and I when we would go visit you in Austin. I have so many childhood memories with Lydia. Those memories of growing up in Odessa with all the Cortez have such a special place in my heart. They always bring a smile to my face. Lydia will be missed but never forgotten. My sincerest condolences to Dora and all the family.
Safely in Our Lords Arms. Rest In Peace.

Lydia was a beautiful soul who helped raise me from the day I was born. She was like a mom to me and I am so grateful for her impact on my life. She would always ask about my friends by name and was present for every single milestone of my life. I am so blessed by her presence in my life and I will never forget her laugh! Words cannot express the love I had for Lydia and how much I felt loved by her. She always said “I’ll see you when I see you.” So, Lydia, I’ll see you when I see you.

Lydia was one of the most loving and kind people in this world. I worked with her for many years at ATT. Lydia was the kind of person you could rely on. She was a bright light in this world! We will all miss her light.

Lydia was bestie to my mom, Rebecca Molina, when I was a young adult. They had each other through life's rollercoaster ride - lots of fun times and times when Lydia was our backbone and helped us to overcome a tough situation. She took us in like family and mentored me with house responsibilities and shared her faith. So much so that as I prepared for a traditional Catholic wedding years later, she sponsored me for my confirmation. Lydia was selfless, a giver, the nicest person I knew and God's angel on Earth. Rest in peace until we meet again.

Lydia was a very good friend and co-worker @AT&T, as well as a member of a fun group Ladies Of The, Lydia always told me I had been the first person in Austin to open my doors to her when she first came here..I will always treasure her friendship and all the wonderful memories we made and shared. Everywhere I turn in my house there is something to remind me of Lydia, our conversations we had would always start with how my family was.My wonderful friend God has made you an angel now ,watch over us as you are in our minds and heart and will be there for ever .Rest In Peace
and as our conversations would end ,Until whenever Chica.

Lydia, you were one of my very best friends from work. You and I met while working as operators for AT&T. We hung out and partied like there was no tomorrow. I had some of the best times with you and the rest of the girls and I thank you for that. I especially am thankful to you for housing my daughter Tamra and I when we needed a place to stay. You opened your home to us without asking for anything back in return. You had the biggest heart ever. Thank you also for hanging out with Mary Davis over at my house and playing cards with my mom , dad and I. We had so much fun. I will always remember you my friend. You will be missed and were loved by many. Rest in heavenly peace Sweet Lydia. You were one in a million.
