Angelina H Leyvas
April 25, 1931 – January 8, 2021
Angelina H Leyvas, 89, went to her heavenly home on January 8, 2021 after a brief illness at Baptist Hospital, Beaumont Texas. She was born on April 25, 1931 in Bisbee, Arizona. Although born in Arizona, she called Port Arthur, Texas her home for the past forty years.
She leaves her children Joe Urrea (Evelyn), Anita Sepeda (Thomas), and Kris Urrea; grandchildren Angie Collier, Candace Blakeley, Lisa Lopez, Jessica Medina, Angela Romero, Belinda Amparano, Billy Amparano Jr., Bill Garcia, and Gabriel Garcia; and numerous great and great-great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, Gregorio and Margarita Leyvas, and her daughter, Sarah Amparano. Nana was a devout Christian and most recently was a member of Central Baptist Church in Port Neches. She loved singing her hymns and prayed for her family faithfully each day. Despite dropping out of school at the age of 15 due to the death of both of her parents, at 50 years old, Angelina obtained her dream of earning her GED. After retiring from Park Place Hospital in Port Arthur as a central supply tech, she continued working well into her 80s as an independent housekeeper. Never one to sit still, she was always driving to do her own errands and loved to help with yardwork up until a few weeks before her passing.
Memorial services to be held at a later date.

I love listening to your voicemail messages that I never erased. I love pulling out all your clothes in your closets and drawers, and remembering how you looked in each outfit. I love how your knickknacks and kitchen items spark so many memories of my childhood. I love how you were always there to listen to me vent my frustrations or laugh at funny stories we shared with each other. I love how you enjoyed joking around with my dad, Eddie, and Matthew. I love that you shared every big moment in my life. I love how even though I moved far away, we talked on the phone for hours frequently. I love those shocking words that would come out of your mouth on occasion that had all of us rolling with laughter. I love how you taught me to be a hard worker. I love how you always insisted on cutting the grass and picking up all those leaves. I love how you enjoyed driving yourself all over town. I love how you were so tiny and couldn’t see over the steering wheel. I love how you always remembered everyone’s birthdays and anniversaries. I love that you were so frugal and never wanted to buy yourself anything new. I love all your home remedies that you passed onto us. The list could go on and on. I’m just so thankful for all these memories. I now know how blessed I was to have had you all these years, but there still will definitely be a huge void in our lives. Love you soooo much, Nana.
