November 4, 1939 – June 27, 2020
Aurora (De Los Santos) Hale, passed away peacefully from this life and into God’s arms on June 27, 2020. She was born on November 4, 1939, in San Antonio, Texas to Amado and Antonio De Los Santos.

In her early thirties, when she became a single Mom of six, Aurora enrolled in a city program that provided technical job training. Upon completion of the program, she became the first female technician for Sears, where she repaired washers and dryers. She gained popularity and was sought after by clients for her service. After many years of hard work and dedication, she retired from Sears and began to help her son, Felix Apolinar, with his home healthcare business. It was around this time, that she met her second husband, Earl Hale, a retired veteran and animal lover. She then earned certifications to pursue her own healthcare business. Together they became involved in the southside Miller’s Pond community where they pursued their passion for gardening and raising animals. They also became fully immersed in the lives of their grandchildren and formed relationships with local businesses to raise funds for Little League uniforms and equipment.
