MARY YOLANDA DeLeon- Passed away with peace and grace October 2019, at the age of 77 years old, with her family at her side. Born in Madrid, Spain; and settled comfortably in Houston, Texas. Preceded by her deceased beloved mother, Amparo Gutierrez. Survived by her six daughters: Corena Garcia, Melinda Aguirre, Lisa Castillo, Monica Garcia, Sonia Gonzales, Mary Yolanda Gonzales; only son Rafael Gonzales. Additionally, leaves behind 24 grandchildren, 37 great grandchildren, 1 great-great grandson.
In her earlier adulthood days, Mary was a beautician; where the passion for creativity and style accompanied in all her years of living her best life. She had been married several times; more so, showing love for her was inevitable from the moment you laid eyes on such soul. Every gem she birthed may had their own childhood experiences and on, yet each has reckoned that she took pride in all her family.
She was a parishioner of Faith Memorial Baptist Church and Fellowship of the Nations Church. At each she was an avid angel on duty to deliver the word of her Lord. No matter her life tragedy and triumph, and/or attitude that given moment; her characteristic of trusting and believing in her faith you could not take away. Mary was known for her feisty, yet calming spirits. She will be missed by all that knew and loved the women she evolved to become. Ultimately the pearly heavens have opened up the golden gates for her eternal peace of rest.
